A Double-Neck That Splits in Two | Find of the Week

Like the old Doublemint jingle, this Ibanez double-neck truly has double the pleasure, double the fun.

Because, well… take a look. It's not simply a double-neck guitar (and a nice copy of a Gibson SG-style EDS-1275 at that) but actually two guitars, which can be split apart or kept attached as one.

1975 Black Ibanez 2402

This is an Ibanez 2402, built in 1975 during the height of the so-called lawsuit-era, when many Japanese manufacturers built numerous copies of famous American guitars, under a large variety of brand names.

The vast majority of Ibanez 2402s from this time are not splittable. They were built merely to be standard double-neck guitars, with two bridges, four pickups, and two necks attached to one solid body, with one standard Gibson-style set of volume and tone knobs.

But a very small number of 2402s were built like this special Find of the Week. It has two sets of volume and tone knobs—and two separate output jacks—because the body can be clasped together or pulled apart.
