Stevens typically used J-200, J-180, but also allowed Ovation inside the herd. 
Here is the early Cat with something unknown. Could be a Levin. . 

That almost looks like a National with the dots to the side.   I had a electric at one point in time with almost the same finger board.

I might aid your curiosity with a more complete photo of a similar snapshot:


The photo was presumably taken in hospital during his convalescence from tuberculosis, ca. 1969. The guitar is a 12-string J-45 knockoff.

Really cool photo from what is now a legendary  breakthrough period in Cat Stevens’ music career.  

Thanks for sharing!
