While watching a you tube video of Bon Jovi plays Moscow Richie Sambora came out with a triple Ovation guitar. A Mandolin, 6 sting and 12 string all in one Ovation body. WOW I had never seen one. Factory custom shop?

I think I'll keep a bookmark of this on my phone to whip out on those occasions when I run into that certain snobby breed of Ovation nay-sayers-- just in case I don't happen to have any red wine to "accidentally" spill on them at the moment.. or maybe even both if I can.

Love O Fair there is a 1980 Bob Marley video on you tube showing him playing a Ovation Adamas acoustic solo.

Yes, the triple neck was a custom shop order as was the white one Richie also had.

The 1768-X (Sambora's double neck) was available from the factory some years back...for the paltry sum of $8000. 

As you stated the Celebrity double necks are still available, but one of the biggest differences between a Celebrity and the 1768-X is that the neck orientation is reversed--the 12 string neck on the 1768-X is on the treble side. 

Still, all very cool guitars.

Watched Matt Smith play a new custom double-neck built for RS at Namm and took several photos, but Bill asked me to not to post them because Sambora had not yet approved the guitar.

i remember Al mentioning a double neck refurb happening at the factory right before NAMM.  Can't wait to see this guitar.  

Cool stuff!

I have a blue CC doubleneck. All in all it would have been better if it was built in U.S. (it had to undergo several improvements by my luthier to make it even playable) but it is a tremendous guitar.I use to play some open tunings but if you have two necks and a capo you get completely crazy, the easiest, simplest songs are about to grow to sound cathedrals. All these possibilities.. play the 6string in standard tuning with a low C and the 12 string in DADGAD, partial capo on 7th fret, or better the 6string open G, or, or....before you look up the first time it´s dark outside, you are dehydrated and hungry and it´s time for bed..And I´m not talking about playing electric yet..with all these chorus, flanger and other effects this guitar turns into a heavy drug (I just have to mention that both of the guitar preamps are perfectly balanced!). I suffer from hypertension so the guitar better has to be stored in the case most of the time;-)

In 1990 Ovation hosted 'Zero Defect Day' out in the field adjacent to the old factory. There were tours of the factory and it was a gorgeous sunny day. They had a small stage set up and several Ovation endorsers showed up and played with some Ovation factory workers on the stage. John McLaughlin (RIP) and Al Dimeola were there and played...I would say that Richie Sambora created the biggest splash owing to the fact that at that time Bon Jovi was about the biggest rock band on the planet. People from the surrounding area were parking on the access road to the factory and swarming in to catch a view.

All in all it was a wonderful day, they even let us vendors attend. If I could place a pinmark on the pinnacle of Ovation's popularity this would be one of them.

Geostorm98... the event you described almost made a memory for me... and I wasn't even there! What a great day that must have been. It would be nice if they could have something like that again. It's sad that the old building is no longer cranking out guitars, but from what I've seen reported there are a few things happening in there that could also benefit from such a gathering at the current plant next door. Am I right? Are there food, drink and retail shops in the old building now?

I sincerely apologize for mixing up Larry Coryell and John McLaughlin - what a collosal blunder. It was Larry who played at Zero Defect Day. I'll blame it on old age. If a mod could edit my post I would appreciate it and so would John McLaughlin! Enjoy the show in December.
