    Cass Elliot, John Denver and a beautiful Guild 12 string

    I know its dated (August 19, 1972 I was 12) however there is something about their voices that are timeless. Beautiful song and a sweet Guild 12 string. Enjoy

    Busted out in SoFlo waiting on a Guild,

    Very cool. I see this particular show was broadcast when I was in Boot Camp.

    I like the short speech she did before the song too.

    Y'know, it looks big enough, but, I'm not sure; it's hard to tell. It could be an early F-512. It's not high-def enough to see the expected herringbone trim. What a magnificent axe anyway. Sounds just like the one he played on the "Bells of Rhymney" recording I always listen to. Mama Cass and JD, that's a great combination.

    Yes, this exact one one, you see the unique pattern on the pickguard clearly in the video.




    His other F-612 had serial number OD-101, with the fancy vine inlays.

    I just watched this earlier this week. I wanted to see and hear a F-612 played by somebody who could do it justice. Very cool. I always loved his music and feel he was under rated and under appreciated for both his guitar playing, song writing and vocals. Wish he was still with us.
