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:

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:

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

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


Good call! I completely forgot about those!

Thanks again
what pickup did he install?
double single coil?

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.
