Always liked "Ghost Riders in the Sky." Something in that chord progression I think.

Glen on what looks like an Ovation electric 12. I love the fake-mandolin thing he plays near the end.

And Steve, do you think Roy has flat-wounds on his Tele style guitar?

Thanks for posting that Steve. A pair of great players for sure.

Fun to see Grampa there at the beginning too.

What kind of 12 string is that? It looks like an Ovation headstock but it's an electric?

I did a brief google search for Ovation 12 string electric and came up with nothing. It looks very similar to a Dano 12 string, but the headstock certainly looks Ovation. Any idea of the model?

It's a late-70's Ovation Viper Glen Campbell Bluebird solidbody, custom-made with a 12-string neck and quasi-Adamas blue sunburst - don't forget Glen had an endorsement deal with Ovation at the time, and could get anything he wanted; here's the 6-string version:



FYI the Campbell family loaned the original guitar to Ovation in 2018 for a series of USA Custom Shop recreations, of which only 10 six strings and 5 twelve-string guitars were made...
