Curiosity Question about Double Neck Basses

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Din Of Win, Jul 23, 2009.

  1. Hey TB,

    It's ouring outside and it's a slow day at work, so... I thought i'd ask a question of curiosity:

    Now, I doubt i'll ever have the need, money, or dextarity to ever own or even play a double neck, but for those that do; How do you split up the two basses?

    Different pick up arrangements?
    Different scale lengths?
    Different strings?

    Again, I'm just curious. I must admit it IS impressive to see a doubleneck bass guitar... I just want more info on the necessity of them both!

    I've seen so many different types of double necks. Fretted/fretless, 4/5 string, 5 fretted/4 frettless, 4 string/8 string octave. It's what ever is wanted or needed.

    I can see the need for it.
    One maple board and the other rosewood board.
    Best of both worlds!
  5. Ah right on.

    Ugh, i can't believe i forgot different # of strings on each neck :scowl:

    eq both necks differently using the tone knob also select different pick up on both neck and lastly switch your playing between the fretted and fretless neck.
