Just 10 lbs....but no lightweight!
October 11, 2010
Here it is - our latest doubleneck! These things just get more and more fun to build.
This one gets back to basics with a very simple and straightforward electronics package:
This setup permits a huge amount of flexibility with minimal "fuss" and very few knobs.
This instrument also debuts our newest headpiece concept. Using the latest and lightest tuning machines ever produced by Gotoh (the incredible "Stealth" tuners, weighing in at a mere 12 grams each!), this open-face headpiece design is essentially the lightest and most minimal thing we could design. The results: a doubleneck that balances better than most standard guitars, super-easy tuning thanks to the rear-facing handles, and a very clean, modern, and appealing look (if we may say so ourselves!).
A heavily chambered body and careful choice of hardware get this beautifully balanced guitar in under the 10 lb. mark - lighter than many classic electrics, and astonishingly light weight for a doubleneck!
Not just that - it balances perfectly. Really.
Coupled with the radiused top and 'rotated' neck geometry, this is, in our modest opinion, the most playable and practical doubleneck guitar we've ever picked up.
