Highly ingenious Telecaster guitar and mandolin doubleneck

For the Telecaster player who doubles on mandolin (why do I think this person might be a country player?) here's a very ingenious solution to the age-old problem of cumbersome and back-breakingly heavy doubleneck guitars. This particular Tele guitar and mandolin doubleneck custom-built by Stuart Palmer, cleverly utilises the existing Telecaster body and neatly accommodates the mandolin neck into the upper bout so that the actual guitar body is no bigger than that of a regular Telecaster.

Currently listed on eBay UK with a Buy It Now price of £850.

  1. I love how he used the fender 12-string headstock for the mandolin. brilliant little nod.

  2. I saw this on some ebay meandering as well... very impressive job and cool too...

    However you can go a DIY route if you can't afford this one... I found this kit on eBay too... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Electric-Guitar-and-Mandolin-DIY-Kit-Project-Double-Body-Neck-Combo-Unfinished-/390866420565?pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Sting_Instruments&hash=item5b01744355
