    This is a cool looking guitar...
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    I couldn't find any more info where I lifted the picture, but just did some looking online. There's one on eBay right now that's advertised as "60's Bradford/Guyatone LG-140". I know Matsumoku built some of the Guyatone stuff back in the 60's, so maybe MIJ.

    There was a time, early on, when I thought four pickups were cool. I actually owned one (Tombolini? Combolini? I can't remember). As time went on, I started to see the appeal in more minimalist designs....I liked Tele's a lot more than Strats for years. As I got to spend more time on forums, I began to hear people waxing enthusiastic about Esquires, the premise being that they sounded better because there was no magnetic pull on the strings from a neck pickup. Also, I've heard lots of guys talk about increased difficulty achieving good intonation on three pickup Strats, and getting wolf-tones and Stratitis because pickups were set too high. So, when I see a four pickup guitar now, I automatically think it must either be a cheapo or a Japanese 60's model. I'm not quite sure what to think of guitars like Steve Morse's Tele.....
