Adamas 1187-8 OFC I, No. 5 of 12, slot head, standard width neck, two-knob electronics, walnut tuner buttons, includes never used custom shoulder strap specifically made for this model, OHC. $3,695.

Adamas 2080 OFC II, No. 5 of 8, standard width neck, deep contour bowl cutaway, Dimeola boost button, Op-Pro electronics, OHC.  $3,695.

Ovation 2078 LX FKOA-OSH, No. 5 of 12, 1-3/4” wide neck slot head, VIP electronics, (faux?) tortoise shell tuner buttons, OHC. $2,395.

I am the original owner of the OFC I and LAVKOA models, and the second owner of the OFC II model which I purchased from the original owner.  All three are limited run models conceptualized and sold by Al to members of the OFC.  Although I have played each maybe a total of only 15 minutes in the over 10 years that I have owned them, each has hung on the wall of my temperature and humidity controlled band room throughout thsee years and have been subject to thousands of hours of amplified music vibrations.  Needless to say, they have all opened up.  All are like new.   Each will be thoroughly cleaned with your choice of a new set of D’Addario light or medium strings installed.  I have enjoyed owning them but have over 50 guitars in my collection and it is time to pass some on to their next caretaker.  I know that my asking prices are not reflective of the value of what these amazing instruments may be worth.  I don’t buy guitars for investment purposes and am not looking for profit.  I just want to provide an opportunity for other OFC members to share the ownership experience of some rare and historic instruments.  I’ll even accept best offers.   Buyers are responsible for shipping and insurance.  Photos to follow (if and when I can get it figured out). Additional photos upon request.

No neon yet. Not dismantling the band room, nor the shop. Just cutting back to more reasonable numbers. As the Wabbit once accurately said, it is difficult walking around without getting bonked by so many guitars hanging from the ceiling. And a sale is pending on the OFC-I.

Hey OMA, I intend to drop the prices in a couple of weeks and every few weeks thereafter until they’re sold. Wait long enough and they’ll be free.

Lots of great memories surrounding those OFC guitars. Mine's been hanging there with a set of strings to remind me that they need to be changing. It's been that way for a couple of months. I need to get back to playing.

You're not the only one ... though a #47 RI would also be as neat as unaffordable.

Why wait, just send me one of them now! Because I'm nice, I'll stump for the postage to Oz.

S/H is on you.

My plan is to continue lowering the asking prices every few weeks or so until they’re sold. Hold out long enough and I’ll be giving them away!

I can only think of two possible reasons why the OFC II hasn’t already sold;

1. Not many people have had a chance to play/hear one, therefore very few know how spectacular they are.

2. I already own one.
