      This is like a fucked up conjoined twin that they should have put down at birth.

            That's one of the iconic Jacksons. I wouldn't buy it, but the handful of those they made have always sold for huge prices. This one's rock star-owned, to boot.

            The conjoined headstocks are a problem in terms of keeping the necks properly adjusted, and later Jackson doublenecks didn't have that.

                    Nice, but that's not a golden age Jackson. Sucks that it has no inlays and a recessed trem. For me, a perfect Soloist has sharkies and an angled neck/non-recessed trem. Binding-over-frets should also be part of the deal if you want to get real with it.

                    Here's a much more interesting Jackson doubleneck:

                      We are very different people.

                        Yes he could. I saw him a couple of times - he was odd to watch, since the body motions didn't seem to match what came out, but he just tore your head off.

                          Man, I always wanted one of those Siamese soloists in the worst way, but they go for psycho money.

                            Trems should always be recessed and no inlays looks awesome. Shark inlays are ok but a bit passé IMO. I personally prefer the offset dots on many of the Ibanez guitars, or even better the way Schecter does it on some guitars with the offset dots under the bass strings up to the 12th fret, and then the dots shift to be behind the treble strings past the 12th fret.

                                Shark inlays are the best inlays of all time.

                                  One thing that has always bugged me about the Jackson headstocks are the angle....it's always looked wrong to me because how angled it is. Especially on 7s. I do like the guitars though. That double neck is ugly though.

                                    According to The Original Charvel Gang, it's Amir's fault.

                                              I've grown rather fond of double necks of late, but the Jackson Soloists with the Siamese headstocks just look wrong to me. That includes Adrian Smith's pink one.

                                              I'm still on the hunt for a 540STN, which are rare as hen's teeth. Being a saber shape, at least it may not be heavy enough for me to call Compo immediately I panic about back issues like every other double neck ever.

                                                Not being a stage performer (and probably not needing a 12-string if I ever did), doublenecks are pretty useless to me, but I always though Carvin had the coolest one. I'll admit that every time one of these comes up for sale, my left-click finger gets a little itchy...




                                                All-maple and heavy AF, for sure.

                                                  Ibanez is the company that made the OG Bulb djent guitar.
