Have any of you looked into the 8-way Seattle Super Switch that Neil Brown has been developing?

Its still in the crowd-funding stage, but I love that its a new idea for guitar tones. It seems so many of us are focused on "how they used to do it"—vintage spec—etc. This looks like a pretty interesting idea for accessing more pickup combinations in a 3-pickup guitar.

In Episode 48 of the Fret Files (Eric Daw's guitar focused pod cast, http://www.fretfiles.com/) - Eric talks with Neil about the switch and how he came up with it. The delay in their connection during that interview makes the conversation sound a little more strained that it would normally be - but good stuff.

I'm feeling compelled to order one, to help fund it, in no small part because I love the idea of trying to bring something new to the Strat word.
