Unusual factory features

OK, well, I had to put a model number and other guesses in to get this query submitted but the model number on this guitar label is NOT G6189. And specifically I had to guess answers to the questions about the fret markers (most of them didn't mean anything to me) and the main colour. But here goes with what I know in my words and I'm happy to try to get a picture of the guitar if I can track it down again:The puzzle is that the Model number is G6139, which I can't find any record. Though the guitar looks very genuine!The colour is what I'd call light bamboo green.It has one pickup near the end of the fret board and I think it is a De Armond but don't know what version.It has a volume and tone control. The whole guitar looks very similar to a 6189 Streamliner (bridge, tailpiece, knobs, tuners) but the Model is definitely 6139 (the 3 is very clear).

Any clues?Thanks,David Skellerndaves@ieee.org
