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.

Re: Glen Campbell's Epiphone Zephyr Deluxe Regent

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.

This is undoubtedly the guitar Glen has owned the longest, at least 62 years which is pretty amazing when you think of it.

Re: Ovation Bluebird 12 String

Dee;

Also, the Bluebird at the HOF (same one that is in the 'staircase' pic) has the deluxe diamond inlay pattern on the fingerboard whereas the one that came into the factory has the plainer 'dot' pattern.

Mike;

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

Re: Glen Campbell's Ovation 1624 (Proto X014)

Here is one more of X014 which I believe, was taken on the same night as the previous photo. The sheet music for Manhatten Kansas. This photo also appeeared on the back of the Guitar Instruction book from 1971.

Here is the one album cover I know of featuring the GC X014 guitar. This album was released in 1972.

Re: 1968 Ovation Glen Campbell 12 String

Here is another pic from the same Johnny Cash show of Glen using the same guitar.

Re: 1968 Ovation Glen Campbell 12 String

Thanks Jay, for the wonderful job you do with these guitar threads.

I would like to add this photo of Glen and his 12-string prototype at the Whitehouse with President Nixon on May 7, 1971.

Re: Ovation Prototype X008 Glen Campbell Thunderhead

Well, it's been over three years from the time I first found out about this guitar until now and it is FINALLY where it needs to be. I had put the original pickups back in but as great as they looked, they were too microphonic to use. I had them taken out once again and have them wax potted and now ...

Re: Mosrite Balladere I, Model 401

An eagle-eyed forum member pointed out that Eric is only playing the 12-string Mosrite acoustic throughout the video. Glen is seen holding the sixer at the end of the song.

I subjected myself to this song one more time to see that this indeed, true! ;)

Re: Jerry Reed Turnaround in Southern Nights

Glen was playing that lick effortlessly in songs years before the recording of SN, during the Goodtime Hour run which is probably when he learned it from Jerry.

I'll post an example later.
