Double Neck CBGs ~ poseur flash or practicality???
What do you think?
Keep in mind that Shane Speal set up the Cigar Box Nation with the motto: No rules.
But most of us have personal rules, preferences, beliefs, etc.
One of mine was or is that double neck gits are too fancy or show offy – at least for my own self.
But are they practical if a person plays two tunings like I do? Turns out for performance, open mike, etc. – it’s seamless to change tunings without changing gits.
How is the playability? This one is pretty good. I don’t bump or get hindered by the neck not in use. These 2 necks are just under 3 inches (7cm) apart. Works well.
One piezo electrifys both. Piezo about dead center in the box.
Appearance: I cannibalized 2 gits to make the double. I like the necks looking different and different lengths and I like that they are mildly relic’d. The box does not look quite right with the necks. Suggestions?
