Looks like a Jay Turser to me:

[edit] the bass in your pic is also a Jay Turser [\edit]

[edit2] I'm an idiot... looked at the wrong guitar

The guitar you asked about looks to be a Mosrite

Note the correction above. It's either a Mosrite or a copy of one. Specifically the 'Ventures' model.

Furthermore, it appears that the guitar in the OP has been modified with a white pickguard (normally, a white one would have had a 'tortoise shell' or black pickguard) and humbuckers instead of P90s. This is how they normally look:



& a recent(ish) copy:

Lastly, to the OP:

If you're looking for a current production version of the Mosrite Ventures guitar, it appears that Eastwood is making one called the Sidejack:

Thanks for the help guys!
It's a bit uniqe choise for this kind of music...seems like the humbuckers works good, i expected for this kind of guitar a very thin sound

It's a Univox Hi-Flier Phase 3, made between 1974 and 1978.


These days, Eastwood makes a replica of the Phase 4 model, which is basically the same but with a fixed tailpiece rather than a tremolo

Richmond (a Godin Subsidiary) has their own take on the design, with or without a Bigsby:

Good call! I completely forgot about those!

Hard to say... they really could be just about anything. That said, given the age of the instrument and the fact that the pickups coils are cream-colored, I'd guess DiMarzio.
