    Those are some funky looking dudes with some very cool instruments. Obviously not the Mavericks that I know (Raul Malo, etc.).
    Chief. Way up North. Gibson 1917 A model with pickup. JL Smith 5 string electric. 1929 National Triolian resonator mandolin with pickup. National RM 1 with pickup. Ovation Applause. Fender FM- 60 E 5 string electric (with juiced pickups). 1950's Gibson EM-200 electric mandolin. 1954 Gibson EM-150 electric mandolin. Custom made "Jett Pink" 5 string electric- Bo Diddley slab style. Jay Roberts Tiny Moore model 5 string electric.

    The instrument in the middle *is* a Jim Harvey instrument, according to Deke Dickerson's blog page - see about 7/8 of the way down that page for info and more pictures of the instrument, including the OP's black-and-white pic. Here's a quick snippet:

    "The one bizarre photo we have of The Mavericks, lit from underneath like a 1930's horror photograph, shows Collin with his Gibson doubleneck, a smiling Dick with his Fender/Harvey doubleneck, and a drummer named Russ, who apparently didn't mind being in a band with no bass player and two guys playing doubleneck guitars."

    Also, according to what I saw at Google Books, some (or maybe all?) of that blog's text is in a 2013 book by the same author called "Strat in the Attic: Thrilling Stories of Guitar Archaeology" (NFI).
