    Looks like an old Strat that's been rode hard and put away wet.

    It's a guitar. It was last strung by someone who didn't know how to string a Strat.

    Oh, and it appears as though it was played by someone who liked to stay close to the nut.

    I remember the good old days when you didn't need to be a forensic luthier to buy a pre-cbs strat.

    Looks like a guitar to me. Probably a fender.

    If those are the only pictures provided, I would be extremely suspicious.

    Based on very limited experience, I would say it's not American -- that doesn't appear to be a walnut plug for the truss rod, and the string tree is characteristic of an import.

    I would guess that @jfgesquire has nailed it.

    for what it's worth, i've never seen a pre cbs that used Philip's head screws...but then i don't know if this is being represented as a pre cbs guitar.

    Good call, really no info but presented as an item in something like an estate sale.

    Can you inspect it in person prior to auction or sale?

    Someone should slap whomever attempted to string that with a wet leather guitar strap. Preferably repeatedly

    There's not much to go on in those pics. What's it being advertised as?
