2 solutions that I know of:
- a box that do the conversion of the individual pickups to midi (ie GR-55)
- a breakout box that split the individual pickups to 6/7 phono

I went with the second option. I am using PD for the conversion to  
midi (using the excellent  
http://www.katjaas.nl/helmholtz/helmholtz.html) and as a bonus I have  
the 6 individual signals that I can play with (panning, delay only on  
B...). All this inspired by the work of:  
http://rickygraham.com/research/ - i have yet to try pd2live.

The main difference is that I'm using USB to power the guitar and the  
volume & switch on the guitar is available as a midi device (USB too).  
Here's some photos of the setup:
