Mystery guitar


Recommended Posts

Does anybody have any idea what sort of guitar is being played (okay, video lip-synched-played) by the guitar player on stage right of this Sniff 'n' the Tears video?

The guy might be Loz Netto, though he could be Mick Dyche.

I'm familiar with the natural finish Tele being stroked by Paul Roberts.

I'm really curious though about the black one over to his left rear (our right front). 

It's got f-holes, Les Paul style pickups and controls, split pickguards, and a shape like an Ibanez Talman, only decades before that guitar arrived.

Okay, I found the answer. 

Some guys on the TalkBass web forum were having the same discussion in 2012, and one of the fellows sent a message to Loz Netto, the guy playing the guitar in that video. 


Loz Netto responded:

The guitar you refer to was an old Hayman body that I had a neck made for by Rob Armstrong, all the harware was Gibson including 1970's PAF pickups,
it was a nice instrument but unfortunately got stolen while we were touring the U.S.A Ever since I've had a passion for putting together unusual guitars or
buying interesting looking ones,    


So 'Scales was correct. 
It was a Hayman Thinline 2020, heavily modified. 

Here's an original, unaltered Hayman:





Okay, I'm gonna shut up now.
