    Hi all,

    I am looking for a strange guitar body shape. I once thought I saw a picture of Russ Freeman playing one.

    The guitar is a double cutaway and has a non-descript rounded end section but an inverted V near the neck. There was a pickguard that followed a V-shape, going on to both bouts of the body near the neck.

    Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    Thanks,

    JMC

    There is a reverse Flying V. Is this what you are looking for?

    Hrrm, only thing that really springs to mind is something like a Gretsch Duo Jet.

    Actually, the Reverend Billy Corgan sig sorta meets your description too, and has a more pronounced (but non-symetrical) vee

    I think I've seen Russ with a Fender Performer:

    All good guesses, but not what I think I saw. Thanks, though.

    This. It's in this video, with best views between 3:40 and 5:00.

    That looks just like the one in the video. That also doesn't sound much like OP's description :)

    For some reason, I imagine these are props in The 5th Element.
