    What does the "monkey on a stick" refer to?.

    The name references the pickup and mount’s resemblance to the old mechanical monkey-on-stick toy.
    It’s just a nickname for the sliding DeArmond pickup.
    I’ve heard them referred to as “monkey on a stick” for decades.
    The pickup slides on the mount for optimum sonic performance/tone variations.

    Not a photo, but it does have a “photo” of those guys. 50 years ago. Hard to believe. First concert I ever went to.
