I had a client ask me about neck pickups. To make an electric sound like an acoustic. What is he talking about?

To my knowledge, no pickup exists that will do that.
There might be some stuff that will get close (and need to be tweaked).

Could he possibly be thinking about something like the Taylor electrics that have a humbucker under the fretboard or Taylor acoustics with the Expression System that have a pickup under the fretboard extension? Maybe he's associating that design with making an electric guitar sound like an acoustic?

Not a neck pickup but a bridge piezo. Check out Godin SAX models or the graphtech Ghost system. Very cool. My live electric rig is a Godin. Acoustic, electric, and synth sounds all mixable with foot pedal. drop d takes a new meaning with a distorted synth patch dropped two octaves down...

That is precisely what I am looking for. The Ghost System. Thanks!!!

I'm a big fan of graphtech products. And having a guitar like that opens up a huge range of entertainment.

I have to say, that's pretty amazing...

Yes, Piezo Bridge transducers. There are a whole host of options, just search for Piezo Bridge. Anything from just replacing Strat saddles to the whole shebang. I'm a big fan of Baggs for anything involving Piezo crystals.

Was he, by chance, referring to the Shadow Nanomag pickup? I played a LP Ultra III with one and was quite impressed.
