This photo is one of three that Carl sent this morning. It shows Jon, Ken and me onstage. As I am singing with my eyes closed, they are clowning around behind me for the camera.
Please notice in this photo my Hofner pick guard is gone. I was constantly taking it off and putting it back on because it was so flimsy. But I can’t tell which Hofner it was. If it’s raised lettering, then it’s the one I still have which I bought second hand in Willmar, MN which was the older of the two. If it’s embossed lettering on the head, then it is the original ’69 Hofner I bought new when I was in The Contents Are:.
Also of note is that it was before I started using a pick so I am thumbing it! Carl wasn’t sure what the venue was, and neither am I.
