For Sale: 1127-4 GLEN CAMPBELL ARTIST BALLADEER

This is a very early version, serial # E-515 on Bloomfield paper label. This guitar was built during the transition phase from the Glen Campbell (deep) Shiny Bowl to the Glen Campbell Artist and it's a mixed bag of old and new which actually makes it a very, very cool guitar.

The OLD stuff
o 14 degree headstock
o dark stained headstock facing
o larger sized GC truss rod cover (very rare)

The NEW stuff
o Artist depth non-shiny bowl
o Walnut "winged" bridge
o Non inlayed rosette
o Artist VT bracing

Overall great shape, a few little marks here and there but nothing of substance. A small ding on the back of the neck which you can feel a little bit. No cracks or finish checking on the top. A bit of pitting on the tuners. It looks like the original GC Shiny Bowl neck (heel) had to be cut down a bit to fit the Artist depth bowl attachment and there is a very slight visible line but hardly noticeable. For an almost 50 year old guitar it's really in quite amazing shape. Not perfect, but very very nice. The setup is great and it plays and sounds just like an Ovation should.

It is missing the hardshell case and will come in a nicely padded gig bag. I paid $800 for it six months ago but will let it go for a loss just to clear up some much needed space.

Price is $550. + you pay S/H to your house. PM me if interested.

MY APOLOGIES: Somebody emailed me about this guitar while I was away for the summer and I did not know if I still had it or not. Have checked now and indeed I still have it and it is available for $550 plus the shipping.

IMO, the bridge is worth that much. Another Ovation, with a heavy touch of O history, that you will play hell trying to acquire later on.

I've played that guitar. $550 is nothing for it. Really good guitar, really great piece of history....

I am one happy happy camper.
Thank you so very much Beal, you cannot know how special it is for me.
My birth year and a unique Glen Campbell edition to boot.

Notice that Glen uses a strap to keep it form slipping off his knee.
