It had a very odd alligator-like vinyl coated body that was bound with a piece of some sort of plastic where the two halves joined together. The neck was darned near non-tapered or it was tapered just a little bit. The tuners were very small. It was red. It was made in Germany. It was in a formed Hofner tweed case. Pictures soon as I can get them for you. Anyone ever seen one of these?
