I think it's the peanut guitar. There are other photos of it in here somewhere.
I notice you're in Athens. If you're not busy on the 18th go to the Georgia Theatre and check out Mama's Cookin'. I caught their gig here in Jacksonville last night. They are definitely worth listening to.

It's a peanut guitar made by Alembic. These were prototypes using a generic body style to test other features. Check out http://alembic.com/club/messages/395/11103.html for more info and Susan's take on Alembic's role in Garcia's guitars. These two also chronical the axes Gerry played (the picture you posted is in the second link). http://www.nii.net/~obie1/deadcd/garcia_guitars.htm and http://dozin.com/jers/guitar/history.htm
