What are those mini toggles switches on vai's white evo?

On satch's site....i watched the G3 welcome video with satch, vai, malmsteen.
when they were showing clips of vai doing his "tongue on the string" thing......i could see some mini toggle switches by the tone knob........

what is this, and what does it do? Is that his secret to making a note sustain forever?

Well its not on evo, but on the guitar flo. In fact it is his secret to infinite sustain, and is called the fernandes sustainer. The two switches are the on off and harmonic mode switches for the sustainer system

ya basically vai's tongue trick is bull :) but wtf, why are we here, he's a showmen. I just want to yell at people who don't catch on to his tricks. it doesn't change though who he is, and he's a master of the guitar.

ha, in fact, my way of doing it was harder and i knew ther was an easier way, but i don't have his set up. oh well :lol:
