    Default Joe Maphis doubleneck

    Is that a guitar/mando he's picking?

    Here's John 5's version (more inspired by) as he rips on Fender mandostrat:

    It's an octave(high) guitar neck.

    Ahh, that explains why he switched to an acoustic mando and didn't play the other neck. Thanks John!

    Speaking of which, what is that acoustic f-hole mandolin he was playing? Anyone have a clue? Doesn't look familiar to me as a regular line from any maker.

    At first glance it reminded me of the fancier epiphone mandolins from the thirties, but I couldn't find anything to support the notion that it was. Cool little mandolin.

    Most teardrop-shaped D'Angelico mandolins I have seen were more in the proportion like Gibsons. This one looks kind of narrow and has rather thin f-holes and it looks like the sides have some sort of shading (you can see when he hands it back after playing it. Might be some sort of handmade instrument by a more obscure luthier. Other photos I have seen show JM playing a Gibson A-50.
