    What's Jack Casady playing here?

    I'm sorta assuming it's an Alembic custom job, but I dunno. Any guesses or definitive answers?

    At first glance it looks like a Zon. Lemme do a search...

    That pic's way old for a Zon, I believe.

    The body looks like those old B.C. Rich Seagull guitars from late '70s.

    Yeah I'd have to concur that it looks like the BC Rich Seagull. Surprisingly few knobs & switches though. :D

    It might be a Becvar. He made some vaguely Alembic-shaped instruments back in the 70s.

    After looking at Seagull guitars online, there's little doubt. Identically odd shape.

    Body shape looks right so it's quite possible that's what it is.
