Sherwin in January 1967 pictured with the double neck guitar he built in 1965.
Sherwin designed the guitar to look like a Fender guitar using some Fender
guitar parts.  The guitar has a six string neck and a twelve string neck.
Also, featured is a B-String bending device which was invented by Sherwin in 1961.
This innovative lever when pushed forward by the left thumb stretches the B
string one full note (whole step), and enables the player to achieve certain 
sounds similar to a pedal steel guitar. Sherwin developed a very identifiable 
and much imitated guitar style with this, which is heard on many of his early 
recordings, especially the album, "Hello, I'm Not Johnny Cash."
