We got to grips with the Emerald Chimaera Artisan double-necked guitar

Behold the Emerald Chimaera Artisan – a stunning Irish double-necked guitar inspired by Richie Sambora

Double-neck electric guitars are a familiar sight these days, and down the years have been used in anger by a long list of players that includes Jimmy Page (famously, the six- and 12-string Gibson he used live for Stairway To Heaven), Alex Lifeson, Slash and even Elvis Presley. Acoustic double-necks, however, are significantly rarer, due to the huge tension exerted by the guitar strings – up to 160lbs, depending on gauges.
