Hey guys,

Look at these photos:

Looks like the guitarist has a Gibson Flying V with a brige different than the standard one:

Is there a Flying V with this kind of bridge, or did he put a custom one himself? The guitar is indeed an original Gibson because he endorses Gibson guitars.

Thanks.

My guess is he put a new bridge on it. By the looks of it, the bridge that he has would increase the guitar's sustain.

Thanks... do you (or anyone else) know what kind of brige is it?

Definitely modified.

Edit: String-thru, I'm looking around...

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

Could be some kind of fine-tuning tailpiece.
I'm currently working on a system to generate MIDI from the motion of a guitar. More info coming soon.

Dirk Sauer, he is the rhythm guitarist of the band Edguy. You won't find any information about his gear on the internet though.

The bridge is a standard Gibson tune-o-matic bridge. The oversized tailpiece is the Gibson TP-6 fine-tuning tailpiece. These came out in the early 1980s. They are simply an oversized stop tailpiece with six individual fine tuners. As far as I know, the only Gibson guitar that still has this device is the B.B. King ES-355 Lucille model. B.B. King has said he likes the thing very much. I had one on an SG and it was very handy.

They are probably still available somewhere.
