    Default Eddie's Patent - Guitar back lift

    Hi guys,

    I havent seen any discussions on this before and always wondered why Eddie stopped using that table like device on the back of his guitar to lift it to a flat surface so he can do tapping easier.

    Here is a link to his official patent of the device. Did you know that he has this?

    I don't think it makes normal tapping easier per se but it makes the kind of piano tapping like at the beginning of the solo in Judgement Day easier. Just my 2 cents (or 1p in Sterling) ;-)

    That's the best invention I've seen since Navin Johnson's "Opti Grab".

    I've read several interviews with Ed where he mentions the "tray table" and says that it's too uncomfortable having the thing bolted to the guitar for the entire concert.

    He couldn't figure out a way to charge $149.99 for one.
