Very few, would have had the 5-point bridge found on the first generation shiny bowls. 143156126,594,392,65...

This picture shows a stock Mosrite Mark 1 Double Neck and Glen's. You can clearly see that Semie had shaped the base of t...

Re: H.C. “Texas Slim” Lasater: Glen Campbell's First Bandleader

Re: Glen Campbell on YouTube
