Thanks, John!

Your info syncs with this labelled photo of Glen Campbell with his guitars (at least some of them!) that fans Jay, Paul and Bluebird had put together and posted previously:

Here is that same photo but without the labels from Glen's website:

Considering that Glen used this guitar on his last tour as well as the prominent placement of the G&L Comanche in this photo, it must have been a more recent favorite.

When one of our guitar experts pops back in on the forums, we can ask if Glen had the G&L customized in any way.

Of the guitars pictured in the photo here, do you have a favorite?

Yes, that's it. The pickups have a staggered pattern that is unknown to me.

Hi, john, welcome to Glen Campbell Forums!
Great question.
Are you referring to this guitar?
