This is for sale in my neck of the woods:



Serial number 20372 at the usual place.

It has no dots at all on the neck...

What is it?

It is an Adamas SMT unidirectional carbon fiber top with a gloss finish,mid bowl,looks like 2003 model,
They started the SMT line in 1998 with a regular model like you see here and a signature series model they made for melissa etheridge,
I think they were more a stage guitar with the mid bowl,the ME II used a newer preamp she helped design with Ovation ,the OP Pro preamp
Here is a link to a catalog http://ovationtribute.com/Catalogues/1999_Adamas_US_Long_Catalog/19...
