Looks like Korean TA's to me.
Tedesco was funny. I remember that he used to write in Guitar Player magazine.

I have an MIK version of the TA-60 which is nicely made and I really enjoy. I did swap out the pups for a set of GFS Mean 90's though and it sounds even better! :up:

But as usual, the Mats made versions are head and shoulders above that, just gorgeous by comparison. :love:

Southern Nights came out in 1977, I'm going to guess the video might be early 80's. I think Glen and Jerry would be playing the top-of-the-line TA100, with "Titan Artist" on the headstock. I have a really nice Mats TA60. The only thing I would replace it with would be a TA100, but people have realized their quality and they're relatively expensive now (but not as pricey as a Gibson 335 that's probably not as good).

From the comments section of the Youtube video:

"This was Jerry Reed and Special Friends, a celebrity picnic and concert at Hermitage Landing in Nashville. The year is 1982."

Yeah, I also remember Tommy from his Guitar Player days but also his TV gig on Fernwood 2Night starring Martin Mull and Frank Willard back in 1977. Hysterically deadpan funny stuff, even now!

Tedesco was in the band and played a character named Tommy Marinucchi for 29 episodes. Here's one of them:https://youtu.be/YA0-SpqYYXU?si=ZzSr0M1CRXtKh0Dk

You're right, I do see the split inlays and bound f-holes. Reeds bridge PU is a zebra.

Another Tedesco clip....
