Price: 1500 USD
Year: 1997 Manufacturer: Ovation Model: 1997 Collector's Edition Case: Original Hard Color: Natural Condition: Mint Description: Unique! - Backed up with excellent quality and design. Ovation started a series of "Collectors'" models in 1982. These instruments had a common theme over the years; that being to stretch the envelope of acoustic guitar design and applied research in pre-amp and pick-up technology. Of course, Ovation's tradition-breaking design from previous years provided the inspiration for this concept going forward. Whether you're a fan of this radical style or not, you must admit that many of the Ovation Guitars produce absolutely astounding tone and volume. As we survey the ever-expanding offerings of new and unique acoustic guitars, from all over the world in recent years, we must pause and recognize that Ovation, with its bowl-shaped, composite body, was revolutionary back in the 60's and, in many ways, was way ahead of its time. This was no accident. This design was the product of brilliant aeronautical engineers who also loved guitars, using a 1930's Martin D-45 for tonal inspiration. This beautiful guitar has been part of a collection that was bought for keeping and saving for the future. I did not polish this guitar for the photographs. It is difficult to see signs that it has been played at all. It has a 25-1/4" scale and a slightly down-sized body. The sound is precise and focused - very clear, and even though it has composite body, it is quite warm sounding. It is refered to as "salon style" with a narrow waist, slotted headstock and maple leaf rosette bordering a round soundhole. Specifications are as follows: Body: Solid Sitka spruce top w/walnut binding and ebony bridge; synthetic/composite bowl-shaped back/sides Neck: 5-piece laminated mahogany/maple with 14/20 fret ebony fingerboard Headstock: Slotted with walnut veneer, 3 per side gold Sperzel tuners, ebony truss rod cover Electronics: Stealth TS pre-amp w/pre-set EQ; Proximity Sensing flexible PCB control panel inside body w/discreet fingertip activated control icons on side of upper bout Case: Original factory issued (TKL); extra high-quality with snug fit luxurious interior (see pix); all candy present. This is a fabulous instrument that is suitable for a collection or, even better, to be played regularly whether professionally or for private enjoyment. $1,500.00 firm Location: Summerlin
