Ron,
These instruments were made in Frederick, Maryland by a company called Micro-Frets. They made roughly 3600 guitars from 1966 to 1973, when the company was dissolved after the death of co-founder Ralph Jones. They listed new for around $399 in 1970. By looking at the serial number, and describing the pickup and bridge configuration, we could determine the approximate age of your instrument. If you would e-mail me with specifics we could help you out.

Regards,
Will@micro-frets.com
