    I'd let Malmsteen go at it, drop my end, and pick up that 10 string lefty in the background. And I would not restring it righty.

    I was thinkin' the same thing. Also, what about the one in the background, I think it's got like 23 strings!

    The case was custom made for it. It's not much larger than any hardshell double neck case other than that it was a flight case, so it's much heavier duty, thicker, and with extra padding.

    The guitar is really two instruments in one. Each half has a stainless steel rod embedded in it that aligns with a corresponding hole on the opposing half. This keeps them lined up nice and solid. They lock together with a recessed, heavy duty, butterfly latch on the back.

    When separated, they fit into the case with headstocks pointing in opposite directions. Nice and compact. :yesway:

    That one was built quite a while ago, so forgive me for not having specs handy.

    I remember this, it was actually made for Sonny Lombardozi, who is apparently the only other peoson in the world who can pull off the MAB playing.

    I think that's a stretch at best. Only other person crazy enough to play that double-neck arrangement maybe. There's plenty of examples of guitarists tapping on two guitars with the second one set up on a stand... and when you think about it, it's really no different than Stick playing aside from the arrangement of the strings (and the weight :lol:).

    That said, holy hell! I like the way the body's set up to split in two for transport, great idea there. Wonder if the MAB double/quad-necks are set up the same way?
