Rutherford Double-Neck This guitar, a replica of one of the double-necks used by Mike Rutherford of Genesis, started as a combination of contemporary 360/12 and a 4003, but early in the process the basis for the guitar side changed to a 660/12 to more closely reflect the design of the Rutherford guitar.
