    Not bad, that's 6 lbs pre neck/guitar. Interesting cut always. I wonder what it would look like with a second cut away for the bottom neck.

    Probably a prop from the Spinout movie he shot in 1966.

    I don't think Elvis cared too much about a solid body guitar enough to call it his, however, he is in alot of pictures with that thing and if it was for sale with solid proof that it's the one then the price would be STUPID!

    Thanks, thought so. Was just about to go through my Graceland pics to check. I was there in March, very cool experience.

    Never owned a double neck. Thought of buying one more than once, and of course wish I had. The double SGs are now crazy expensive, had a few opportunities to pick them up relatively cheap in the past.

    Got my first 12 last year, this gorgeous Guild F 412. Maple back and sides. Just restrung it a couple days ago. What a sound!

    Been jonesing for a Rick 360 12, it will probably happen this year or next.

    I was too young to notice that guitar when I saw that movie back in the 60's.
    It sure is cool. 1958 was a great year for Gibson. They were the first to make a double neck guitar that year - way ahead of it's time. It was also the year they first made my favorite guitar - the ES 335. It's the only guitar that Gibson has made non-stop since the 50's.

    Paul Bigsby did it in 1952:

    And if you count acoustics, you can go way back.

    But if your point was first production electric double neck, that may be right.

    Yeah that was my point. These photos are pretty cool. Like everything else that's been invented there has always been several people working on the same idea at the same time. Gibson was just the first to release a production model.
    Paul Bigsby had tons of cool ideas but I never really cared for the looks of his guitars.
