    When you're rich enough to have a 6 strings Dolphin Pro 1 doubleneck with a 4 strings fretless, custom pickups, pots wiring, woods and hardware....

    Strangely enough, when I played it very quickly before taking photos a month or so ago it was not completely unplayable :)

    The top neck is easily played, and the bottom neck is as well if your wrist will tolerate some serious bending... It is fantastically heavy though.

    And what about the curved body? each section has its curve (maybe a very stupid question) or a single curve for all that body? or flat?

    I always have my basses very low, so I won't have a problem playing a lower one.

    If I'll win the lottery I'll order a doubleneck Buzzard 4/8 string. :D

    Well, for most of us this CS forum is all about dreaming, isn't it? And you always need to have dreams!

    the double neck dolphin is actually the better design for a double neck.
    the odd shape doesnt loose its character and its pretty balanced in
    comparison.

    i recently worked on TM's double neck streamer with crazy pain
    and LEDS and the whole nine. 4 batteries for 2 Sets of LED's and
    2 preamps... plus one of the necks was cracked, and the other
    needed a mill on the frets.

    i was sore for days from working with it on the bench, but man
    that thing was such a cool bass, and sounded amazing.

    ive played a double neck dolphin that they have at warwick
    in the archives that was pretty sweet... canary yellow if remember
    correctly. it was almost 5 years and about 5,000 basses ago :lol:
