    a PRS perhaps? I can't really see the headstock, so it's hard to tell...

    edit: I saw another pic of the same guitar, and it definitely looks like a PRS.

    I'm pretty damn sure it's a Dean Hardtail. I know because I'm getting one in a couple of months.

    The shape of the headstock was what made me think it's a PRS, but the body seems a little different; it could be that it's a Hardtail. Brock doesn't appear on either the Dean or PRS websites in the "Artists" sections; that would have made things too easy, right?

    The top cutaway horn isn't as long and the volume/tone controls and pickup selector don't match the dean. Most people have no idea what he plays. I've also seen him play a weird looking telecaster thing and lots of PRS-esque guitars.

    Its a custom guitar made by a luthier named Brian Wick or Wicks? from what I can gather.

    Don't get a Dean, they're junk. They may be cheap, but my friend had one & it never stayed in tune, sounded like total shit. Plus I have a lot of friends that work in music stores, they aren't recommended.

    Yeah, I figured it was custom.

    And yes, Deans are pieces of utter shit if it isn't one of the vintage Deans.

    To tell you the truth, I can get the same damn sound with a Strat set at the bridge pickup or a Tele....and a '65 Twin Reverb Reissue....

    Matons... oooo... I love their acoustics... I played a Tommy Emmanuel signature model before. They're awesome. I still side with that it's a custom.

    Definately not a PRS.
