Yeah yeah, the new Genesis collection is nice, and the 8 strings are 1 string more then seven, but lordy, a Mikro Doubleneck-now Hoshinos cooking with gas!
The specs:
16 Strings of heart-pounding madness, muddy lows and screeching highs from the powerful sounding aptly titled Powersound pickups, multi-piece basswood body attached to two(count 'em) finger spraining 24 fret necks.

The good part:probably lightweight and 'somewhat' functional as far as double necks go
The weird part: We're both considering calling the South American Hoshino rep to...'inquire'
The bad: After a life of hard partying and strippers-this is how I spend my saturday nights. Hard to believe it ever got tiring.

I'll let you know when it arrives.

Im amazed your still reading this.

Ha ha! :D Never seen that solution for the cutaways between the necks before. :) Good editing skills, and a great idea... Sort of... ;)

yes, that was a test you passed. 6+12 is definitely not 16. Ok, maybe I still party, or maybe the stripper got in the way of the screen

btw, there was some close up pics, and being that it has the 12 string neck it was either a promotional 1 off piece or some talented luthier on a shoestring budget actually made it.

More necks and strings doesnt make it any less of a Gio. If anything, it makes it even MORE of a Gio. Now you have 2 uncomfortable necks, 48 crappy frets, a heavier body with no resonance and 18 strings that won't stay in tune.

Yeah, the ball end gets fed right beside each of the six screws at the back of the bridge. Probably a b*tch to tune up plus Gios aren't known for their tuners. prob a 1 off. Although not this one, maybe a gilbert or Vai double in the future, what better way to spend money and time? Maybe that'll be Ibanez's slogan next year haha
