Hello, I came across this pic of Adam D from KSE



If you can see, There is something up on the neck of his guitar between the strings but I dont know what it is.

Rob Arnold also has it on his guitar, See Here at :41

I remember hearing that its suppose to cut noise or something, Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Er, you mean the metal bar behind the nut?

It's called a string retainer, and it's not between the strings

ohh, it makes it so you can play with one hand w/o excess noise (Michael Angelo Batio used that to play his 4 neck with both hands)

if u take a tube sock and wrap it around where it is on the pic you get the same effect

OH, well the thing in that picture looks like a hair-tie, people sometimes put them over the strings on the fretboard to reduce notesfrom ringing out, they don't do anything when behind the nut like that

Right. Its only purpose is to keep the strings in the nut. Since its behind the nut they don't do anything to stamp out excess noise from accidentally hitting the strings. the best way to do this is a hairband.
