Nah. A guy on the megadeth forums took two of these Douglas Fulcrum Black at HomeOld

and bolted them together to make a double neck 6 string/10 string V

It looked pretty sweet. He took em down to the bare wood and tung oiled them and it was ****ing cool looking.

Cherry red! And you have to show us the finished choice when you get the finances sorted. Sweet.

I'd avoid the danelectro tbh. The bodies are made of masonite and plywood...

Fender make a Stratocaster XII though, and if anyone knows 12 string electric jangle its gonna be them.
.:: Fender®.com ::.



And schecter make the stargazer 12 and SCH12 (The SCH12 is semi hollow btw, it'd be my choice if I were going for a 12 electric. Semi hollow electrics sound SWEET and 12 strings are awesome...combine the 2 and I'm guassing things get wicked.)

Schecter Stargazer 12-String Electric Guitar - arbiter.co.uk
Acclaim Sound & Lighting*::*Musical Instruments*::*Guitars - Electric 7 String+ Left Hand*::*Schecter SCH12 12 String Electric Guitar

(I'd link to their normal website, but my computer won't access it for some reason. Google schecter guitar research)


Just, imo, danelectro aren't going to be the best guitars for the money...they have a lot of kitsch value, but at the end of the day, they're still made of plywood, and the pickups still can't be adjusted for different heights

You're going to Pyramid? I am so, so jealous. I almost, ALMOST got tickets but then a work commitment over the summer stopped me. Gah! *more jealousy*

Haha yeah Im going with a big group of friends, should be sweet
I missed out on meredith and golden plains though and there is no way i can afford nevereverland and BDo tickets as well.



TO guitarbizzare
I have a bit of an affinity for ****ty guitars that have loads of eccentricities....and strat styles make me want to die.
But thanks for the heads up anyway!!!!!
