The open center of the headpieces gives them a unique and striking look, and reduces weight by using minimal wood to support the Gotoh "Stealth" tuners
The Doubleneck guitar from Veillette Guitars benefits from unique new neck geometry which allows the twin necks to be positioned closer to each other, and is said to weigh in lighter than some single neck models
When strumming or picking on the 12-string, the player's hand doesn't come into contact with the other neck's strings but should move around in the air above it
The Doubleneck is said to offer players a very comfortable experience
The standard hardware includes TonePros bridges, an extra-light aluminum 6-string tailpiece and dual magnetic pickups for each neck
Probably the most famous example of a twin neck guitar is the Siamese SG used by the likes of Jimmy Page and Don Felder – the Gibson EDS-1275. With its new Doubleneck guitar, Veillette Guitars has managed to narrow the gap between the two necks in a lightweight package to offer a more comfortable experience for the player. Angular bridges also mean that the guitarist can pick hard or strum wildly on the upper 12-string section without fear of accidentally encroaching on the 6-string's domain.
