Apologies for the poor quality of the photographs of this particular instrument; unfortunately the eBay seller didn’t provide any better pictures. However, this is such a crazy instrument, I thought you’d like to see it anyway.
This might be one solution to the problem of someone who wants to play two different guitars during a single performance but does not want a cumbersome double-necked guitar hanging around their shoulders and breaking their back. It’s an electric double-sided guitar. It’s a six-string guitar on one side, but then you can flip it over and it’s a bass on the reverse. Or vice versa!
Personally, I think a double-neck might be easier. Just look at the thickness of the that neck, which of course is square in section and has strings on the reverse! I can’t imagine it’d be the easiest neck to play.
Of course the whole double-sided guitar concept is not a totally original idea. Several years ago we looked at double-sided acoustic guitars (which had the advantage of having separate back-to-back necks – something that the depth of an acoustic body will allow). Also, Krappy Guitars have made a couple of double-sided electrics.
Unfortunately I can’t tell you anything more about this particular instrument, anything important like manufacturer, brand, model name, etc, or even if it’s just a one-off or an actual production model. Very possibly it’s one of those xcrazy instruments built in China that blatantly disregard any practicalities of playability. Despite all that, this example is currently listed on eBay with a starting price of £499.
Thanks to Scott for showing us this particular instrument via our Facebook page.

The Hagstrom Select Series, Vintage Series, and UltraLux Series guitars recapture the original glorious Hagstrom style. They are built to the same stringent quality standards and feature Hastrom’s exclusive technologies including the legendary H-Expander Truss Rod while introducing a number of new technological advances such as the Resinator Fretboard in order to guarantee that these are the finest guitars on the market. The UltraLux Series XL-2P is a soloist’s dream, featuring a new state-of-the-art neck design that is so thin it has to be played to be believed. Measuring a mere 18-19mm thick, the UltraLux’s neck still benefits from Hagstrom’s H-Expander truss rod and Resinator fretboard for stability and reliability. The XL-2P is effortless and accurate, and the super thin neck and ergonomic solid body provide the ultimate playability. The XL-2P features a Basswood body with Flame Maple Veneer, a super fast UltraLux Maple set neck, as well as the distinctive Resinator wood fingerboard with Hagstrom Abalone position marks. The XL-2P features Hagstrom 15:1 die cast tuners, 25.5 inch scale length, 2 x Hagstrom custom H-90 pickups, a 3-way pickup switch, and an FCS-2 bridge. The H-Expander Truss Rod provides tension at either end and running the entire length of the neck. The rigid yet lightweight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the world’s fastest playing guitar. The Ultralux Series XL-2P also features 1x Volume / 1x Tone controls.
