    I do not know the design difference between that and other types of pickups. I know they look different, but what are the tonal characteristics, when were they introduced, and basic info? Also, what the heck are piezo pickups?

    The remind me of a fatter tele sound. They still have that brightness but with more bottom end.

    FWIW: I have a Lollar P90 in my Motor Ave Le Mans.
