Keith McMillen have announced the world's first polyphonic sustainer pickup system, the StrongArm Six-string Sustainer.

The Keith McMillen Strong Arm fits on any Fender-style guitar. With one simple control, you can adjust the amount of sustain, going from angelic smooth to nasty hard. Play any note, chord or harmonic and it will keep going until you stop it.

The StrongArm Sustainer works by picking up and driving all six strings by systems embedded within the saddle piece. A small amount of energy imparted to the string keeps it sustaining forever. The way this energy applies makes it the most accurate and full-sounding bridge pickup ever.

A simple blend control adjusts the mix from your regular magnetic pickups with the StrongArm Sustainer sound.

The StrongArm Sustainer comes with a USB port for charging and communicating with the free editor, meaning you can make presets to control all parameters such as which strings sustain and where.
