I'm lovin' this double neck stuff around here as of late. Very interesting to see the bass double neck...with the bass neck on the bottom for the young lady on the album cover, and the bass neck on top in Mosriteforever's picture.

If anybody is interested in purchasing the least practical and perhaps ugliest Mosrite doubleneck, it showed up on craigslist this morning. Have at it!

Hot dog, if I had the dough I'd buy that mongrel and make an honest bass and XII out of it...

what a Frankenstein! Bass and a 12 string...I don't know Mel. Occupies a fairly unique position in a band :roll:

Still think my double neck standard/baritone would be much more useful to playing retro style surf and garage. Imagine those rich bari-chords and riffs (Twin Peaks meets Jack Nitsche meets Duane Eddy)supplimented by leads played on the standard neck. For some reason, this really appeals to me.
Anyway, bring on the double necks!! :D

Notice anything unusual about the pickups on Larry Collins double neck? These appear to be P90s. Look at the two extra screws between the poll screws, plus check the width of string spacing. Did Larry opt for Gibson type P90s on this guitar?

I hope this doesn't double post. I did this same thing a few minutes ago and nothing happened.

According to Larry Collins, the pickups on his guitar at present are the Hallmark AP-6 colones. I think Bob Shade could confirm.

Yep, Carvin pickups having the mounting screws in between the E and A and the B and E strings. P-90's have their mounting screws between the A and D and the G and B.

Deke had posted:
This guitar was discussed earlier on the list, but here's a photo of Joe Maphis' 2nd doubleneck, circa 1972, as it exists now in the Kern County Museum, Bakersfield, CA. This is the guitar that Semie built for Joe after Joe donated the original to the Country Music Hall Of Fame in Nashville. The push button in the middle of the pickguard is some kind of booster switch for when Joe went to play a solo and wanted the volume a little higher.
