    It's a Mosrite... a "Semie Moseley guitar specially built for Don in 1968."
    (see website of Hallmark Guitars, who reproduces them as the "Deke Dickerson Model Two.")


    This came up a couple of years ago... http://www.tdpri.com/threads/don-rich-and-his-microfrets-telecaster.758373/

    Here's the "Hee Haw" video:


    I guess they had a brief deal with Mosrite? I read that after the Buckaroos refused to turn in their Fender endorsement "gift" guitars, Fender dropped them and Gibson started giving them guitars. I saw a video of Rich playing a Les Paul! Of course he eventually went back to the Telecaster.

    My eyes aren't what they used to be, but...I don't see any strings on that guitar!
