    It's a kill switch. You can see him use it during the You Really Got Me vid.

    What link were u watching, I didn't see him use it. Why does he need a kill switch with a pickup selector and volume knob?

    You'd actually need two volume knobs, one for each pickup, in order to use the pickup selector switch as a kill switch. Turn the neck pickup volume knob down to zero and there you go. Like on his shark or on a Les Paul for instance. The two knobs on the Wolfgang are volume and tone.

    Oh and in the YRGM clip he is turned toward the amp while using the kill switch in order to get feedback. So his back is facing the audience at that part of the solo.

    Good. While I always thought it was a kill switch, I was a little worried it was wired up to some new kind of sustainer. Glad to see that thing wasn't around.

    Agreed. Good Riddance.
    We train dogs for cattle and sheep herding. They're very different. Sheep are a lot like supermodels - they bunch together, they rattle very easily. Cattle are like drunks at a hockey game - two will want to fight: "Who are you and what's with your badge?"

    Two of them will be like: "Leave them alone, let's go see the game." Another one is lost: "Where'd you guys go?" The dog has to deal with all of that. You work them off a whistle. It's the original video game.

    Someone posted that he was using one of those electric cigarettes. Just in case some of you may not know what an electronic cigarette is here you go:

    I put this in another thread, but nobody responded, but he also appears to be using a wireless again. I wonder if that will stay that way or if he will go back to the jump rope for the tour.

    Wow, a lot of questions answered in this thread that I was thinking of asking! One further one: is it a Stealth Wolf that he's playing? Looks good, I assume it's an ebony fretboard? Also, does anyone know if he's going to do the money grab again by auctioning of the Art Series like he did last tour?

    That's cool snostorm, I hope he keeps it for tour. Maybe now that he's got a clear head, he's gone back to them. He swore off them back in the VH3 era.

    While watching that little video on the tour of the factory, there's a part where it kind of implies that they were making a set that Ed was going to stripe up himself for the tour.
