    I think it's the bottom three strings are all tuned to A, but at least two of them would be different octaves. Or maybe triple-A tuning refers to open A, which would have three A strings much like open C has - shock! - three C strings?

    nah, no 7 strings back then, they came into the picture (for recordings at least) during Synchestra (where he used a LTD 607B) . Even Alien was recorded on a 6 string Les Paul turned GCGCGC (including massive intonation issues :) )
    I don't think the entire thing was in AAA either, I would guess it's mostly "his" standard open C

    When I think Strapping Young Lad music, I see skullet Devin, evil as hell. Thinking of DTP brings up images of bald, current Devin. I think the look matches the music in both cases perfectly.

    After perusing my much viewed Alien documentary, I see that this is CORRECT! The only bit of guitar recording in the video is with a black Les Paul. All the 7 string action in the video is done when the full band are doing drum takes. I learn something new every day!

    Devy just posted a short clip of a new guitar of his.



    As both a mathematician and a huge Devin Townsend fan, I really love this guitar.

    Funny story, I ran into him at the Whole Foods where I work just before he was headed to YVR to go to Mexico

    Didn't expect to see Love? in the setlist. Wonder if we'll see more of that in the future? Wouldn't be entirely surprised if he snuck one in at the Brixton gig at this point.
