no...it's still an offset...a retarded-looking offset, but an offset, nonetheless...

I like it! Shape of the top horn reminds me of this...

... which I think is one of the nicest looking upper horns I've seen. And I've seen a few in my time, I can tell you. A less chari table side of me, however, says it looks like my old Fender Bullet.

So ..  I'm not so familiar with Mustangs but the back end looks a little larger than a Mustang .. replacement body? Or is it just a Mustang that's been chopped up?

my guess is:

1.  The upper horn was simply chopped off
2.  The lower horn was cut deeper from the tip to the neck
3.  The butt was shaved down quite a bit.

Whoever did this should walk out into the nearest street and shoot himself.  >:(
