    Not at all sure, just guessing Dan Armstrong or Ampeg?

    Ampeg/Armstrong

    And why does Jack's head look so big in that photo?

    Bridge, pickup and headstock don't match Ampeg/Armstrong, and I don't think that body is Plexiglass. Maybe a prototype?

    Armstrong didn't make only clear plexiglass instruments. He even dabbled in reworked Danos.

    Here it is, wood body, sliding pickup and all:

    Dan Armstrong - The Man and his Guitars

    LOL, looks like yodedude2 beat me to it.
