I always liked this solo but never got around to finding
out who played it & what guitar they used. Does anyone
know ?

Well, I don't know if this is the same as the recording or not, but it sounds like it to me. This video is not very good quality. I can't make out who the guitar player is, but he is playing a tele. No surprise there.

I think it is Bob Wooten. Bob joined Johnny after Luther Perkins' died.

This is a later version recorded at Montreaux 1994. Bob Wooton on lead guitar, Dave Roe on bass, Marshall Grant on drums, John Cash jr. on rhythm guitar.

Ghost Riders in the Sky is one of my favorite songs and this is a great version. Thanks for posting this. I was amazed while watching this last post at how much Bob Wooten and Nokie Edwards resemble each other.
