You guys know me by this time, I Love using tins for my builds and this one is no exception.

It took a week to build, 2 days of gluing and clamping (had a couple of other necks to put together and I run out of clamps to do it in one day), a rain day where I just soldered the electrics in my cramped garage and another day to assemble. Plus a small amount of swearing, bleeding and verbal abuse. standard build procedure.

It features a 34 scale diddley bass neck with an A string and a 25.5 scale 3 string neck tuned to Open G using the ADG strings from a set of 10's. The electrics are a pair of 25mm Piezos under the bass string and an old Strat single coil under the 3 stringer, both wired into there own jacks for separate amping.

This a definite improvement over my previous double neck, which was smaller and a little more basic and serves as the baby version of my personal double neck.

What you guys think.

Pretty cool JP! I like how you did your 3-string headstock, haven't seen that before.

Thank you Korrigan, the headstock is a result of necessity, the wood for the neck is too thick to get the standard machine heads through, so I use a separate thinner piece is usually required and I know the pics don't show it, but it allows for an easy angled headstock.

What kind of bracing you got going on in there? I woulda helped you empty that, fruit & nut is one o’ my favs :)

Hi, that looks good.

Question: how do you strum when you have both hands on the necks?

That's a good way to use a six string set of tuners, three one side and on the next build three on the other side.

Taff, when I play a double neck, I wild strum, it hits all the strings, mutes the bass string and my free hand is for the slide. Its not just the tuners, the strings as well, I buy standard packs of 6 and just divide them up, the other 3 strings and tuners are already earmarked for a chugger and a diddley bow.

the bracing is rather simple, I glued and screwed the neck to separate length of pine, which also serves as a nice little heel, which goes through the full length of the tin and is screwed down with the hinge tailpieces. And I love the fruit and nut inside these tins as well, I've got 7 in total, all emptied myself.
