zakk wylde les paul

hey

this is just for the bls ozzy osbourne fans
okay i guess thats all you guys.

is there any reason why zakk put's his strings over the top of the tail piece on his les pauls rather than through i dont mean the tune 0 matic i mean
the one below that the tail piece./
the only thing i think it would do is make the strings completely straight up to the neck.

much appreciated any knowledge is welcome

other than that, probably just to be cool

because zakk is the king of pinch harmonics do you guys think it might have something to do with that.

I'd think that it'd give more sustain, due to the straightening of the string, and because of this, there is less contact between the strings and the bridge, so they'll keep vibrating longer methinks.

More sustain, less string tension.. less string breakage.

No.

He also does it so he can pull off a neat harmonic effect were he rakes the strings behind the bridge. Listen to "Superterrorizer" and 40 seconds in you'll hear it.
