Seems like the consensus is that the proto's were killer guitars, while what ended up being produced fell short. A lot changed on the way to production.

Interesting. Never run across one of these, though I have played the Rainsong carbon-fibre acoustic. It would be intriguing to play the two back to back some day.

Have to work on that.

It appears that Glen got one of the first Adamas "Q" prototypes! There were around half a dozen that were playable of the dozen or so that were made. The ones that finally hit production were quite a bit different than the proto's.

Found this cool 1999 interview from the Arkansas Democrat Gazette with Glen. From recalling that his dad always called him "Glen Travis" to a planned but never released album "Glen Campbell Sings Glen Campbell". Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Jane Seymour shares projects under consideration. This one caught my eye:
I'm hoping to take our documentary on the late Glen Campbell's last tour and struggle with Alzheimer's and turn it into a feature film on his entire career.

Original post from Glen Campbell Forums on facebook by Dee
September 22, 2017

Game, set, match! Forty-four years ago this week, Glen Campbell helped to “warm up the court” for the historic “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match with Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs held at the Houston Astrodome in Texas.

Hours prior to the big match, Glen swapped his guitar for a tennis racket to play in a pre-Battle of the Sexes tournament also held at the Dome with crooner Andy Williams, actors Robert Stack, Rod Steiger and Janet Leigh, and other tennis-loving Hollywood stars.

Glen is pictured here with world heavyweight boxing champion George Foreman before he (Foreman) presented the winner's trophy and a $100,000 check to the victorious Billie Jean King:
