Anybody know anything about these? It looks kinda like a "humbucker-and-a-half."
In one review of the Alvarez Dana II on Harmony Central, the reviewer said he didn't know which coils of that pickup were used in which of the five selector switch positions, "and I won’t bother to disassemble it to find out, because I just like the sound and that’s that."
Well, alrighty, then.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that many of the Google "finds" that mention it are so long-gone, they're not even cached.

isn't that just special?
someone who thinks they're qualified to write a review on a guitar,
and thinks you need to disassemble something to tell which coils are being used, in any of the switch positions.

And from the back (large pic):
I kinda wish they hadn't buried it behind the Floyd Rose®, but it still fascinates me. Somebody suggested that if wired right, that could be like an SC and a humbucker, but with the middle SC a lot closer to the HB than usual. (Maybe even like three SCs, yathink?

Were they not called "Tribuckers?"
Not that I've seen anywhere. I think I've seen one being called a "Motherbucker," but that name is really for a Kent Armstrong four-blade pup. (Dunno if MightyMite still makes a pickup by that name, or not.)
