Re: OT:Clicky switches and maybe microphonic guitar...

I have to admit that Im not using it that way, I dont tune my guitar to open tuning, although I intend to set up some GR55 patches which will virtually do that. I have 3 bend arms fitted, which is a bit overkill, as you have to move at least 1 of them out of the way. Im using it to push certian strings up a tone (and one string down) this doent really result in the typical country sound, but thats mostly my playing. For me the nice thing is that chord playing can start to sound a bit fluid and "slippery" (technical musical term)... and can nicely push a minor chord to major, or rather I like to do the reverse. Play a chord with one arm pressed down (giving a major tone) and slowly releasing it, making it minor... A bit like Spiritualized do.

I need more practice though, its not as easy as it looks!

Nice!  Don't hear too many using this lovely piece of engineering marvel ;)
I assume you're talking about the Deusenberger/Rockinger Multibender bridge for slide works, yes?

I would love me such a setup. I stopped playing slide because I got so tired of playing majors only, and just didn't know about the various multibenders.
The ability to do minors and augmenteds takes slide playing to a whole different kosmos.

If only the base part could be redesigned to look a Bit less bulky, and be made for seven strings, I'd be totally sold.
Actually, I've sometimes thought of asking them about this, and have me a double neck build.  Hehe, a fretless neck would be equally suitable both for fretless and slide works, so...
