Fine playing, great performance. Thanks for posting this video...
Seems like an F-30 isn't it ? (I know he has -or had- one). He has the Chesterfield inlay on the headstock - I haven't - but apart from it, it looks pretty much the same as mine. Glad to see the guitar in action in skilled hands...

Yes, that is his "F-30 Special" number 2 (Braz back and sides and Grover Rotomatics) from around 1967 he is using in the video. You can identify it by the 3 (and other) unique spots on the pickguard which his otherwise identical number 1 does not have.

That was great. So easy going, casual
and natural the way he plays and sings. He is a great storyteller.
