    Quick one - is the Gibson ES-330 the one Glenn uses here?

    It looks like it.

    I see the three different guitars. Don F on the stratacaster, Joe on telecaster and Glenn probably on the ES330.

    Yup! He also uses it in the How Long music video IIRC.

    It's a Caramel Burst ES-330.

    The difference between the 330 and the 335 is the pickups. 330 has P-90 single coils and the 335 has PAF humbuckers.

    I was looking at the stratocaster and telecaster and they kinda look the same other than how it made. One is pointy and the other one is pointy and curve.

    Is that the only difference?

    Very different guitars.

    The Stratocaster has 3 single coil pickups, the Telecaster has two. The Stratocaster has a whammy bar (tremolo) on it, the Telecaster does not. The Tele is more "twangy" and the Strat is a bit more IMO nasally sounding. The Tele came first in 1950 (back then it was called the Broadcaster) and the Strat came in 1954. Tele is a bit more of a simplistic instrument, the Strat is more modern and elegant. I prefer Teles but this is an Eagles thread.

    What I should have said was the setlist reproduced by GL where the only guitars listed are the ones played by Glenn & that is why I thought he may have written it himself. I thought the writing looked similar to other handwriting I have seen of his apart from autographs (and please don't ask me to identify it, but I have seen it).

    The notations are as follows:

    I Can't Tell You Why - Rhodes (electric piano)
    One Of These Nights - LP (Les Paul)
    The Boys Of Summer - Tele
    In The City - LP
    Already Gone - OB (Old Black)
    Love Will Keep Us Alive - 6
    No More Cloudy Days - 6 (this presumably means 6 string Takamine)
    You Belong To The City - Unreadable, but it does have a notation
    Walk Away - LP
    Sunset Grill - Unreadable but the first word is 'black'
    Dirty Laundry - Unreadable but seems to have LP at the beginning
    Heartache Tonight - OB
    Life In The Fast Lane - OB

    Don't want to take the thread too off-topic with a handwriting analysis, but here is one sample of Glenn's handwriting that some of us are familiar with. Honestly, I don't see much similarity but, again, I'm no expert.



    And don't you just love Glenn's pre-show quizzes. Now, if that don't take your mind of geetars, I don't know what will!

    Wouldn't YBTTC have been Rhodes as per ICTYW? Those and Wated Time were Glenn's only pieces on piano in F1 (ASWTDID was keyboard / dancing).

    Yes, but the writing on the photo is too unclear for me to read it. Actually it sort of looks like 'clav' as in clavinet.
