What We Think

Weight 12.9 Lbs

Condition: Used, Excellent

The Yin and Yang nature of a neck meant for shredding and a 12-string neck sharing the same guitar body is what makes this Dean USA Custom Shop ML Double Neck one of the most captivating and unique guitars I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing. Both necks feature an extremely comfortable V-Shaped neck. The 6-string features a Floyd Rose locking tremolo system (tremolo arm included), making it a monstrous shred machine. 

The 12-string neck allows for harmonically lush chord progressions and melody lines, meaning that this guitar provides a player with two unique artistic palettes in a single body.

Speaking of the body, this guitar is surprisingly light and comfortable for a double-neck, meaning that any player can take it out on a gig without worrying about being fatigued.
