    Description

    Glen Campbell Personally Owned and Stage Played Dobro Californian Resonator Guitar. An acoustic-electric Dobro resonator guitar, originally with a cherry finish (since faded to a light orange on the front of the body from years of display), custom made for Campbell, designed in the early 1960s by Mosrite's Semie Moseley for Dobro, with "Glen Campbell" spelled in pearl inlays down the entirety of the fretboard, a 10.5" chrome resonator, Mosrite-shaped headstock with Dobro nameplate, two single coil pickups, and volume and tone control knobs with a three-way selector switch. Frets and body show play wear, with moderate scratching and belt-buckling to the back of the body. Includes non-original hard case.

    Though any Mosrite / Dobro Californian is a rare find, this beautiful instrument is the absolute pinnacle of these unique guitars. Campbell not only played this Californian on stage - most notably on a television appearance where he performed a breathtaking version of "Gentle on My Mind" - but the master player/singer/songwriter also used this Dobro on several sessions as a part of the legendary Wrecking Crew studio band! For aficionados of music and musicianship from Country, Pop, and Folk to Soul, Surf, and Psychedelia, the importance of this guitar, and the man who played and loved it, cannot be overstated.
