  1. The section "Gibson Double Mandolin" states that it is not a six string and mandolin, but a six string and octave guitar, "see picture at right" it says. Count the strings. There are 8. It is a mandolin. They made both guitar/mando and guitar/octave. They made six string guitar and 4 string bass. They were special order. They would make any combination you were willing to pay for. I have seen pictures of an electric 5 string banjo and electric tenor guitar Gibson double neck.
