Bunker touch guitar and bass headless doubleneck

I don't think I've ever seen one of these come up for sale on eBay before. It's a Dave Bunker GTT-1000 Touch Guitar, a doubleneck headless instrument consisting of a 4-string bass and a 6-string guitar with an ultra-wide fretboard for touch-style playing. The insturment requires a special playing style with both halves of the instrument being played together, the bass section with the left-hand (played tap-style - or using hammer-ons against the frets), and the guitar section being tapped with the right-hand. Note the cover over the guitar strings on the body so that the right forearm can safely rest in that position.

This guitar is currently being auctioned on eBay with a very low starting price. I'm not sure of the age of this instrument - you may want to compare with the contemporary Bunker Touch Guitar (priced at $6,995).
