Noel's J-200 question

What is that gold thing Noel has around his strings and the black thing in the center of the guitar. The black thing I thought had something to do with the pickups that were put in it. Anyway I want to know what this is and get it for my EJ-200

The "black thing" prevents feedback in live concert settings. You don't need it. And the gold thing he has around he strings? I don't know what you are talking about. The capo on the second fret perhaps? It isn't around the strings. It holds them down on the fret.

:lol: sorry I know what a capo is I was actually referring to the gold thing in the center of the guitar it looks like the strings go through it. Its a gold plate or something, it sits right above the hole of the guitar. I dont know how to put up a picture on this site or else I would show you.

Yeah the "gold thing" is the pick up and the black thing prevents feed back. I have the Epi Elite J200, it's so mucvh better than the EJ200, if you ever find one you can trust me it's well worth the 800 quid.

How did the pickup become the gold thing? It is white with silvery metal. I guess the writing on LR Baggs pickups is a coppery gold, but you can't see the writing in that video.

Also, does anybody know what model that is that Noel is playing? It is an Artist model, note the signature on the headstock, but I have no idea who the artist is. I guess technically it is a J-200, but that is just the base model. Note the different pickguard and, of course, the headstock as I've mentioned.
