Hi Leo,
Thanks for the comprehensive view of the 1598 MERB. I't's definitely on the short-list and it's also more in line with my planned budget. Interesting comments re the IF strings. I have not tried them.
Best regards
Mick

Ya right it was gone within hours of posting. 

There is one more 1658-4 on reverb ;-) and nicest 1659-4 on the eBay (last belongs to OFCer I through, possibility to save 10% at least)

Best,

Alex

Guys,

I've found this for sale in the UK

OVATION GLEN CAMPBELL 12 STRING.
ORIGINAL 1981 (292*** SERIAL).

It's a slothead, brown deepbowl by the look of it, big oak leaf rosette, GC signature on TR cover and looks mint.

Is this a rare guitar and what would it cost in the US?

Cheers

Mick

The GC 12 strings are getting harder to find but they're available.
There are 2 listed on Reverb right now one for $650 one for $500

Adamas 1688. And Elite 1758. Better pay little more and get one in good condition. (If you are very lucky and find a 1538 grab it).But if you ever played a 1688 you will not be satisfied with any other 12string guitar.

Thanks guys. From what you said, this one seems expensive at £995 (about $1200). The search continues!!!!

I owned an Ovation 12 string open head deep bowl from 1977 and I never thought I would find another acoustic that would sound as good both acoustically and electrically. Then I had the pleasure of purchasing an Adamas 1685-8 12 string and fell in love all over again. It sounds better feels better and smoother. Both are excellent but the Adamas is so much better. My only regret is not spending the extra 300 and getting the Super Adamas because I've always wanted one but I just didn't have it. So I would recommend either but if I had to make a choice I'd keep my Adamas.

I missed a used Adamas at a local guitar shop recently while I was abroad on holiday which was annoying. Alex, I have sent a message to the seller in the e-bay link and asked if they would be prepared to ship to the UK. Fingers crossed it's a yes, and we might be in business.

Didn't get it. The guy came back to me about the shipping to UK in the early hours here, so I never made a bid. It sold for $1,675. If I add £420 for import tax and $100 for shipping, it would cost $2,200 in total. We continue.....

I was hoping you were the one who won it,somebody got a good price although the fretboard looked pretty dry.

Have you considered getting a brand new one,Ovation is making new Adamas guitars in New Hartford,I'm not sure what 12 strings might be available but if you figure a used adamas 1688 12 string has been going for around $3000 on feebay it could we worth it to splurge and get a brand spankin new one in your choice of color,I'm trying to save so I can get a Adamas 1588 12 string cutaway otherwise I would have bid on that 1685.

A brand spanker would be lovely but I expect would be expensive. I'll keep it in mind but if I did go this way, I'd look to time it to coincide with a visit to the US.

Hi
Any interest in an 'as new' 1981 Glen Campbell 12 String (1618) in UK (Bournemouth)?
I bought it some years ago from a senior executive of a well known telecoms co. who'd owned it from new. He used it little - as have I - but he polished both guitar - and case(!).
He removed the pickup and controls but they are in the case and can be reinstalled easily.
I attach some pics.
If you'd like a look, give me a bell.
Regards
Adrian 07786341090.
