Gillian's Found Photo #35

copyright G. McCain archives
Despite the Simon & Garfinkle poster on the wall, I think this little gal's getting ready to rock.
Perhaps she was a fan of Simon's early, rockin' sides (True Taylor, Tico & the Triumphs, Tom & Jerry). Is that a Hagstrom she's playing? I believe she's making a gang signal with her right hand. Anyway, innocent though she may look, a few years on the road and I think she'll end up
looking like the gal in Gillian's Found Photo #32. Not visible in the shot, but I'd bet she's wearing boots from Biba, just like #32. Definitely not a frontwiper.

Definately not Hagstrom. Italian or maybe Japanese.

From the looks of the guitar it's probabaly a Teisco- or one of their millions of little off-shoot brands. I own one similar to the one pictured, it's branded 'Encore' but it's probably a Teisco product.

Here's a fun "Guitar Porn" website to check out for more:

Looks like a 'Kent,' a cheapo semi-hollow that promises more than it delivers. I saw an entire store full of them in Pike County, AL a dozen years ago -- they were budget guitars and they'd been hanging there since the late '60's. They still had their original registration slips & sales tags; sadly, the necks were all warped, the frets all rusty.

Still. All the knobs! All the pickups! Big spoon-style vibrato! You know you'd sound JUST LIKE LINK WRAY if you could find one for the right price in playable condition. I hope the girl in the picture sounded like Link with this rig.

between the cheapo guitar and that 1960's dress, she looks like she's auditioning for the Feminine Complex (all-girl group from Nashville, ca. '68, probably around the same time this photo was taken!)
