Orfeus pickup detail from Lord Bizarre
Last June we took a look at a Bulgarian-made Orfeus 12-string semi-hollowbodied guitar.

Lord Bizarre
, collector and enthusiast of such weird guitars, has emailed me with further information about the rather strange-looking staggered pickups. He says:
"They're single coils (possibly handwound) and then fitted arround three square magnets and held with some rope bands. Very strange construction and therefore perhaps 4 pu's needed for 12 strings (3 magnets/pu x 4 pu's = 12 "polepieces" I presume...)"
Weird indeed! And thanks for the feedback.
