    Default Whoa! check out olpguitars.com

    I was just there and they have completley updated their site and it looks pretty good. They even updated it with the new floyd model and 12/6 guitar. I still cant believe they recessed the floyd!

    They should have left the floyd like eddies so it only goes one way, loads easier to change strings, floating trems are such a ballache! That doubleneck looks great though, if they made one of the necks a baritone instead of a 12 string, i'd almost break my arm grabbing my wallet so quick.

    I picked up one of the OLP doublenecks and had a Floyd put on the 6-string neck. I'm actually glad they put a 12 string on top instead of the bari; for me, the 12 string is a lot more useful.

    This is probably an odd question but, doesn't that toggle switch between the 12 string and the 6 string toward the bottom end of the guitar get in the way while your playing? It looks like your almost hitting it in that picture.
    Its all fun and games until someone pokes an eye out, then its just fun you can't see!

    No, the toggle switch doesn't get in my way...it's just the angle of the pic.

    Sorry, just went to Ed Roman's site...guess I should have taken my own advice before posting...

    Ed Roman is offering two mods of the OLP MM1; the first is replacing the stock pups with Seymour Duncan blackbacks for $449, and the second includes a Floyd and new Duncans for $649.

    I would assume that OLP's pricing will be comparable to Ed Roman's.

    Oh, hey there you are.
    I'm the guy you sent the CD to, right before this board got hacked.
    Just wanted to let you know that I got it, and have been listening to it a bit.
    Thanks much!

    You other guys reading this should check his stuff out.

    When you say baritone, what is that? Is that what ED had? I know it was a 6 string top neck on Ed's fantastic looking purple guitar and it did have a real deep tone. Was that what you call a baritone?

    A baritone is a guitar with a slightly longer neck ( i think ). it is designed specifically for downtuned strings to give you a real heavy bass like response. i'm pretty sure ed's was a baritone on top, let me know if i'm wrong. He got the idea after playing with a doubleneck Danelectro in the studio one day. It would have been so cool to be able to play spanked properly without spending Thousands, but there you go.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Pleasure_Dome,

    You're right, the upper neck on Ed's doubleneck was a baritone. Danelectro still makes a double neck in the same baritone/standard six string configuration as Ed's, though it looks like a typical Danelectro and not an Axis. The last one I saw was selling for ~$650 new at a music store.
