    Eddie may well have used the 6120 on summertime blues but the main guitar on this was a martin d18 :)

    There is a video on YouTube with Dave Davies (Kinks) using an early Double Cut Firebird on "All the day and all of the night" tune.

    The Byrds recorded "Mr. Spaceman," and David Crosby did play a Gretsch. You were partially right.

    Pretty sure this is TOTP, thus lipsynched. That's why there are no amps to be seen. I wonder what songs Dave used this guitar on for recording.

    Oh Yeah. I know. Of course. - Like they're not plugged in. It's obvious.

    I've been impressed enough with Ray and Dave Davies's Integrity that I figured the likelihood of them going so far as using a different guitar for their openly public show was puny enough as to be worthy of overlooking.

    But there are plenty of bogus types 'out there' who would be so disingenuous. - So yes, - it's obvioulsy 'possible.' - For absolute accuracy, it's worth mentioning.

    I'm not sure that dancing around with a different guitar than on the recording signals any loss of integrity or authenticity. It was a genre of the moment. The Clash refused to go on TOTP because they didn't want to lipsynch, but plenty of artists whose integrity I don't question did in those days. Doesn't mean they are Milli Vanilli. Given that, for all I know he just grabbed the guitar nearest him when he left for the studio. Thing is, I bet he actually did use it for some recordings and shows. I'd love to know which. Musgrove Hillbillies or Village Green Preservation Society? The lilting lead line on Waterloo Sunset has some twang...

    I was never big into them.. however the “only” Buffalo Springfield album I have has Mr Spaceman on it. I. Sure it’s one of those later years re-recordings and put out due to record label obligations or royalty issues. Hence my assumption it was B.S.
