    Can anyone identify what type of guitar this is?

    The band is called the Cadillac Three, never seen a guitar like it.

    Peghead looks a little like a Maton from Australia

    Thanks. That is what I thought it said, but I googled "Maton" guitars and their logo looks nothing like that.

    I think that script logo is new. The only one I'd even seen was the block letters like in the first pic. But then again, I don't closely follow Maton, I've just run across them here and there since about 2005. I first heard of 'em as Jessie Hughes from Eagles of Death Metal was playing them at the time.
