Seriously, I want one for those for low G and high G, Cletus. Can you make me one, please? I'll pay you for it. Cash money.

Only two? Child's play. http://circuitsandstrings.wordpress.com/2013/10/18/quad-neck-ukulele/

I never understood the allure of double necks.

For one thing, the weight of the extra neck will make it heavier and harder to hold/balance, and neither neck is in your ideal playing zone.

How hard is it to set one instrument down and pick up another, even if you're performing onstage?

I suspect the "cool factor" far outweighs any real practicalities.

Chuck Moore made a beautiful one. One neck was four strings, and the other was an eight string.
