Seems to me back in the day there was a pick-up that could be slid along a metal bar. The bar was attached to the pick guard. It was associated with jazz guitar. I thought that it was a Gibson product, but nothing in Gibson literature mentions it. Does anyone know what I am referring to?

DeArmond. Check out this site (http://vintagearchtop.com/dearmond.htm)
Popularly referred to as a Monkey on a stick. If you find one they are bringing serious money.

Love DeArmonds. Kent and other cheapo aftermarkets did it too.
