What kind of paper is this that he uses at the back of his guitars to stop the noise from the springs? is it normal toilet tissue or some kind of napkin paper? what is it? I really need it for one of my guitars

It's probaly just regular tissue, Kleenex or so. That works perfectly!! Just use that. I bet Steve uses it too!! :wink:

No, not foam rubber, it's some kind of paper. At Steves EVO part of the Machines site he said it was paper. Anyway I bought Kleenex and it worked so awsome, it cut down the noise really much. Thanks for the help.

I thought it looked like a grip of kleenex from a long & flat kleenex box. Although I have no expertise in the area of maxi pads.

There is a another variation, and that is to take a sponge and cut it into strips. You stuff these strips inside the springs.
Looks alot cleaner...
