Re: Epiphone Zephyr Deluxe Regent

Yes...Jerry and Chet, Jerry and Glen...Jerry seemed to bring out the picker in both of them. Jerry is playing a Godin, I believe and Chet is playing a Gibson Chet Atkins Country Gent. Chet had become dissatisfied with Gretsch due to poor workmanship, so he signed with Gibson and they made the Countr...

Re: Epiphone Zephyr Deluxe Regent

Mike, Thank you. I think that other than the missing leather jacket, the guitar is in the very same condition, in that HOF picture, that it was when Glen last played it in the 60's, except for the 5th fret marker, which looks like it was repaired from the time the portrait and stair pictures were ma...

T he Zephyr De Luxe Regent was Epiphone’s second-from-the-top electric guitar produced from the late 1940s through the mid ’50s.

I...

Re: Glen's History with Ovation Guitars

Mike, now is the time to buy. Decent older Ovations are becoming harder and harder to come by. If you just want to add a pickup, K&K, Fishman, Baggs, as well as others, actually make decent pickups that would work in your guitar, where the jack is in the strap end pin. The 1127 has a deep Ovation he...

Glen Campbell's Teisco “Monkey Grip” T-60

Teisco was a Japanese manufacturer of affordable (cheap) musical instruments from 1948 until 1969. They were imported into the US sometime around 1950 and were often rebranded by other "affordable" guitar companies. Teisco typically copied the popular guitar designs, but the T-60 was an original des...

Glen Campbell's Mosrite D100 Californian

I n the early days, all of Mosrite’s guitars were hand made custom orders. Mosrite could well have remained a small company, making guitars by special order, but Semie Moseley loaned a guitar to Nokie Edwards, of the Ventures, to use on some recording sessions and within a year the Ventures had sig...

Re: Can You Identify These Guitars?

Headstock says it is a Mosrite 335 knockoff. It has a thinner body and bigger pickguard than the one in the BW picture. Depending on when this photo was taken, it might be a Gibson body, with one of Semie's necks on it. He was known to do that when he first got started.

Glen Campbell's Martin D-18

Of all the acoustics Glen has played in his career, the Martin D18, that he used in the early 60's, as a session musician, appears to have been one of his favorites. One of the stories told is that in the early/mid 60's Glen was playing golf with a guy that pulls a Martin D18 out of his trunk in the...
