A tape on Steve's neck pu

I read this years Ibanez catalogue and noticed that Steve has a tape placed on top of his neck pups high e-string magnet.
Is that a way to get some tones or is it there accidentally cause there is some writing on the tape (like KONX or something.. )?
I think the quitar is his main guitar, "Evo"

I think i read that the tape is there to prevent the high strings from getting hooked under the edge of the pickup bobbin during extreme trem use.

Indeed Extreme bends/trem use. Paul Gilbert uses the same tape method, BTW.

If you've had it happen, you know why... I've had it happen several times, and you don't notice untill you try and play on that string and wonder why it isn't there....

I should really do this, what kind of tape do they use?

To remind you whenever your string gets caught under the bobbin, to "konx" yourself on the head

The tape looks to me like medical tape, which is a thin pliable cloth tape that will stick well and will come off with little or no residue. It comes in white too!
