Wow... I don't know that you can say it "Clearly" reads ESP, but now that you mention it, I can see it. You have Great Eyes.

Here is a picture of my soon to be double neck.

The story behind it is that I was board one day, so I thought that I would try building a double neck jem. I build guitars all the time. Here are a couple of my other babies.

You make some really nice guitars, perfectly chiseled stuff. Great :D
Where did you learn to do that? I mean, are there any schools that teach that stuff or is it more dad to son knowledge?

It's been all just me learning from my own mistakes. It's always fun though. I enjoy it. I've made a few now, mainly Ibanez type guitars. Jem bodies, necks, etc. I can't wait to get the double neck done. Maybe this week even. Anyway, thanks for the interest. Let me know if you ever need one.

Will it have a mirror finish like Steve's one?!

It'll be so f***ing cool 8)

I haven't seen Steve's before. Mine is going to white with pearl pickguard. I think it will look pretty sweet. I can do chrome finish now. I'll put some pics of it up on my site.

Thanks again.

They sound great.

I don't really play the one on the left much, but the one on the right is my ALL NIGHT STAGE GUITAR. I play it all night until I break a string or something, then my back up guitar is my Ibanez Jem 7v. The one on the left sounds just as good, but I don't like the frets on that old Jem555 neck.

Thanks for looking.

Yep it will be a smaller version of Steve's 3 necks one!

Here's a pic of His actual mirror double neck took by someone from the boards I think (I searched through my live pics and I didn't find it, I guess it wasn't part of the guitars for the European leg of RI:R) :roll:

That's not a chrome finish. That's an actual mirror acrylic bolted to the top of the guitar body. Cool effect, but here is a picture of a guitar that I actually did put a chrome finish on.
