Whilst perusing Youtube: Stephane Grappelli with Pierre Cavalli; Lady Be Good, 1963.
The video includes a guitar solo, though not on the mini-6.


Here's another image of the guitar - and a song by the guitarist, though the song is probably not from this album!

That's a great video! Thanks for posting. I'm a huge fan of the Spruce top Gibson double neck guitars (here's mine: 1959 Gibson EDS-1275). The design is so unique among Gibson guitar design with the thick solid Spruce top with no sound holes, and fully hollow thin body with Maple laminate back. It's too bad Gibson didn't make this design in a six string only guitar (that I know of).

I was curious if the player was going to make use of the middle switch (or neck switch? I'm not sure what to call it). It's a cool option because it's a three position switch that can toggle between the upper neck, lower neck, or both in parallel in the middle position. It can almost work like a rhythm/lead preset since it drops the output a bit in parallel. He seems to be using the bottom neck only with the switch in that position the entire time I could see it.
