double-neck 12/8 Shergold Modulator

double-neck shergold modulator

This is the double-neck Shergold Modulator inspired by Mike Rutherford's custom model. Of course it doesn't have its characteristic splitting/recombining system (if I understand well, Rutherford claimed Shergold's exclusivity for this innovation, and I don't think that there's been any other builder that made a similar guitar) but it has the typical 12-string guitar neck on top and an quite unusual 8-string bass neck (Rutherford has been Genesis's bassist and rhythm guitarist behind Anthony Phillips then Steve Hackett before becoming the front guitarist, that had him develop a special style requiring a special instrument), plus the Modulator long upper horn that makes it look much better than the single neck (what a long sentence, and all these brackets!) .

If you want to know more about Shergold guitars, you can have a look at the most exhaustive website about them or wait a few weeks to read GL Wilson 's '500 guitars' book!

  1. Gosh, That is my guitar that was made for me in 1982, I sold it about 4 years ago to a guy from Milan, Italy as he was a musician in a Genesis type band. The guitar was immaculate having been in its case for most of its life. Mike Marshall GB
