If it is the 6 separate critters then probably make an X10 sound really really good...well really X3 good ... great string separation and balance in volume .... Stuff like that.

The six separate piezos on the X10 are simply mind blowing. If the Graphtech can do this as well, then it is a winner. My curious side wonders if these mute the sound of a guitar when unplugged.

The X10's individual saddles/pickups are made by Graphtech.

Thank you all for your responses. I asked because the pickup was unfamiliar to me and Alistair has suggested that it should go on the new thin-bodied, X10-OSN electric guitar. It won't be magnetic (nylon strings) and I don't need midi. But it will be active and I am looking forward to the sound.
