I think it is tube preamp he uses to allow his signal to see the tube before his solid state or digital gear. This gives him a good tubey feeling to his amp/gear. The buffer onboard the guitar would help with the signal loss from the guitar to the SGBB.
So I think the answer is Yes, he would still need both.
