Double neck acoustic guitars are a rare commodity and so big was the demand for our Chimaera when we first started building it that we added it to the standard range in 2014.
It is made using our unique one-piece moulding technology, making it incredibly strong and stable with absolutely no joints to fail. This strength allows the instrument to be lighter in construction with a top that is delicate and responsive, yet stiff enough to resist the pull of all 18 strings.
Carbon has also allowed us to create a much more ergonomic design with a slim-contoured body that fits comfortably whether playing the Chimaera on your knee or with a strap. And with the staggered neck design it puts each neck in exactly the right place as you transition between them.
