I believe the Bluebird 6-string that Glen is playing in the video with Captain and Tennille is the one that I currently own.

I thought I had posted this already but here is a nice picture of Glen at the White House on May 7, 1971, with musicians Bob Felts, Bill Graham and Dennis McCarthy.

The X014 guitar is on the stand to Glen's left.

Re: 12 string electric

Hi Jim;

Glen seemed to like the Fender Twin Reverb a lot in those days, for his electrics and his Prismatone equipped Ovation nylon string guitars as well.

8:21 pm?

Now, that is some detail there! You have done an awesome job with this guitar info section, Jay. Many thanks to you for your work and research.

Yes, Glen played the six string Bluebird on McArthur Park on the RFH video.
