1966 Kauffman Kremo-Kustom Double-Neck
This unique 'modern abstract' single cutaway solid body, Kremo-Kustom double-neck weighs just 9.40 lbs. and is just one of eight Kremo-Kustom guitars that were made between 1955 and 1968. Designed and built by Doc Kauffman, this guitar features a 'modern-abstract', solid maple body with rounded edges and two futuristic headstocks - both joined to their respective neck by the Kaufmann 'Finger-Joint' system. Both of the necks are hand-carved from solid maple - the six-string neck has a wonderful thick profile. The twelve-string neck has a medium-to-thick profile and both necks have a nut width of just under 1 3/4 inches and a short scale length of 23 inches. Both necks have rosewood fingerboards with two-layer bone nuts, a 'zero' fret and 22 medium-jumbo frets and cream dot position markers and side-dot markers. The six-string headstock has the "Kremo-Kustom / by Kauffman / Design Recorded" gold, red and black decal. The 'slotted' six-string headstock has Individual Waverly open-back tuners with oval metal buttons and the twelve-string headstock has side-mounted Waverly, open-back strip tuners with oval cream plastic buttons. Each neck secured to the body by four large screws. Both necks have their 'circular' truss-rod adjustment at the neck end. The six-string guitar has two Kauffman Kremo-Kustom Single-Coil pickups with cream 'ridged' plastic covers and outputs of 5.93k and 5.56k. The twelve-string guitar with a single Kauffman Kremo-Kustom Single-Coil pickup with cream 'ridged' plastic cover and an output of 5.88k.
