Ok so for for some of you who may have seen my Rick 330/12 build, well I scrapped it and started over.

And heres what I started over with!



First off can anybody obviously notice where the pieces of maple were glued together? So yeah I got this piece from a lumber yard in Pierce City MO, and it was really a nice deal, 22$ for 2 pieces that size (Which I now realize was way more than I needed). I'm trying to make as many things as I can, with the exceptions of all the electronics, with another exception of the built in pedals, which I'll explain a little later. To kind of explain the markings on the wood, the obvious is the obvious, the line inside the body shape is where the hollowing shall occur, the f-hole design is ENTIRELY MINE, steal it and I'll kill you . The switch between the two guitars is to switch effects. The built in effects are gonna be a TR-2 and BD-2. Also does anybody know if I should build it or buy it? I'm lazy, but I do want to kind of test my skills. Thats pretty much it for now, more pics later.

Wow so many responses, well lets get started with some more.

how do u make a hollow body with that ? do u just route channels or soemthing? thats how i saw it on warmoth


You route 2 individuals pieces and glue them together, and I should have said Semi-hollow but eh who really cares?

Won't that be heavy as all ****?


Not really, if you think about a double neck is two guitars with a little less weight, so making it a semi-hollow will make it lighter.

Pull this off and you will be my hero.
12-string and 6-string I'm guessing?
Give us all the specs.


Yes 12 string on the left, 6 on the right. I'm still workin on the specs but almost finished!

Its width is shorter than most double necks, because of the necks being so close together, but I had to do that to fit it on there!

I'll give you all a few specs to keep you going.

Guitar 1 - 12-string
22 frets, SSS pup config., 1 volume and 1 tone knob, 5 way pup selector, Rick style head stock, well the idea not the shape. Haven't decided on a bridge yet, still lookin around, any recommendations would help.

Guitar 2 - 6-string
24 frets, HH pup config., 1 volume and 1 tone knob, 3 way pup selector, Not sure on a headstock design yet. Tailpiece is a Bigsby B70, don't criticize, I've seen alot of flamin of Bigsbys lately.

Not sure about scales yet, what should I do 24 3/4 or 25 1/2?

EDIT-Forgot to say this is also an ARCHTOP so now it's a Double Neck Hollowbody Archtop with Built-In Effects Build

reminds me of Callum Burrows double neck build. his thread's been around for about 3 years and he still hasn't finished it, lets see if you can beat him


Yeah but I thought his name was Calum? Even if I do beat his guitar, his is so much nicer.

I really like the F hole design you did. Probably the best I've seen.

Just a few things I'm extremely curious about. A. Built in effects? In the guitar? That's freaking sick, but how is this going to work? Like, are you going to put a pedal in your guitar, or what? B. Isn't it going to be extremely heavy? But seriously, pull it off, and I will consider you a guitar building god.

Can someone explain to me what is this sub genre of fag metal? I have never heard it before.

A. The effects are going to be drilled in to a piece of wood and the piece of wood will be glued to actual body. I'm going to put a cover over them so if some break I can just open it up take em out and put em back in. They're each going to have an On-Off switch between the two guitars for 4 possibilities of effects.

B. Well since it's a hollowbody weight really shouldn't be a problem, and thats kind of the only way to do this, unless you want to route out half you guitar.
