Yep, TP was definitely a sharp-dressed man in that !! 8)
That coat was seen in the video for "So You Want to be a Rock In Roll Star" with Tom and Mike playing Rics

Heard from John Hall about this guitar.

It is not a prototype but rather a one off.

"This is indeed a fully solid body guitar- and very heavy.

It is NOT a prototype, as there was never an intention to build another. It
WAS a special request and I had it built as a personal birthday gift to
Tom."

So there you go folks - hard info on it.

What material is the body? Maple? How heavy it must be! :shock:

Some new images popped up on Facebook of this guitar, which is back on display in Cleveland...

I thought I would add them here for future reference...
