It's been a long wait...
July 28, 2009

We've been quiet here for a couple of weeks, keeping very busy making instruments.

So, to compensate, we present...well, it's more than one guitar, for sure.

This is the second doubleneck 6/12, and the first to be fully completed and get past the 'prototype' stage.

There is a whole lot going on inside this guitar! Each neck has:
a pair of Fralin Split-Blade pickups
a piezo bridge
its own preamp
its own set of Volume, Blend, Pickup Selector, and Tone controls

As if that's not enough, there is also a built-in TriColor tuner with a fiber optic display, hidden in the 12-string bridge adjuster.

Weighing in at 9.8 lbs, this is the lightest and best-balanced doubleneck any of us has ever laid hands on. It also happens to sound incredible.

There is a lot of subtle design work that make this guitar much more playable than one would expect. The light weight and neck placement just make it really pleasant and comfortable.

We'll probably make some more.
