So, I need a new or professionally refurbished OP 24.

 

I guess it can be an OP 24+/+C if they are the same dimensions...

 

Here is a pic of my Mothership-modified OP 24 install:

 

OP 24 in Ovation

 

Thank you!

alpep - I would love to buy it. I will also see about repairing the "old" one too. Someone else might need it down the road.

2wheeldrummer - Yes, I saw that too. However, there are no dimension info on that website. Are all the OP 24's the same size?

You posted your question and photo about the size of the OP24 in the section for Q&A with Ovation Guitars. I think it was set up to communicate with the factory, so we can't respond.
Anyway, the 24+ is just a bit longer, maybe 1/8 inch. It shouldn't be too difficult to cut the hole bigger, if necessary.

Mark in Boise - Thanks. I wanted to know the dimension difference to keep my options open. However, no cutting will happen to this beauty:

 

 

Worst case scenario, I'm checking with Mike Piera "analogmike" to see if he will do the repair...

Hey, thanks! It originally looked a bit different:

 

The top was maple(very pale) with a red-white-blue binding...

 

 

Apparently, it was made as an endorsement instrument.

 

The deal fell through and they just added it to the inventory. Then I walked in...

 

The Model is: 2718-4 W/ serial # 48xxxx - Yeah, 2718, not 1718...

 

I'll check out that group in FB. A certain amazing person on here is looking too...

 

Thanks!

After a bit of checking and the fact that the label is hand written, maybe it could be L718. Hmmm. That would make more sense...

The mount is glued to the inside of the bowl and the pre-amp is bolted to the mount.

To remove the pre-amp, gently lift the thin plastic face plate from the front of the amp. It's stuck down with pressure-sensitive adhesive.

Under it, you'll find 4 screws. Remove these screws and the front circuit board can be unplugged and the pre-amp removed from the inside of the mount. Be sure to support the pre-amp as you loosen the screws so it doesn't fall out.

Well, the mothership literally glued it to the inside. It’s ok, was able to remove, replace and all is well.

I’ll be having this one referb’d and available this year...

Thanks!
