New Doubleneck in Italy...
July 16, 2013
We never get tired of new Doublenecks, and this is in many ways the most complex one we've made yet!
This was custom-built for a client in Italy, who is thrilled with the result and already exploring the musical possibilities...
This instrument features a standard-tuned 6-string "lower' neck, paired with a 12-string Merlin "upper" neck. The shared E-E tunings let both necks resonate sympathetically with one another, creating an ethereal and ambient texture that really adds an extra dimension, even with simple playing.
Alongside all this acoustic complexity, this guitar also features a polyphonic pickup system with MIDI-ready output on the 6-string neck, and full MIDI patch control onboard.
We're really looking forward to seeing what the new owner will create with this inspiring musical tool...every Doubleneck has pulled new ideas and approaches from the players that have picked them up.
Here's a quick video from the shop, for a quick taste of what this guitar can do:
