    This one is a new one on me. I've never seen this before? Any ideas what it is. Quite old. This is a UK singer/comedian from quite a while back, Stan Stennett and this is his favourite guitar.

    Interesting. It's like a Casino but with pointy horns and deeper body.

    Not just me then! It’s a little bit of this and little bit of that isn’t it?

    Barney Kessel double cut I'm informed - anybody heard of this? Found one on reverb for six and a half grand (POUNDS, not Dollars)

    It's beautiful guitar, but it seems like a lot to pay for the novelty of a double cutaway archtop unless you plan on flipping it over and playing it left-handed. You could probably find a comparable vintage single cutaway (like an ES-175) for half that - not that you're shopping for any insanely expensive guitars.
