Four pickups??

A new restaurant opened near our house (Appleby's), and they have an old guitar on the wall with 4 pickups on it, look like humbuckers that say something like "Pinnacle" or "Supreme" or some such thing. No other ID. Until I can get a photo of it, anyone have any idea what it might be?

I wonder if it still plays as well as the day it was made?
The neck looks to be made of real wood and then had a formica veneer applied to the headstock, nice colour though.

I tried to photograph whatever might help in identifying it. Clearly, the adjustable bridge is missing. I agree on the formica. The "hold down" for the strings on the headstock might be a clue. And who ever heard of Spectrum pickups?

What did I say?

It IS a Teisco.

It's a Teisco ET-440 from 1969 (otherwise known as the Spectrum 4, hence the name on the pickeps).

What do I win?

Interesting. I guess in perfect condition, it might be worth what someone paid for it back in 1969.
