Limited market for that thing.

Napa County. Maybe someone is drinking too much wine up there.

Even though it is clearly strung like one, I'm wondering how much like a traditional banjo the banjo portion of that instrument would sound, mainly because it has a wooden body instead of a drumhead* for resonance.

* I'm fairly sure they're not called that when they're on a banjo, but that's what they look like to me.

True, it would sound like an electric guitar, unless some signal processing made it more banjo-like, but even then, it would be a poor imitation, IMO.

The biggest acoustic difference is the lack of a skin head, like a drum as you said, which would give a loud, short attack like a snare drum making a musical note. With the strings being on a solid wood body, it would have a smoother attack with a lot more sustain, not at all like a a banjo.

Not much info on the company but there are a number of odd double neck instruments on reverb and eBay. Somebody said they are Japanese. Here’s a not too favorable post:
