The above-pictured guitar is a Micro-Frets Golden Comet (Micro-Frets often had space-age names). This is quite a basic model without the Micro-Frets Calibrato (a vibrato which allowed the strings to stay in tune relatively while the pitch was being altered) but nevertheless is still a much desirable model. It is of semi-hollow body construction with distinctively shaped f-hole and features pickups desgined by Bill Lawrence and which look decidedly P90-like.
This Golden Comet is currently being auctioned on eBay with the starting price set at a quite reasonable $500.
