Summer NAMM 2019: French builder Wild Customs has introduced the Gyrock, a “revolutionary” new system that enables guitarists to load up to six pickups into a guitar and then switch between them in seconds—even, the company says, mid-song.

The pickups are installed and replaced via the Gyrock’s rear-mounted modules. Players then physically switch between them by manipulating two shifters located on the upper bout of the guitar’s body.

The patent-pending system is currently available only on Wild Customs guitars, with a starter pack of Seymour Duncan pickups.
