Re: Mosrite Balladere I, Model 401

I thought this this would be an interesting video for this thread: Eric Clapton playing both of Glen's Mosrite acoustics, 6 and 12 string during this silly song from the Sumers Brothers Smothers Show in 1968. Glen introduced Cream to the world!

Re: 1971-1974 Mosrite Mark I

Just to add to my previous post since I can't seem to find the edit function: The Mosrite story was told to me by Rodger Wynfield from whom I got the Bluebird 6 that I still own. He was a guitar tech/part-time band member for Glen. He mentioned it when we were talking about the whereabouts of some o...

Re: 1971-1974 Mosrite Mark I

I was told told that someone in the audience at one of his shows offered him the Mosrite for one of Glen's Bluebird 6 string guitars which, obviously, he accepted.

Re: 1968 Ovation Glen Campbell Deluxe Balladeer

You can download the pic from the Getty's. Then once you open it the watermark on the left is gone and it looks much better that way.

Yes Jay... incredible quality. Looks like it could have been taken yesterday.

Re: Ovation 1624 (Proto X014)

This is the only video I have come across of Glen playing the Ovation 1624 (Proto X014). From a 1971 Goodtime Hour episode. It is quite identifiable in the opening seconds which show a closeup of the guitar. It is the only Prismatone equipped, initialed 1624 with a non-rectangular bridge. The label ...

Re: Mosrite Balladere I, Model 401

I thought I had seen Glen with a 12-string version of his acoustic Mosrite. Her it is, GC initials and all.

Re: Glen's ovation patriot

Hey, great thread, looking forward to some pics of that beauty, madethesene.

By the way, Wind Beneath My Wings was one of the finest songs from that era. Sorry for your loss.
