I had a hunch it was from Norwood but I wasn't sure. Thanks Mike!

Hey jay, Glen looks like he's doing an alternative take for the Norwood scene, before he jumps in the bath.

Glen with a Finland made Espana Classical Guitar

I found this random picture of Glen, probably in the 60's, with a Espana nylon guitar...from the web:
"These guitars were imported by my family's long-defunct business, Buegeleisen & Jacobson, which distributed in the US and Canada. The brands Kent, Stewart, Espana, Val-Dez, and Durro (wind) were among their best sellers. The quality of these instruments varied directly in proportion to what market they were targeting. Some, like Espana, had models that were very well made, and now would cost more than $1,000 at retail (some well over $2,000). Others were very promotional, and would compare with least expensive guitars from Japan."
