In the early years (70 to 74) Leonard was playing a spanish flamenco Conde guitar (he told us in the chat). In the 1976 and 1979/80, he was playing an Ovation (classical) model. In the 1985 and 1988 tour he played the Gibson Chet Atkins model, and in 1993 a Godin (always nylon strings) model. In some tv shows we maybe saw him with a folk model guitar, but I don't think he used it many times. In the records his sound was always nylon.
Looking at the IOW dvd I saw that Leonard used (as we knew) a flamenco spanish guitar. But I was surprised to see that it was different than the one used in the 1972 and 1974 tours (that seems to be a Conde Hermanos model). Does anyone know what model did Leonard use on the sixties (it is already on the Newport pictures with Judy Collins or Joni Mitchell and later during the 1970 tour).
Maybe this question doesn't seem so important and is anyway too much specific for most of his fans, but I confess I am really passioned by the materiel questions (mainly guitars). Sorry if this topic has already been discussed. Apologizes from a guitar maniac. I met Leonard 3 times in my life and ddespite of all my courage I have been each time so terrified that I forgot to ask this question directly to him.
Maybe some persons close to him may satisfy my curiosity.
Thanks and regards
