Hum, I would have thought of the Phrygian Dominant Scale, 5th mode of  
the Harmonic Minor scale
With a Bb (F major scale) and a C#, this would mean D harmonic minor
D E F G A Bb C#
Fifth mode is A
A Phryghian dominant would be
A Bb C# D E F G
To be played typically on a A7b9 (A C# E G Bb)

Would it be that?
On what chord did your guitarist proposed this scale?
