Double Neck Electric bass and guitar

The double neck electric bass and guitar was created by merging an old Fender Stratocaster and Fender P-Bass. The instrument has separate signals for the bass and guitar so that each instrument can undergo individual electronic processing. The instrument also utilizes automatic string resonators underneath the guitar strings controlled by electromagnets wired to an amplifier, and signal kill switches. 

Bass and Alto Electric Kalimba

These two kalimbas, also referred to as thumb pianos, are created by rigging steel tines over bass and guitar pickups, much like the strings on electric instruments. The mounting system can be loosened to facilitate tuning changes on each individual tine. Instrument co-created with Jake Schlaerth.
