The Twin's Twin Neck 6 and 12.

I was fortunate enough to be asked to exhibit at the 2016 Holy Grail Guitar Show in Berlin and I wanted to make something unusual to have on my table. I consulted with my Twin Geert who is one of the finest guitar players i know. You can see and hear him playing some of my guitars in the video section of the website. He suggested a twin neck acoustic guitar which would certainly be unusual. And this is it. 6 string and 12 string necks on a modified jumbo body. It's big. But then, so is my Twin. I had some spectacular high grown, Swiss, figured maple that I was saving for a special guitar so it's time had come.Top, back and sides all from the same board. Irish fiddleback sycamore was used for the bindings and neck and some Irish walnut stringers. The fingerboards and bridge were Rocklite. A lot of MOP celtic inlays for the fingerboard markings and the rosette. To bring out the figuring in the Swiss maple I finished the guitar in a midnight sunburst which, until then, I had only used in solid bodied guitars in the 80's and 90's. Making it caused me many headaches as I tried to get everything to fit in place and also work! There were lots of full sized scale drawings made and refined until I had a  viable design. This is the result and i think it works well in every department. It also sounds beautiful and my Twin has the playing skills to get the best from it.
