Hi guys,

I'm pretty new to the world of Ovation guitars so please pardon this question if it is ill informed.

I'm searching for a new guitar for my collection and there are a couple of Adamas models that have piqued my interest. These are the U681T "Ute" and the 1680.

Both of these are 12 fretters with slotted headstocks.

The only issue is finding one, they seem to be impossible to find.

Anyway, I was wondering if there are any similar models that Ovation or Adamas have released over the years? I am hoping for USA made and sub 2k used.

Thanks for your help!

Have you checked Lost Art Vintage for that Ute?

Hey thanks for the tip, it doesn't look like they have it still, but I sent them a message just to be sure.

I think they only made about 100 Utes and about 70 1680s. I have one of the 70. I wouldn't let mine go for under $2k and I suspect Ute owners are even less likely.

They released a 40th anniversary Adamas which was a 12 fretter, slothead. They may be easier to find, but nowhere near $2k.

Or you could get an Adamas 1198GCF which is a cheaper version than the 40th anniversary model, but more like $3k
