comment Correctly notating sharps and flats
It depends upon what key you are working in at the moment, and the key signature for that key. One cannot generalize about whether it should be Eb or D# by itself; it depends upon the context in which you are using it.

comment Bass clef changed to treble clef in the middle of the sheet music
The point is this: Usually, a piano grand staff has the treble clef on top and the bass clef on bottom, and the pitches are absolute. However, piano notation implies that the upper clef is the part played by the right hand, while the lower clef is the part played by the left hand. So if the range of the notes in either hand goes much higher or much lower, it can be notated with two staves with a treble clef on each, or two staves with a bass clef on each, etc.

RMC is a small company that built in small batches. They used to own the hexaphonic bridge pickup market, but when Fishman and Graph Tech got into that space they took much of RMC's business away. Since the RMC website, ancient though it is, is still up, I'm hoping they are still in business, but I don't know for sure.

The Keith McMillen system looks to be the most promising. It also came with a suite of custom software for hexaphonic signal processing on Mac OS X. But McMillen doesn't make them anymore -- they got into unusual MIDI keyboard and foot pedal and keypad controllers for keyboardists and DJs and those are selling briskly.

Many years ago I had a Brian Moore iGuitar (a cheap Korean one) with a hexaphonic piezo bridge pickup. But I used it for MIDI only, plugging it into a Roland MIDI converter and an Axon MIDI converter. However, I remembered that there were some gizmos for processing hexaphonic audio. The Gibson Robot Guitar to the Dusk Tiger were rather impractical because Gibson only put this technology on high-end, expensive guitars, and I knew it wouldn't last.
