Really love the wah riff on this Mac Davis track, "Lucas Was a Redneck". Whole song has a swampy Tony Joe White feel.
Pretty sure the picker (in country they're "pickers", not "players") is Travis Wammack, who was also an early (pre-Maestro Fuzz-Tone) fuzz pioneer with "Scratchy" (he's popped up in the 60's Fuzz-Tone thread). Lots of cool country wah in the 70s, just like there was lots of cool country fuzz in the 60s. Some really funky stuff on Porter Waggoner's 70s records, too.

Nice Mac Davis cut, Horsey.

And speaking of Travis Wammack, here's one of my favorites from him:
(No wah on it, but it's killer anyway.)

^ That's a mighty sweet sound, chank. Very relaxed but still ultra-funky :tu:

Yeah, that's the Philly sound, Horsey.

It's the session guys who were in MFSB.

Here's a slightly later track, a little closer in sound to what's known as "Disco":
