This is Brian Southall from The Receiving End Of Sirens...who are hands down my favorite band. Does anyone know what type of guitar that is? It's ripped from a bad quality youtube vid but those are the only ones I could find. but it's kind of odd shaped. I don't think I've ever seen it before.

I think it's a first act Delgada, probably a custom

Well, the headstock looks like a First Act one, and the body somewhat resembles this First Act Hollowbody Delgada...but that one has a different headstock.

OTOH, this First Act Delgada has the type of headstock you see in the vid.

There could be other makers out there with something similar, but the pickups also look typical of First Act, as does the layout of the dials around the sound-hole.

thanks for your suggestions. I know it's hard to see what it is but if this is a first act, I'll be amazed. It sounds really good

I know First Act is primarily known as a maker of entry-level instruments that cost between $50-150, but they are serious about their "custom" shop stuff. Lots of First Act guitars are showing up in the hands of the pros.

Check out the links I posted- they're from First Act's gallery of custom guitars, mostly for established artists. You'll see Rick Nielsen, Nick Zinner, Brad Witford, Brent Hinds, Paul Westerburg, David Hildalgo, Al Jourgensen, both of the guys from High on Fire, both of the guys from Los Lonely Boys and many many others use First Act guitars.

Now, I didn't find your guy listed, but that could be for a variety of reasons. For instance, perhaps that wasn't his guitar and he was just borrowing it. Or he ordered it but didn't agree to any kind of publicity deal.

Whatever.

At any rate, the next nearest thing I can find to resemble it at this moment would be the Framus Hollywood Custom, but its symmetry is off, as are the controls and pickguards.

yeah I dont think Brian would order a custom shop instrument for himself. He must have borrowed it or something. Thanks for your insight
