    Welcome Scott. Go to Advance search and search for double neck and the user Wokkaboy. Woks had a fairly comprehensive build thread for his double neck. Hes only an occasional lurker now due to work commitments, but you could probably PM him if you had any direct questions.
    Current:
    ES-5V

    Completed:
    Scratchie lapsteel
    Custom ST-1 12 String (to be converted to 6 string)
    JBA-4
    TL-1TB
    Scratch Lapsteel
    Meinl DIY Cajon
    Cigar Box lap steel

    Wishing:
    Baritone
    Scratchie 12 string
    Open D/Standard Double 6 twin neck

    Almost done with the thing... kit is great.. I had log on dramas so haven't been able to post anything.. But I have been through Woks build an read the advice from others... I could bung on pics I have taken along the way... there are no tutorials for the twin , so I have watched the LP- MB 1 videos and have the diagram for the SG-612, so just trying to take it slow.. no great solderer so I have a piece of cardboard with pots punched into it and 200 wires hanging off it labelled according to the diagram for the double neck build.. I think I got it... I need to ask about shielding... I got 3 sets from Pitbull... do I shield every cavity ?? And the long wires going up to the 3 way switch near the neck ? Is that going to get me radio USSR if I don't wrap it in copper? I have played for 40 years... my first build.. Its a Jimmy Page thing... maybe I should have started with a bongo drum... still ...I am a tradie.. been a cabinet maker... not an office jock...
