    the book on Ferrington guitars from 92-ish has some great shots of the guitar. I think it's got a mix of Duncan minis and toaster top Ric pickups.

    Nice - I figured Duesenberg. I also couldnt tell what the double neck was. Knew I could find out here though. I felt better knowing that you guys were all also trying to see what he was playing.

    That Duesenberg was sexy. The photos on the duesenbergusa.com site don't do it justice. I'm refinishing and restoring a 63 Silvertone/Harmony single cutaway, and I've been wondering what color to paint it. Blue with stripes may be the winner.

    HMMM...I'm kind of stupid with computers. Couldn't get past the color thing.

    Was it a 6/12? Thought it was 6/6.

    You have to follow the small guitars with your mouse and click on them...kind of goofy.

    Anyway, here's the guitar. Looks like a P-90 and a Ric toaster top for the 12, and a Duncan mini for the 6. Are those Badass bridges? And you can clearly see the Ric-style slotted headstock on the top neck, so yes, it is a 12/6.

    Although I agree with this assessment of the picture from the website, I am pretty sure that the guitar had 2 mini buckers in the top during the show.

    The second set of strings are "slotted in" like a Rickenbacher. Look closely ... I had to! ;)

    You are correct, sir. At the 1:10 mark of this clip, you can see the two minibuckers:

    The pix at Bostonguitar do a bit better job of showing the Duesenberg
    which is actually Lake Placid metallic blue.
