That's not an aluminium neck, is it ? :)

Since this is more of build discussion, I deleted your thread in Uke Talk.

No. It's not aluminum.
That would be awesome. I don't know why Kramer abandoned that design.

I was going to say that uke must have been inspired by Gene Simmon's bass from KISS.

Gene Simmons' bass was undeniably the inspiration for this one.
I do a lot of scaling down famous guitars and basses to ukulele size.
I also try to give them each their own tuning so they all have a different voice.
The Axe is a steel string electric, Jerry Garcia's Tiger is tenor scale but strung and tuned like a baritone ukulele....
I've done a couple Danelecto models as well.
I was going to do a Tear Drop Like Brian Jones used to play but Vox beat me to it.

Rob, look at my signature, I've done that with a number of bass ukes.

I'd love to get a better look at them.
How do I get a closer look at your picture?
