HAGSTROM Red Plastic electric 6
(on all rsm recordings 1975-1976)





Moore's very first guitars were: - - - - -
[1] a very cheap no-name black/white-trim semi-hollowbody single-cutaway one-pickup. Gift from my father 1964. At 12 years old I loved it. The instrument is long lost and forgotten (never photographed).

[2] a cheap nylon-string classical guitar, unknown brand, learned to play on this baby, soon deceased. Appears on several earliest rsm recordings (NT01).

[3] Gibson SG Junior; burgundy finish, one pick-up. Used on all rsm (and victor lovera) recordings from 1971-1974. Body later modified by sawing both cutaways to form tear-drop shape and handpainted with turquoise Liquitex paint, then accidentally broken in two when dropped on stage end of show at Ethos Street Party gig, downtown Nashville Sept '74)

[4] Aria double neck 6 and 12 string, SG copy. Bought for roadwork with the Swings, 1976. Appears on a scant few rsm songs of the era.

[5] Rickenbacker 6 string electric. Traded Aria for it in Frankfort KY 1977, still in possession and in use. Used on all rsm recordings 1977 to present. (pictures coming soon)

[6] Various acoustic guitars, borrowed from friends. From cheapo Penco brand (the very one which was famously decorated by newspaper food ads) and unknowns to Bolger's to Paul Carvalho's gorgeous jumbo Gibson J200.

[7] Ovation Preacher 6 string electric. Borrowed (permanently) from Uncle Harry Palmer 1978, stored in closet. Appears on rsm sessions 2000 to present.

[8] Harmony black acoustic, a beaut at first, until the neck quickly started to bow, and it's now only can be used for lap slide work. Gift from KO.

[9] White jumbo Mitchell acoustic, gift from Bolger.

[10] RSM's celebrated Union Jack designed Fernandes electric, usually preferred on current (mid-2000s) sessions. An eBay won gift donated from Billy Anderson.
