Glen Campbell's 1940's Vega C-26 Archtop Guitar

A fter moving to Los Angeles in 1960, Glen Campbell released his first record at Capitol, Big Bluegrass Special , in 1962.

Good morning Bonnie! Gosh, there are so many songs that Glen did that were better than the folks that get credit for them. Glen could put feeling in his voice...which changed the scope of delivery.
