Guitjo Double-neck

A double-necked guitjo is a guitar-like, fretted, stringed, musical instrument that has two necks attached to a single body, generally with 14 strings, seven on each neck. It is strung more like a banjo rather than a traditional guitar. The two necks can be played simultaneously, producing a sound that has elements of both guitar and harp.[1][2]

The double-necked guitjo was developed in the late twentieth century.[3] Guitjos are made and repaired by luthiers.
