|No one can remember exactly how the
subject of double neck guitars came up. Perhaps it was at Karaoke Night at the
club...or during a dart outing...or during one of our numerous cookouts...or maybe that
Halloween Party... We do recall that it had something to do with "Stairway to
Heaven" and "2112".
Whatever the case, the specter of the doubleneck would not quit dogging the GuitarAttack Crew. What started out as a relatively simple, "Hey...let's build a guitar" turned into a colossal, "do you think this will work" project of epic proportions. While the project is just underway, this will keep the GuitarAttack Crew busy for a while.
Check out the photos below, and click on them for a full size
version (see them up close).
|Here is a nice family photo of the guilty
parties. On the left is Tom with his SG-style body. On the right is John with
his FM style body.
The stars are inlayed Aspen on Black Walnut. The stripes are red cedar and maple. Yes, the stripes go all the way through the body. Tom made the bodies, and it was his vision that turned out these masterpieces of ingenious woodworking.
The plan is to put maple necks on the guitars, with a 12 string on top and a 6 string on the bottom.
