Anyone know what he's playing in this video? Can't find anything about it anywhere.

I want to know too! I think it is a Hofner or some other german guitar.

I forgot how much I loved the Jesus and Mary Chain.

Hmmm. It's an odd one. Fender style headstock, 3 pickups, 6 knobs. Not sure exactly what it is but its similar to the Harmony Rocket and those old 60s semi hollows.

Unfortunately it seems to have no name on the headstock:

Probably in the Sekova/True Tones/Kay family no doubt

+1

Reminds me a lot of the Kay on the right here



Truetone version



The neck on his has a fingerboard extension that goes all the way to the neck pickup... probably a same-factory rebrand, something they stuck a bunch of necks on.

I used to have a small shortscale hollowbody True Tone/Sekova with an enlogated Fenderish headstock like the one on William's guitar. I also know they made quite a few guitars like the Kay and truetone you just posted, but I can't findany with a Fender headstock or a trapeze trem system like the one on the guitar in question.


My best guess is based on the backwards pickguard this guy was no stranger to mods and the guitar is a hodgepodge of cheapo 50's/60's guitar parts

Yeah it could be a Valco made guitar. When they bought out Kay in the late 60's they used up all the spare parts in anyway they could like this 1968 Truetone "floor sweep" I used to have.The body,pickups and bridge are all Kay parts and the neck and switches are Valco.

They owned a fair bit of old pawn shop guitars, probably a cheap 70's brand.
