    Looks like it's a 4001S or a 4003S. Ask him if it only has one output instead of 2. The 4003S has one output, dots instead of triangle inlays and no bindings. The 4003S ran from 1980 to 1985, They sold both the later model 4001S and the 4003S at about the same time. There are older 4001S models but they don't have the pickup config in your picture.

    Can't tell whether it's a 4001 or 4003 from the photo, but it's defintely a "S" model. Not what you would call "rare", but you don't see many of them.

    The rounded edges make it much more comfortable to play.
