The photo was posted on FB yesterday as a preview of : http://jerrygarcia.com/ which is very cool!

I have never seen it on stage, but ya never know! I don't know what it is either. If the photo was better we could just ZOOM!

I think this has been posted here before? I'll bet someone here knows.

I was looking at the pic at first thought it was a cheesy who know what Electra or something but then, I noticed the adjustable compensating nut. That's all I needed.

It's an aptly named "space tone" made by Micro Frets Guitars between 1967 and 1974. The company only built 3000 guitars total.
