    Default Electric Acoustic Double Neck

    Im looking at getting a custom guitar made that would be part electric and part acoustic 12 string double neck. Im wondering how the bodies would be made together? Would the electric be thicker than usual? Im wondering if I could do it myself or if it would be very difficult to make. Im no expert luthier at guitar building either. I cant seem to find any pictures that show how one is electric solid and one is acoustic?

    The purple top double neck Ernie Ball guitar that Ed played is like you are describing except it had a 6-string bass with hollow body on top in place of the twelve string.

    Is there a particular reason you must have the hollow body 12 on top and a solid body electric on the bottom? I guess if you are trying to play one particular song like "Wanted Dead Or Alive" by Bon Jovi where you need to switch from acoustic 12 really quickly it makes sense, but that long way to go for one or two songs...typically this is the kind of instrument rock stars build and use for one song live because they can!

    Yeah, Im wanting it for Wanted Dead or Alive type stuff. Also just to have a 12 string acoustic. I play alot of stuff where I would need an acoustic on a stand with an electric on my back, so I thought may as well get both in one and have a really cool looking guitar!
