Ok, what's the deal with the Epiphone doublenecks that are out right now? I was playing it earlier today at Guitar Center and it has like no access to the higher frets on the 6 string. Pretty much the whole point of getting that guitar is to play Stairway and there is no way you can do the last bit of the solo and that's one of the most dramatic parts of the song! Is it just the Alpine white version or did they change the entire design? I don't recall the ones they made a few years ago being that way. Either way that's a gross oversight on Epiphone's part, I'm tempted to write a letter, I just don't understand the world anymore.

I played one the other day, the guitar shop let my guitarist borrow it for a show we had. I found it to actually be very very comfortable and fret access didn't seem to be an issue at all...
Oh and you can use to play Hotel California too, but it's pretty much useless for anything else.

Or you can be inventive and learn how to use it innovatively.

Anyway, I don't see how the fret access can really be any different than on a normal sg. The neck binding and cutout is the same there is just another neck above it.

The necks join the body at about the 16th fret, unlike the SG.

You can play it all the way up the neck, it just takes some maneuvering.

Or you could put in a guitar hero neck and midi, or oscillator or whatever it is.

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?


I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.

Well, if they can do it, you can. I doubt Epiphone change where the neck joins if it was better in the first place.

I don't think it looks that bad, all you'd need is a little stretching.
