1. Sorry to burst your bubble, but Gibson never made a LP double neck.

If you saw a picture of one, it was custom built, but not by Gibson. You may be thinking of the SG double necks, but as far as I can remember, they never produced a gold version.

4. Unless you are a vintage collector, why not have it custom-made?

These guys can do a 6-12 doubleneck at a very reasonable price. You have to assemble it and accessorize it yourself. But you can get the width of neck you want and also get a neck radius and PU combination specific to your liking. Personally, I find mass-made necks to be too narrow and radii to not be flat enough for my taste.

...I was at Guitar Center today and saw a white "Don Felder Double Neck 6 & 12 "Hotel California Custom Model" SG."

7. You just got me thinking. What happened to Steve Hackett's 4/12?

 



I haven't seen him use a double-neck since he left Genesis.
