    I'm sure that many owners of double neck guitars get the idea of a chainsaw the morning after a gig when they can't get out of bed due to back pain!

    I have one of these and they seem to be far heavier than a pair of DC59s - there is a fairly substantial wood block in the middle of the body

    Good fun though

    Thank you all!
    That gives me other options to look into,I guess its really for writing purposes which I forgot to mention Ill test drive some of the pedals and see if that will fit into the mix.

    Used, used, used. I’ve owned three - Danelectro was nice and the lightest; epiphone was nicer, but much heavier; Carvin was the nicest by far and the heaviest by far. Unless you are young and strong, none were good for more than a couple of songs.

    There’s a nice one on Reverb right now. They are asking $1,400 but it’s been for sale forever and they probably are ready to deal. It also comes with a case, which isn’t cheap for a double neck.

    Came here to post this. Played one at my local Music Go Round and was impressed with the weight and comfort.

    A Variax when they still sold a down town version with the same electronics I bought one
    honestly it does national steel body resophonic real well. I used to have a national and the variax gets really well that's why I bought it.

    I should have bought the Guild Crossroads when I could have gotten it for about $900 but it was so top-heavy it was difficult to play, I had to use most of my left arm strength just to hold the darn thing up. Would have been a great investment though...

    I would take a look at a danelectro. I would like to have one, myself.
