    He's got one on guitar and one on the vocal mic at the back of the stage. This is from 2008 Lollapalooza.

    Jack White always seems like he should be a tall skinny dude and then I see pictures of him with muscly arms. Its funny. Is he fading in vocals with it?

    The mic is a "Copperphone" microphone made by Placid Audio.

    Hey Zach! I miss your guitars. Should've bought one when I had the chance.
    I've got this guy making me one that's similar.
    Here's video of his work.
    He uses your effects in guitars, based on Dave Mason's designs for Matt Bellamy of MUSE.
    Cool stuff.

    Man, Jack White sure must be OCD - whenever he gets into something, he really gets into it. All his effects back in his White Stripes days were all painted red, or red and white. Now he's on this copper kick, so all his effects are copperplated.

    Kinda crazy. Cool, but still a little crazy.

    How cool is that? They put a Squier super-sonic in that game?

    Those are super cool guitars. I used to have 2 of 'em. I couldn't deal with the short scale necks though.

    PS: It all makes sense, now. I was watching Jack at the Tabernacle a few weeks ago wondering, "What's all that stuff back there? I want that stuff." I believe I even posted a thread as such.
    Give me that stuff, Zach. And by give I mean seriously give me that stuff, I'm broke.:messedup
