I didn't get a security warning and I did see the picture...but this is a State computer...so YMMV.
And it does look like a clever little solution.

I did indeed build my own with a mini HB. The way I did it covers less of the hole for more acoustic sound, pickup closer to the neck but this looks pretty good...got to attach the wiring and I also grounded the strings....
These kinds of things can make a great sound, not quite 'acoustic' but a nice capability to have about if you have a spare pickup to adapt.
I found on mine that the harmonics on the 5th fret are absent which is a bit of a pain, it's all about position I guess. One day I might spring for a 'shadow' or similar more 'convincing' mag acoustic sound, but these kinds of things can sound really good.
Nice fine Ash...if i'd seen that earlier, maybe...LOL.

That'd be a correct guess.
On any guitar, placing the pickup exactly at the position where you'd expect to find the 24th fret will greatly reduce, or even completely negate, the harmonics you normally find at the 5th fret. This is a property of the relation between the pickup and its location along the string, not of the pickup itself.
Proof of this concept is easy (for some!): merely capo a Jazzmaster (after first procurring one for testing purposes!!) at the first fret, then attempt to "harmonic" the 6th fret - can't do it, can ya? The JM's Neck pup is located directly under what we'd normally call the 25th fret. Capoing the first fret moves all relationships along the string one fret's worth....
It's worth noting that some Humbucker equipped guitars don't exhibit this "feature"..... For them, the magnetic field is off-center from that 24th fret location, thus the cancellation is hardly noticible. But only on some Hb-stuffed axes - others do indeed have the "problem".
