Hey guys, i just came across this http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220597449968&rvr_id=133315453313&crlp=1_263602_263622&UA=WVF%3F&GUID=165ac9f712a0a02692f55265fffb8c7a&itemid=220597449968&ff4=263602_263622
In my new side project deal, i play lead guitar and bass on recordings, and since we dont has bassist, i figured i could play both using this, but i dont know if its a feasible thing to do. Help?

All the parts are seperate, and are quite easy to play

Not on that- it's 2 guitars, on 6 and one 12 string. If it were to have 2 outputs you could run one through a downtuner into a bass amp, but that's not very feasible.

Not to sound like a dick, but why not get a bassist?

Would you run down past the fence?

You must be confused friend. It's a double neck electric guitar, no bass. it's beautiful though. =) I'd get it just to have it.

Some TOM on the guitar half.

It doesn't look bad, but I don't recognize the brand or headstock. And again, why not just get a dedicated bass player? <_<

Well, Geddy Lee used to play a doubleneck Rickenbacker 4-string bass / 12-string guitar, so it certainly can be done. But these doubleneck instruments were designed to facilitate live playing, so you don't need it for your recordings. Just multitrack it.

If you are interested in a bass/guitar doubleneck project, Warmoth offers a bass/guitar doubleneck body so you can build your own. I've thought about it from time to time:

Yeah, you could do it for live stuff - particularly if you are going to be playing bass primarily. Just remember a few things:

1.) That bass/guitar doubleneck is probably going to be a back-breaker (Maybe someone could convince Parker Guitars to build one?).

2.) You will need two amplifier rigs - one for bass and one for guitar (Here's hoping you don't drive a Mini Cooper).

3.) Assuming each instrument is wired to a separate output jack so that you don't have to flip a switch to change between them, you will have to play only with two separate guitar leads. Wireless would be out of the question, as hooking two wireless transmitters to your guitar strap would probably not work very well.

On the bright side, probably no one in the audience will have ever seen such an instrument. They'll be blown away by it and they'll all be talking about you the next day.

For darn sure! You would look cool holding that thing

If it only has one output, that's fine. You'll just need an A/B box to switch between amps. If you don't want to lug around a bass amp you can hook up that side of the switch to a DI box and play right into the house PA. The A/B box would work just as well from wireless, too; you'll just have to remember to be near that stomp when you want to switch.
