CUSTOM-MADE DOUBLE NECK FENDER STRATOCASTER:
Wire and modify and set up

    This guitar was put together from two Fender stratocasters by a very talented
    recording engineer at a studio that sometimes gives me their guitars to work on.  
    The owner is a very talented guitarist who hadn't had time to finish the project.  

    See below for the work that went into making this a very cool doubleneck guitar!
