Welcome, Douglas - that's a pretty nice intro!
How long have you had this, and would you care to say a few words about the others?
(I'm not sure, but I think you're exempt from having to post pictures on those which you no longer own... we may need a ruling on this.)

well the doubleneck was a real albatross.. too heavy. It came from Minneapolis and was well worn, I bought it from Gruhn Guitar and after talking to Rick Turner turned it into a Baritone Guitar tuning on the 6 string neck(31 inch?) and left the 4 string frettless neck as it was (34 inch). 79-1492 was a series II and was Mahogany with an ebony neck.Heavy and felt like playing a Steinway piano.

I've never seen anyone play an alembic guitar live on stage apart from me on photo's and video's... hahahah
But a few thousand punters have.... :-)
How does that guitar balance?
I wonder if the small body shape (clarkee style) has the same balance issues ( neck heavy) as the bass in the same shape?
I have an old Ibanez SW400WN guitar that has the strap button at the base of the neck and that leans forward away from my body when playing as does my clarkee bass.
