Another Ovation question. This one belongs to a friend of mine. He has been playing it for 20+ years, and it wasn't new when he got it.

It's acoustic only, has the silver label, I think the bowl is smooth, but I cant really remember for sure. But the thing has no logo on the headstock or any clue that one was ever there. Next time I see it I will take a better look at it, but for now this is the only photo I can dig up.



Were there some Ovations with decals that could fall off? This guitar honestly has probably seen every temperature and humidity extreme, many times over and over again. The top is cracked and warped, but it still keeps playing!

Decals didn't "fall off" per se, but for awhile they were using a sort of silk-screen painted logo and it would fade and kind of "rub out" over time.

My first Ovation was a Korean 4861. The decal had faded almost totally away.
I also owned a 1112 that was missing most of the decal due to poor capo storage.
Don't put your capo over the logo.
