Hi all,

Bazz here. Was a big Ovation fan fan in my senior year of high school. Borrowed a friend's Legend while I saved up for my very own Custom Legend. Played it to death - wrote lots of songs and played lots of shows before selling it on to a friend at the tender age of 22. I had the Ovation catalogue in the late 80s when I bought my Custom Legend. I loved the photo of the 1987 Collector model. It was well sold out by the time I got the catalogue in '89. I remember posting a letter to Mandolin Bros (well before email) asking to put it on a want list for me.

So 26 years, and a hundred guitars later, I found one, and it's being shipped to me as I write.

This seems like a place that might cheer about it. I'm getting blank stares everywhere else I post about it

Cheers!
Bazz.
