is he tapping some kind of button on his guitar? and how does he get the strings to sound if he's not picking, or otherwize hitting them with his right hand?

omg, i swear i'm not seeing what i'm seeing right now. i've heard of this guy a long time ago, but i'm just witnessing this for the first time. that much feedback and delay, at those volumes is FREAKIN' HARD to controll, and this guy doesn't freakin' slop one freakin' note.

Buckethead uses a Gibson Les Paul baritone loaded with active pickups and a killswitch.
There once was a man who really loved salt
So he tied his nose to the sea
And then God came down from his silver throne
And said, 'Honey, that water ain't free

His Gibson was custom made, though it is a baritone.

I'm not sure if he's got active pickups. He has got a Sustaniac installed in there (or it might be the Fernandes Sustainer, can't remember).

He has had the controls redone and only has a master volume and tone, moved the pickup selecter to a rotary switch in place of one of the controlls (I think this is the one with the stormtrooper head on it) and the big red button is a killswitch (ala Tom Morello)


he's also got a white Jackson RR with a floyd and the KFC logo painted on it

or for a more realistic take on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckethead

He's damn good at guitar, has played with a bunch of people (replace Slash for a short in time in GnR but then left, played with Les Claypool any many others), kind of wierd due to the entire persona thing but I think it adds a kind of humbleness to a guitarist

I think he's brilliant.
Some of his playing styles are one of a kind and a lot of songs are the summit of originality (Big Sur Moon, anyone). Yet he has some great Blues in'em as well (Too Many Humans, for example) and can shred like a maniac.

Plus, due to his awesome disguise, noone has really ever seen his real face (Well, they have, but didn't know it was him, that's my point), so he has all the privacy in the world. For all you know he's your next door neighbour...

Can he go in to killl zone mode like pettruci? i guess not. Buckethead has less fans than dream theater so Pettruci can get away with it more.. You guys all probly have no clue what im talking about.

My guitar, a Biscayne Flyer Ltd have a switch for each pickup (2 pickup) to turn it off and on. So i just turn it off and on quickly to make that effect. Very simple.

For those who haven't seen buckethead real face, here's a old picture of him:

and that's the only known picture of him unmasked.
