I only have what info everyone else has access to here on the forum, which seems to be conflicting.

First, the model 1867 Legend shows to have been made between 1990-2001.
That info can be found here: http://www.ovationfanclub.com/megabbs/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=32...

HOWEVER.. the serial number in the photo shows that your particular 1867 Legend was made in 1985.
That info can be found here: http://www.ovationfanclub.com/megabbs/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=32...

So I guess this doesn't help much. Sorry. Thought I'd post it anyway.

I don't know about the chart showing that 1867s were made between 1990-2001. That doesn't jive with what the catalogs say. Look about halfway down on this page http://www.ovationtribute.com/Catalogues/Ovation%201985%20Catalog/O... and you'll see that in 1985, Ovation offered the 1867 (super shallow bowl cutaway Legend).

Look all around at http://www.ovationtribute.com It is a tremendous resource of Ovation material going back to the 1960's. It was put together by our friend Jerome, who lives in France. I have been all thru it and still enjoy going back and browsing.

The chart on Jerome's "Date Your Ovation" section of his site also shows that serial number 336012 would have fallen in the 1985-86 range. I don't know if he was using the same chart as the second link that Love O Fair posted. My guess is the chart in the first link is wrong.

Thank you for good information.
I see my 1867 Legend was product in 1985.
I have a price list attached.
It shows 1867 Legend was sold in 1984-2001.
(see attached image)
Sorry for I forgot where does the list come.

@Mark in Boise - "My guess is the chart in the first link is wrong."

Yep. I ended up thinking so too.
