    yep, it's half of a precision bass pickup.

    why someone would do that?... actually, I would like to listen the sound of that freak guitar.

    They also did something to the low E at the bridge. Looks like they excluded it from the tremolo somehow.

    perhaps, you guys gotta remember Leo Fender himself did some pretty nutty experiments that led to some really spectacular guitar designs and tones.

    I would reserve my own judgements til after playing it firsthand, I think it could be kinda cool.

    As for the two jacks, maybe he wired it in stereo?

    This whole thing looks strange. It looks like someone wanted to have a bass and 6 string guitar in one guitar w/one neck. Only, the bass pu was put under the wrong strings. One jack could be for the bass pu, the other for the bridge pu. I don't even know what tuning is to be used with this thing. I'd be curious to hear the sounds that come out of it.

    Id guess they were using it much of the time as a drone.

    So yeah, some weird hippie influenced idea there.

    Looks like one coil from a P-Bass and another from a Mustang Bass.

    The lower one is the output. The upper one is where you connect the water pipe.

    actually im suspecting this might be like what the guy from Local H did when they couldnt find a bass player. He put bass pickups on his SG through a different output jack into a bass amp

    AFAIR, one coil of a split Precision Bass pickup makes a pretty tidy mandolin pickup. The Mustang/Electric XII coil should throw a wide enough magnetic field to sense both the E and A strings. What happens to the signals after that is anybody's guess. (My suggestion is split signals a la Billy Sheehan Attitude signature bass.)

    Relocating the anchoring point of the low E string is probably just a crude attempt to achieve a better break angle over the bridge saddles. (A Buzz Stop would have looked tidier.)
