I'd always been fascinated by this idea, but I thought you needed a 
sepearate speaker for each string.  Can you just distort each string 
seperately and then combine it back into one speaker?

     Yes, the Roland GR 300 has this feature: an hexa magnetic pick up 
     distorts each string than mixes the signal and sends a mono output. 
     The result is a very "clean" sound if compared to a fuzz box.
     Maybe Matthias Grob can tell you more about his experience with an 
     hexa piezo with individual string output and distortion. A very 
     unusual and nice sound.
