    heh i think it's a bit of both. let's face it, to be ingenious in rock you've got to be pompous. it's rock.

    Why..to look cool of course! :)

    The first time I saw Rush was on the "Moving Pictures" tour in '81. Geddy Lee used a guitar bass double neck on "Passage To Bankok". DUring the guitar solo, he switched from bass to rhythm guitar and played the bass line with tarus pedals at his feet. Very musical and cool.

    During Xanadu, Geddy and guitarist Alex Lifeson were both playing double necks. I wasn't clear why Geddy needed a double neck on this song, but it looked really cool!

    On Rush's 2005 tour they resurected Xanadu. Geddy stuck with a 4 stringer and it sounded just as awesome!

    I would love to get a double neck, but I question the praticality. I look at what I lug to my gigs now and that would be too much headache for not enought benefit

    Again during Alex's solo. He switched over to the 12 string and played the bass line on the Moog Taurus pedals.

    has any one seen an 8 string (octave) bass with a 12 string guitar? i'm thinking about getting an 8 string bass neck for this one. Will the P/J pickups pickup the 8 string evenly?
