    I've heard things about that. I've heard everything from the fact that it's a cable that holds his guitar cord in place so it doesn't tangle, to the fact that it's a stereo cable.
    I'm not sure what to believe either.
    Rols, would you have any idea?
    Anyone?

    On the "3" Tour....I saw Ed come unplugged twice at two different shows......so my guess is to keep him untangled and plugged in.

    I heard people say that we dropped the wireless because it colored his tone.........I wonder if he ever thought it was those 5150's messing his shit up.............Just a joke......I own one of those buzzy things.

    Whatever the fuck he did, he needs to undo it. The 3 tone was the worst buzzsaw gross mess I've ever heard from him, yuck.

    From some other pictures I looked at it looks like a contraption to keep his cable untangled and away from him.

    It doesnt look like a device to stop his guitar lead tanglin'....its twice the size of a normal lead, it looks like its goin' into a jack next too his strap, could it be some sort of MIDI interface?, or some direct feed into somethin'...I dunno I'm ramblin' 'ere

    Well I can't get over the stupid looking face he's making in the pic long enough to even notice
    the 'mystery' cord. Although I too have read that it was to keep him from getting tangled up in his guitar cord. I've got three video boots from the VH3 tour where he steps on his cord and unplugs his guitar. All three times during Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love.

    I read the same thing some time ago about this, but it seems really odd to me that having this incredibly bulky, ugly, protruding device is the best idea that Ed came up with to keep his cord outta his feet.

    Then again, perhaps he was trying to trip Gary…

    HI,

    I didn't know till the super close picture I saw of it , it's a thingy to kepp his cord from coming unplugged and getting tangled, silly IMO just another thing to make things look more complicated than they are.

    Speaking of cables and wireless...

    I'm very seriously considering trying a good UHF wireless system, after *gulp* 20 years of dealing with cord pretzels, no matter what kind of cord I try, I'm sick enough of it that I'm about to drop the hammer! It's either that, or stand still while I'm playing, which there's no way in hell I can do!

    Anybody out there have much experience with wireless? Does it really compress your tone? Any brand/model recommendations? Some sagely advice would be greatly appreciated! Say, where's Wengie when you need him?!

    Thanks!

    That second cord coming out of the guitar looks like more than just a device to keep the normal cord from coming unplugged. It looks like a midi or mic cable to me. It looks like it has it's own special jack to plug into. Maybe Ed was experitmenting with guitar synth stuff.

It looks kind of like a key-chain. That other thing sticking out of the guitar looks like an XLR cable to me, or at least an XLR-like connector. I'm no guitar expert, but I work in the audio/video industry - I bet it's some kind of special stereo or effects line or something.
