I think I saw a description once.
One of the guitar pickups is run "in reverse".
i.e. the amplified guitar signal is sent to the pick-up, which
vibrates the string.
I don't know if you need a special pickup for this, but certainly
some regular pickups would burn out rather quickly.
If that's right, it would be a fixed position ebow.
