You are a search wizard :) I believe that's him with his Teisco T-60 guitar?

Do you happen to know the filename of that other missing photo? That's how I found this one.
The caption of the one I was thinking of is the same as the one you pulled up so I must have misread the description :)

I have an appearance of Glen when he was on the "Mike Douglas Show" in 1965 & it looks like he playing that guitar in the photo below.

Oh that sounds incredibly interesting! I have nothing to trade with, but is there a way to watch this or see pictures?

54ST ... Glen playing strats

Post by jay » Sat Apr 07, 2018 8:46 pm

""Glen playing Stratocaster guitars during the 60s and 70s""

Glen was playing Mosrites during the mid 60's, up until Ovation started making electric guitars for him. He certainly played electric Ovations religiously in the 70's. It would not surprise me to find him playing a Strat here and there during that time, but when Fender sent him packing, he showed his loyalties to Semie, then Charlie.

I am pretty sure this is the picture in question. Is Glen playing a strat here?
I always had the impression that this picture was taken during the recording sessions of the Rhinestone Cowboy album. But I have no way to prove it.

Yes that's a Strat, such a cool picture, thanks! Do you happen to have more pics of him with this type of guitar? I think the other one that's not online anymore was from a live concert?

The first Fender we see Glen with is the Tele, I think...but in the mid 60's he is seen with a strat.

Forrest White tried to push Glen to Don Randall at Fender to let Glen be a Fender demonstrator...and Randall blew him off. That decision was probably hard to swallow beginning around 68/69

So Glen probably went to Semie Mosely right after that and Semie took care of him...up until Charlie Kaman and Glen hooked up. Glen played Ovations electrics until the late 80's and then went back to the strat...then he went to G&L's version of the strat.

Glen is playing a strat in that picture.
