Anyone have any ideas what guitar this is?

It was purchased from a local shop in Maryland by my dad about 20 years ago. He said it cost around $400. Since then the guitar has been moved various places and is now with me in Louisiana. It was painted once before by him. Also, it has a bolt-on neck. That's really all I know about it.

Guitar:

Best pictures I can get from my webcam.

Any help will be appreciated!

EDIT: If it helps it was see-thru black cherry before it was painted.

Does your camera flip the image or is that a left-handed guitar? Also is there a brand on the headstock or is it just blank? I'm having a hard time believing that cost $400 especially 20 years go.

The camera flipped the image and the headstock is completely blank.

It looks like a custom guitar made by someone. I would look for Maryland based companies to see if it maybe was by some local dude.

How does it play?

does look like a custom made. the blank headstock kinda pushes that idea a little more. but then again ive seen some blank headstocks on guitars before. i too would like to know how it sounds tho

It sounds awesome. But my amp isn't that great so you won't really be able to hear what it sounds like.

And for those who must know....*looks around*.....it's a Crate Flexwave Half Stack.
Don't laugh.

B.C. Iron Bird maybe?

Don't they look like that?


Huh. It looks REALLY similar. But without the trem, inlays, and the little spike above the neck pup. The little spike is there but it's not as "sharp" is the best way I can say it.
EDIT: and the headstock. and the pups.

I believe it's a Hondo, don't know the model.

EDIT: Nah, I guess not. But it looks like it:
