Often, it is quicker and cheaper to create a visual representation rather than an actual product in order to gauge a market response. In this instance, there was a request from a major dealer to create a double ukulele consisting of a standard 4-string instrument, combined into one body with a special 8-string variant. With only the 4-string ukulele to work with, the complete image had to be created from scratch. This entailed retouching all the strings and designing a special 8-string head, as well as a new double-width body.
