Well spotted jay, I bet someone had to pull some strings to get that done.

Hmmm...is it really an Ovation?

Back in 1968, Glen released the album "Hey LIttle One" and did a photoshoot for the album cover.

The guitar he used for that photo session was the 1966/69 Mosrite/Dobro Richmond D-50e ((click the link to read more about this cool guitar))

This is the picture that ended up on the "Hey LIttle One" album cover.

Glen's new "Official" website http://www.officialglencampbell.com/ is showcasing this photo in their banner (for now):

Great picture...except....that guitar is a Mosrite, but someone has attached an Ovation headstock to the Mosrite neck.

Here is the original photo from the photo session (you can see that it was cropped with a little bit of the Mosrite truss rod cover showing):

All I can think of is that they wanted Glen to have a full guitar in that picture, and thought that model of guitar was an Ovation and photoshopped the Ovation head on it. You can fool some of the people....
