Sounds like my Gibson G101. But it could also be one of its sound-alike "cousins," the Lowrey T2, Gibson G201 or even some Lowrey spinets of the era that had similar technology and voicing.  Or a Kalamazoo K101, which was identical to the G101 except for the branding.  Or a digital version of any of the above.

So many possibilities...

Still have not found me a Gibson yet lol.. but I recently bought the Arturia V collection software and it had a farfisa with a preset called lucy for lucy in the sky with diamonds. It sounded a lot like a gibson so i tweaked around a little and it is pretty good.

Yes, that's a very nice digital emulation. Nice job on the tweaking!
