    I wonder if this double neck Elvis is playing was his? Is it still around? Who owns it today? How much is it worth?

    One other question - It that a baritone along with a 6 string? The one Denny Lane played in Wings was a 12 & 6 string version. I didn't know they made one with a baritone.

    Not a 12 string lover....but a big fan of TVL...and as far as double necks, this one is as cool as they come....Still jealous of @Sid Nitzerglobin Sid's TVL Jazzy;)

    IMG_1067.jpg IMG_0015.JPG IMG_1706.jpg IMG_1094.jpg Well @Jena , you must be a girl after my own heart ...;) I was just thinking this morning of the 6120 / 6-12 that @Ricochet posted above . Would love to have one ....
    I'm a 12 string freak myself . It started when I stole a Guild 12 string from my sister back around 1980 for $200 . I sold that about 5-6 years ago . It can be viewed at www.ironhorseinstruments.com Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on " at the shop " . Sold the Guild to buy a Gretsch G5422 ( the Black one ) Sold that and was 12-less for a while . Shopped around and almost bought a D'Angelico XL-Fulton ( great bang for the buck , that's the one I played at their NYC Showroom ) but deep down I knew I wanted the Martin so I bought the Martin D12-28 at the factory ( still have , it was a small fortune ) . Just a few months ago I bought the G5422-12G FSR and love it ( the blonde ) Enjoy the photos ....... IMG_1067.jpg IMG_0015.JPG IMG_1706.jpg IMG_1094.jpg

    I wanted a 12 string in my youth until I was at the music store trying to tune one up..

    My other guitar is a Ric 330-12 (the one in my avatar) and convinced me of the necessity of a tuner.
