Hedges plays Bach

Here's Michael Hedges again, this time playing the prelude to the first Bach cello suite, one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard (and one I played on classical guitar at my daughter Sara's baptism last year).

It's so sad that Michael talks about driving safely after the concert, given that he died in a car accident. Drive safely, folks.

Can you 'explain' that instrument Hedges is
playing? ... I see an extra set of (5?) strings,
and an extra sound hole (or whatever it's
called!) ... but I didn't see him touch the
extra strings at all, and they don't seem
to be anywhere near the hole, etc. ...

All of which puzzles me quite a bit. Any
clues (such as the instrument's name)
will be much appreciated.
