It’s a Model 1412 solid body electric guitar made in Japan by Teisco in mid- to late 1970 or early 1971 and imported to the U.S. for sale at Sears Roebuck & Co. It has two single-coil pickups with separate switches, a sweep design headstock with a ‘Space Dot’ logo and a hinge-and-spring whammy bar. I found it Saturday at Acme House of Music, a small shop a few blocks east of 35th Avenue on MacArthur Boulevard in Oakland’s Laurel District.

Its last human’s name may have been Carl Reynolds, as that’s what’s scratched into the pick guard in cursive. Its current human’s name is George. – View on Path.
