I'm pretty new to the guitar scene, and a friend gifted this Norma guitar to me. Can anyone identify a model or worth? The pickups look strange to me.

The guitar was made by the Tombo company in Japan, probably between 1965 and 1970. The "Norma" name was used for japanese-made guitars distributed in the US by Strum n Drum. The pickups are now known as "Gold Foil" pickups. Ry Cooder seems to like them. From what I understand, they're basically really hot single coils.

I can't find a model name. I've seen japanese guitars similar to this one go for 100-200 dollars, depending on the condition.

Hope that helps
