    No 7 String but he did rock the baritone hybrid for Isolation.

    Don't get it. Why would someone want a 7 string? Lets make a 14 string whilst we're at it. Or maybe a 9 string, or maybe a 27 string......

    Awesome guitarist though. Seen him up close and personal a couple of yrs ago

    Fair point. Guess I'm just a traditionalist. :)

    I pick a 7 up almost 80% of the time I play. I just love having access to low notes without sacrificing anything.

    I prefer 6 strings as well but it's always good to have options...[​IMG]

    That puts Rick Nielsen's quintuple-neck guitars to shame!

    I don't know why he would use a baritone hybrid, "Isolation" is just in Drop C. I would see for maybe one of the songs where he's tuned that E down to Ab

    He had said that the Baritone Hybrid was more for his solo stuff in Drop B.

    He probably just used a regular stoptail version of his Tremonti model for "Isolation."

    A great deal of the AB material, especially from Blackbird and AB3 is drop B though and he's using his black signature model with Another Animal sticker on it for those tunes

    That's the Bb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb tuning that is used in AB. Half step down + low E dropped to Bb. He doesn't really use the Hybrid for this. The Drop B used in Tremonti is B F# B E G# C#, or Drop D 1 1/2 steps down. This is really what the Hybrid is designed for.

    He uses the hybrid on tour for Isolation. Saw AB back in August and that was the guitar he used.
