    Looks like it would cost a small fortune to restring and weigh a ton. Sure looks beautiful though.

    Just Wow. I have NEVER seen an eight-string as part of a double-neck before. I'll take it! Too bad I'm in Texas.

    Looks kinda cool, I always liked Strat body basses, but the weight would wear on me.

    The weight would wear on you so you wouldn't wear the weight on you? :D

    Hang on, I need to check my tuning before the next song. Someone in the back of the room sneezed.

    Wow... I’m usually not a fan of double necks, generally finding them more amusing than awe inspiring or practical looking.

    This one however, is a bit different... I actually really like the idea of an 8 & 12 string (my back is cursing me at just the thought, and I don’t mind weight on basses), I can see that tandem laying down some lush & unique sounds.

    Im even digging the appearance... the design isn’t as in your face and tacky as many double’s.... pretty classic design, simple, and really like the muted color scheme. I think there is something about the different color pickup covers that helps to subtlety differentiate each “instrument” while not dramatically halving it.

    I dig it, very well executed.
