This is not mine but I thought it was interesting and something I'd never heard of before. It's a travel/backpacking guitar made by Ovation for Early Winters. It's newly listed on the Sacramento Craig's List for $40:

I don't think that's an Ovation.

I saw that one pop up, too. An interesting little dude, but I think I'd want to see something from the manufacture that says it is made by Ovation/Kaman if that fact were the clincher on going to check it out or purchasing it. Even a close-up photo of the label would help.

Ovation actually did make a small one like that, but I think only as an Applause. When I was looking for a travel guitar for my daughter, I opted for the slightly larger one. I think it was an AA12. It at least sounded like a guitar, although not a very good one.

From my understanding the "Early Winters" travel guitar was made by KAMAN, but not Ovation.
KAMAN made "Montana" and "Sierra" cheap woodbox guitars...
As well as drums and stands and all kinds of stuff.

Also... That "Early Winters" is not a lyrachord round back.
HERE is an old listing on eBay.
It is just a woodbox.

Applause had the AA10 Voyager.

Thanks for the correction on the manufacturer. I was just going by the ad and what I read on several postings on other forums after Googling around.

Tracked it down.. Early Winters travel guitar, manufactured in Korea, by Kaman, and branded for the Seattle Backpack Company. Body and neck made together from one, solid piece of wood.

On the Applause Voyager.. well, okay, I guess I'd like to have one if I discovered it packed inside a desert island survival kit, but a friend got one for his young kids to learn on and wean from (circa early 90's), and the top quickly cracked into pieces from being cheap, moist, short-aged wood. A $50 parlor beater of any brand would have been a better sounding, longer lasting instrument. The Early Winters may.. may.. be a better-built piece than the Voyager.
