    Default Tennessee Double Neck

    Does anyone know anything about a Tennessee double neck? Itís half harp and half mandolin. Acoustic/electric. I canít seem to find any info online.

    I have a photo but canít seem to figure out how to attach it to this thread.

    I agree with Jim, but if I saw it in a local shop Iíd want to play it. Where is it and whatís the asking price?

    My impression is that the bass/harp strings are too thin to be useful. (assuming it is to be played like a harp guitar.....)

    Then again, how is it braced?

    It’s actually a lot of fun to play. There were instructions in the case that said there was some work done on it such as adding 2 strap buttons, set up action, work on bridge and nut and placing the bridge location. I’m not really sure what it’s worth since I can’t find any info on it. I initially listed it on OfferUp for $300. Is that like crazy out of bounds for something like this?

    I don’t have a ton of experience with it but I’ve found it sounds pretty nice to finger pick the harp stings intermixed with the mandolin.
