Vintage 10-string acoustic

Is this a guitar? I'm not entirely sure. It certainly looks guitar-like. Although it's currently strung with just six strings, it appears to be a 10-string guitar and the slots in the nut show that it would have had six courses as on a guitar but with first and second courses as single strings and the remaining four courses as paired strings. (The same stringing as the B.C. Rich Bich 10-string guitar!)

Of course nuts can be re-cut, bridges and tailpieces can be replaced, so we can't be certain if this would have been the original set-up. Does anyone out there know for sure?

  1. Did you ever find out the name of this instrument? I'm curious to know. I'd also love to know where you saw it. I know it's probably too much to hope for seeing as this was now over a year ago, but I'd love to buy this and restore it if it happens to still be available.
