Here they are again. In this video Chet is using his long scale Del Vecchio that Doyle Dykes gave him:

What is that black device behind the nut on Chet's guitar?
Loved both of these by the way, what a great pairing and superb synchronization!

Sure looks like a Floyd Rose string clamp to me. Maybe Chet or Doyle had tuning-stability problems on that guitar, and added the clamp to lock the strings after they were tuned.

Chet had a lot of work done to that DV after Doyle gave it to him. (New fretboard, truss rod, etc.)

Chet experimented with string clamps and fine tuners on both DVs.

Thanks,
