*blinks in disbelief*

To do 400 miles in 3 hours, you'd have to be doing over 130 miles per hour. Average.

It is literally impossible to drive from San Jose to Santa Ana in 3 hours. Because there's no way to be going that fast the entire way, even if your car can manage it, traffic (and the highway patrol) will prevent such.

Damn easterners and their silly thoughts that California is all close together.

San Jose to Santa Ana is at least 6.5 hours if everything goes smoothly.

If you can do the "Beam me up" thing, you ought to be able to do 400 miles in a LOT less than 3 hours... ;-)

I am still dreaming about a 660-based 6/12 double!

As long as we are beaming up stuff, why not have a 330/6, 360/12 ,4003 and 650 beamed up at the same time. Then just kick and shake the juke box really hard at the receiving end and see what comes out...

On a more practical note... take any Ric and suspend a 5 lbs weight from the headstock and another 5 lbs weight at the tail, shorten your strap so that the headpiece is just a little higher than your eyes and then you will get the approximate feel of a doubleneck.

Also figure that you had better never miss a note because all eyes will be glued to the showoff who plays 2 guitars at once.

Speaking of weight, according to the 1982 Rickenbacker Price List, the 362/12 doubleneck weighed in at 17 pounds. Model 4080 and 4080/12 are listed at 21 pounds.

Hello, not trying to butt in on your post. But you guys seem to know your stuff on these guitars! I have a double neck lap steel im trying to find info on. I emailed Rickenbacker and they told me its a early 1950s model D12. I am trying to see how much it is worth now. I can not find pics of it or any info. Trying to find a shop that can appraise it for me. Thanks for any help you have :)
