It's made with an exotic koa top that really stands out from the usual spruce and, together with the deep bowl Ovation back, delivers really powerful sound with beautiful low-end tone.
If you're looking for a guitar that really stands out from the ordinary, you're definitely on the right track by checking out Ovation guitars.
This guitar was sold new in Australia, and it even comes with its original Stamford case - went to Alan 1961 Maton EG240 C/A Supreme - a really nice thinline (2 1/2" deep) vintage Maton Supreme, and in totally original condition. - an 'under-the-bed' find, and a guitar that displays the heights Australian guitar manufacturing can reach!
- went to Trent 1962 Fender Jaguar - this pre-L vintage Fender Jaguar has been refinished in Shoreline Gold, and carries some later replacement parts, which means it's an affordable way to get into owning a pre-L vintage Fender!
That back design is only the first of Ovation's design innovations.The founder of the company, Charles Kaman, was an aeronautical engineer by trade when he decided to go into the luthier business, and he brought the expertise he had creating high-tech aviation materials along with him.That led to the unique rounded composite back that's found on all of Ovation's guitars, an innovation which delivers great sound and a comfortable playing experience.Here we have a vintage 1966 Fender Bassman head, in good shape.Every luthier has a story, and in Ovation's case it's an especially interesting one.
