saw "the wrecking crew" last evening at the "museum of making music" in carlsbad, ca (at the NAMM HQ)
lots of beach boys coverage--there is a short cutaway to a picture of carl sitting in a studio holding a fireglo ric. too short for me to tell if it was a 6 or 12 str.
i'd not seen that photo before.
also, short sequence of roger mcguinn talking about how, of all the byrds, only he was proficient enough a musician to play during early recording sessions. crosby, hillman, et al. watched the wrecking crew studio pros get it done.
