George Harrison's Gibson SG?

Does anyone know what that giant V shaped cover looking thingy on George's SG near the bridge is? I was told it was the whammy bar but Im second guessing. I never saw it on any other SG http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_e3DA-Uctvw

if you look at 0:17, u can see the piece I'm talking about right under his right arm. And since I'm on the subject, is it a custom piece and where could I get one?

    Yes it's a tremolo bar housing only the bar isn't on it. That's only the second video of George Harrison playing an SG that I've seen The first one is in a video featuring the song Hey Bulldog. Here's a wikipedia link to show the SG with the tremelo bar.
