I received my new 2020 Adamas I 2087GT-8 Custom Reverse Blue Burst, Thursday, November 5th, three days after it appeared in the Guitar Gallery. The Adamas, with an October 27, 2020 serial number, arrived in flawless condition and is a credit to the five or so Ovation Custom Shop craftsman in New Hartford, Connecticut. With its Deep Contoured Bowl, the guitar is comfortable and stays put just about as well as a conventional wooden guitar. The Adamas features a balanced tone with a crystalline-like shimmer that would amplify and record with minimal EQ. Acoustically, if a Martin HD-28 and an Adamas 2080 NWT are sledgehammers, think of the Adamas as a jeweler's hammer that IMHO would be a joy as an acoustic guitar for jazz-/rock-/and pop-artists to play. Amplified, with its Ovation OCP-1 Pickup/Op Pro Studio Preamp system, the Adamas I 2087GT-8 can be just about anything a player needs or may want it to be in many live-performance situations.

Lucky, lucky you!! I like to look at new things like your guitar and wonder where they will be 50, 75, 100 years down the road. There is no reason why a instrument of this solid quality shouldn't make it through a very long history in grand style and shape. But as for the here and now.. congratulations!

Congrats SpruceTop! Thanks for sharing pics of your jeweler's hammer! I've got a sledge hammer (1680NWT) that I bought used 2 years ago still waiting for me in the States! Suffering a bit from NGD envy, but nothing a little "O time" won't cure. Your 2087 is a beauty, and it's great to see a new USA O getting the respect they deserve!

@arumako - >>>still waiting for me in the States!<<<

No.. wait. I thought you had all kinds of airline gate agents in the USA that you wink nicely at from behind your sly sunglasses who smuggle your stuff to Japan for you. And to think that all this time we've thought you are some super operative type who knows Bond... James Bond.

I just noticed the Adamas models being offered by Sweetwater about six weeks ago and had been watching since for when mine came in. Currently, Sweetwater has another Adamas 2087GT-8 on order and they're awaiting an Adamas MD80 NWT Cutaway Mid-depth Contour which should arrive any day now.

Please note that Sweetwater's specs list the 2087GT-8 as having Adamas X-bracing but it actually has, as the Ovation site lists it, Adamas Fan-bracing. The Adamas MD80 NWT does have the Adamas X-bracing as listed by both Sweetwater and Ovation.

P.S.A. Ovation Adamas MD80 Cutaway Mid-depth Contour Acoustic-electric - Natural Woven Texture now in stock but still in the 55-point evaluation so actual photos of this guitar are not yet displayed: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/AdMD80DCNWT--ovation-adamas-...

Having had this Adamas I 2087GT-8 for a bit over two weeks, I find that it's either me or the guitar or a combination of the two but it's getting louder and fuller in tone the more I play it. It would seem counter-intuitive given the materials the guitar is crafted from but it does have a walnut neck and fingerboard and an inner layer of birch wood within the carbon-fiber inner and outer layers of the soundboard. Anyway, the more I play this guitar, the more I like it! Has anyone else had similar experiences with their Adamas guitars? Thanks.
