Dancing on Ashes (Kalifornia)



Don't only draw or build guitars, I play some also, though not often in conventional ways - that would be for example to play songs in front of an audience ; not that I have anything against this, I did it and plan to do it again, but I'm busy with other things for the moment... Anyway, here I am playing a brand new Ibanez Talman acoustic guitar and singing with my partner, for a video currently exhibited in a show I have in Stuttgart, about which you can know more here.

Ladie and Gentlemen, the Doppelcaster!



Here it is, the Doppelcaster is born (and I must say that I'm quite proud of myself)! 

The lower neck is stringed in Nashville tuning (you can buy the set from D'Addario), the upper one is supposed to be replaced by a baritone one as soon as I've saved enough money to buy one. There are two outputs, so I can play each neck with its own effects... Better pictures will come soon, and a demo once I figured out what to do with a double neck guitar... I feel like playing like John McLaughlin but I'm not able to, so I have to find my own way...


You can also noticed that I'm extremely bad at soldering, but after a lot of sweat and some help from Seymour Duncan's wiring diagrams, I managed to do the job - and it works...
