Elsewhere are two thread memorializing Glen Campbell's career. This post is not about that.



It's the observation that Campbell regularly played a very odd assortment of guitars. Yes, he brought out the usual suspects--Strat, ES-335--but he was more likely to play really strange instruments on stage, Mosrite, ugly Ovation electrics that I've never seen anyone else play, weird Fender Jaguar imitations (what is that guitar that starts out the clip above?), Fender Jazzmasters, G&L Commaches. Hamer 12-strings.

I had the same thought yesterday -- I remember him playing a Danelectro aswell (more recently). Wichita Lineman is played on a baritone ...can't play your clip in work but looking forward to hearing it later. He certainly was a top "all rounder" guitarist. I have a song at home from a John Peel playlist, I can't remember the band but it was some Nuggets type psych band and (pre-fame) Glen plays an amazing Spanish guitar solo on the track thats the best thing about the song.
