An eagle-eyed forum member pointed out that Eric is only playing the 12-string Mosrite acoustic throughout the video. Glen is seen holding the sixer at the end of the song.

I subjected myself to this song one more time to see that this indeed, true! ;)

Cowpoke;

At about 2:29 you can see the longer headstock on the 12'er.

Thanks Wayne. When does Eric switch between the 6 string and the 12 string. I can't tell, it all looks like the same guitar to me! :)

I thought this this would be an interesting video for this thread: Eric Clapton playing both of Glen's Mosrite acoustics, 6 and 12 string during this silly song from the Sumers Brothers Smothers Show in 1968. Glen introduced Cream to the world!

Travel Town museum is located at Griffith Park in LA. It is where the first two pictures in the first topic were taken. The engine was owned by the AT&SF. This engine is one of forty-five built by Baldwin in 1899 for the AT&SF. Originally #891, it was renumbered #664 in 1900. In 1910, it was loaned to the Pecos & Northern Texas Railway for a year but then returned to the AT&SF. It hauled freight on AT&SF's Northern, Southern, Panhandle, Plains and Gulf Divisions, and was still in active service when donated to the museum in 1953. #664 weighs 161,500 lbs. The 98,000 lb tender held 5,000 gallons of water and 9 tons of oil.

Nice find, Wayne...and thanks for sharing that.
Too bad no one ever had the conversation with Semie about his relationship with Glen back then. They HAD to have one. Glen didn't play Mosrites for that long of period of time and he had a slew of them...some with personalized necks.
