    I'm not sure of the model number but it's a beauty, all surf, no two-tone:

     
  3. This G5420T does NOT have the surf green headstock . . .



    It looks like one would be Miss April 2012 . . .
    . . . on cover with singer/songwriter Bruno Mars and a Gretsch G6118.
    Apparently the two did the same photo shoot pose but with a red Strat that is inside
    that Playboy April 2012 issue but I dunno if it was a clothing optional shot (either for Bruno or “Raquel”)? Yikes !

    I remember one model Gene Simmons was dating posed with a Rickenbacker bass for the centerfold... that was back in the late '70s some time, I imagine...

    edit: Google search says it was Star Stowe, playmate for February 1977... sadly, her life went wildly downhill and she was murdered in 1997 working the streets...
