Ovation Classic Acoustic, Vintage 1967 USAOvation
Here’s something you don’t see everyday! Up for sale is a vintage Ovation Classic, one of the earliest models we’ve seen! The serial number puts this guitar between 1967 and 1968, and was released before Ovation’s patent was secured. The Ovation Classic features a Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany & Maple Reinforced neck, and Ovation’s classic bowl back. Unlike modern Ovations with rougher polycarbonate backs, the back on this guitar is constructed with Lyrachord, the first composite developed by founder Charles Kaman when he moved from building helicopters to the world of guitars. This guitar is light and resonant, with a clear and open tone, and strong harmonic presence. It’s fairly loud, and very clear sounding. Whether you’re in it for the history or the tone, this baby has plenty of both!
