Made famous by names as diverse as Glen Campbell, Tony Rice, David Byrne (Talking Heads), and Paul Simon among others, the Ovation has remained an iconic guitar design since they burst onto the scene in the late 1960s.

This particular example is finished in a striking sunburst finish on the spruce top, and has the classic ‘deep bowl’ back. Fan braced for that signature Ovation sound. This early USA made example is in generally good condition for its age. The top sees a crack which has been professionally repaired and is stable. The headstock has also seen a crack which has been professionally stabilised by luthier Daniel Hoban (this was never a full break).

All things considered a great example of a highly idiosyncratic ‘time-piece’ an interesting foray into the height of electric acoustic guitar design of the late 60s.
