Further to yesterday's blog post concerning the identity of a guitar being used by a guy in Chet Atkins' band, I'd like to thank all of you who left comments, both here and on our Facebook page, to the effect that the guitar was a Stratosphere.
A few of you even linked to an earlier post here on Guitarz in which we had already looked at a Stratosphere doubleneck guitar. What can I say? I guess I can't remember everything. (I did think it looked familiar, if that helps).
The one curious thing is that the body does rather look as if it had been designed for one of Stratosphere doubleneck guitars (of which they made several). Check out this video to see and hear this guitar in action - there's a nice close-up shot 48 seconds in.
