it's pragmatically called a "magnetic double neck" by Flux Guitars

i actually think the main 12 string guitar is a cool shape on it own, and the little 6 on its own has a sweet guyatone vibe (not sure you can wear it separately). the magnetic function is ingenious.

crowdfund page:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/flux-guitars-magnetic-double-neck#/

currently going for $2000 so too rich for my blood.

sean "shad" lennon seems a fan:

It's a cool idea, and the 12 string looks good on it's own... But how high do you have to wear it to put the 6 string at a playable hight... And Sean Lennon can FUCK OFF!!!

It's never the right height. One will always be in an uncomfortable position no matter how you sling it.

What color green is that on the 12 string?

12 string does look great on its own. Also endless combo possibilities, you could add a 6 string baritone, 4 string bass, 8 string mandocello. Neat concept.

12 string on its own is an interesting shape, the lower bout reminds me of a cello. I wonder how they get the signal to pass from the 6 to the 12 with the magnets.

Never mind, it's a physical connection, I just watched the video on the indiegogo. Theres some metal pins on the tiny guitar and holes on the 12's side which aren't visible in photos, you can sort of see it in the video.
