Can you identify the mystery doubleneck guitar / (very) short-scale bass?

guitarz.blogspot.com:
Guitarz reader Jeff brought this mystery doubleneck to my attention. It's currently being offered for sale on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $649, although the seller is completely in the dark as to what this guitar/bass combo actually is. Apparently the pickups are made by Framus so it would be a perfectly reasonable piece of guesswork that the whole guitar might be made by Framus, but the seller claims to have checked with Framus who have responded that it's not one of theirs. Jeff suggested to me that it has the looks of a Carvin to it, and I reckon he might be onto something there.

Can any of you guys identify it more conclusively?

  4. Reminds me of a 1965 Koontz triple neck guitar: http://cdn1.gbase.com/usercontent/gear/3050664/p1_uqmajwb5o_so.jpg

    Though it doesn't look quite as glamorous, maybe inspired by this guitar?
    Backs of the necks bring old hofner archtops to mind.
