Its not just custom, its a Baritone (bigger body) with removed binding, a moved toggle switch, a killswitch, and a stormtrooper tone knob.

Yeah, its custom made by Gibson because he's 6'4" and has huge hands, so a normal sized guitar is harder for him to play.

A guitarist who almost no one has heard of is overrated? That's interesting.

I'd heard he was closer to 6'6 or 6'7. 6'4 isn't that abnormally tall.

Does he use standard tuning or does he use baritone type tuning?

He uses standard. It isn't a Baritone I don't think, I have heard it is just a longer scale neck, aren't Baritone a different tuning? Anyway, it is because of his freakish finger length.

Nope, its a baritone, it does have a larger scale neck because of that though. And yes, Baritones have a slightly different tuning but he tunes it to Standard.

Actually that was Axl on his departure from G'n'R. He was never in RHCP, he auditioned however and they really liked his playing but wanted someone who could "kick a groove".

His transient lifestyle? Is he like a partier or druggie or something?

Or could he really just never talk and actually act like a robot?

I actually like the neck with no inlays. Looks cool. Also, what is on his volume and tone knobs? Why does he only have 3?
Be cool.

Ask all your friends if they've heard of Buckethead. Chances are, less than a quarter of them have.

I'm assuming he has two tones and one volume. Some guitars only have one tone or one volume, some have one of each, some have two of each.

Actually its only two, he has a volume knob that is just a clear dial, a tone knob with a stormtrooper head on it, his toggle switch (it was moved), and his killswitch.

All of my guitarist friends know who Buckethead is. Hes a very well known guitarist. Ever since he toured with GNR and Guitar Hero 2 came out, many non guitarists have heard of Buckethead.

So, I still don't see how the guy is over rated. You still haven't given us one thing that shows how he is over rated. IMO, I think he lives up to this name.
Be cool.

Are you talking about how I said I didnt like him from the older thread, or did you misqoute me in this thread? I didnt say he was overrated in this thread, I just said he's well know.

Its a homemade killswitch, you can get the stuff to make one for about 4 bucks from radio shack, you just need the button (easier to use than a toggle switch and lets you still use both pickups), some wiring, and butt connectors, along with a bit of technical know-how. There are alot of guides on how to do it available, its nothing fancy really.

I don't think so, the normal toggle switch is still in the top right.

No it's not. He moved it. There's a little cap there now.
