The star of the Woodstock show...
October 31, 2012

For us, anyway - this guitar was the star at our table during the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers' Showcase.

It's Joe's new gig guitar, and we're all really, really pleased with it!

This is the first prototype of the Flyer Doubleneck.

At 6.2 lbs, it is astonishingly lightweight - and even more impressively, the balance is just about perfect.

No neck dive, and the same weight as many traditional single-neck acoustics!

 

If the guitar is going to be this light and this well balanced - "what the heck", it might as well have two necks, right?

 

Many players don't ever consider doubleneck guitars - mostly because they're usually heavy, unbalanced, and no fun to play.

This instrument makes a compelling case for doublenecks as useful, comfortable, and truly satisfying - it's a very playable guitar.

 

(And did we mention it weighs 6.2 lbs?  Really.)

 

This is really a good one - it may be Joe's favorite personal gigging guitar yet.
