I was at this free concert in the park, the band was the Snarky Cats out of San Jose, CA. Check out the guitar player's axe.....the only thing I can come up with is a lefty guitar strung righty.

It looks like there's no logo on the headstock so it could be an aftermarket (Warmoth?) with a reverse headstock. Some people like 'em for a bit of the Hendrix vibe.

The greater part of the "righty Jimi thang" would be a lefty body, so that you have the controls, trem, and bridge pickup angle all reversed a la Jimi. But this guy has a righty body, so the "vibe" is basically cosmetic.

String tension. The low E string is longer and the high E string is shorter and all others follow.
