Double Trouble Progress Pics * Finished! *

Not a proper Progress Blog, but here's pics of Double Trouble along the way to completion.


An insane instrument for Sanddraggin (Matt). This is a guitar/bass combo with stereo output. The bass string has its own circuit with volume/tone/jack and a one string Stonehenge. The guitar circuit has volume/tone for both pickups (Stonehenge & DownUnder), a 3 way switch and it's own jack.

I fused two necks - figured maple for the 3 string guitar and a hardwood dowel for the bass. The guitar has a bodark (osage orange) fingerboard and the bass has bloodwood. The guitar and bass pickups are topped with the same woods and the knobs carry on the theme. The switch tip is zebra wood.

This was a really challenging build and it came out incredible.

Thats a bad ass build Ted. I clicked on the watch it on youtube and was still having audio problems. Them about a minute or so in the sound comes in. What are all the knobs for? m guessin you have piezos in the bridge too?

I played this at the California CBG get together this weekend. I know some people got some Video and hopefully will post it then I'll link it here. LJ no piezos on this one. Volume and tone for the guitar pups with a selector switch and volume and tone for the Bass Pup.
