I have two of these so letting one go. A few years ago the guitar went back to the mothership to have a crack repaired and the top was refinished in the process. The area that was repaired is as smooth as the rest of the top -- it was fantastic job. During repair the epaulettes were replaced to what I believe are the same ones fitted to the Adamii. This thing plays like a champ and works as intended.

$1150 to the lower 48 + S&H

While checking out the electronics after I'd received an inquiry, it was discovered that when plugged into the stereo jack, the A and B strings do not come through the amp. When plugged into the mono jack, all strings ring through the amp. I only play my acoustics acoustically and it's been sometime since I had plugged it in -- probably when I first received it. With that in mind, I'm reducing the price to $1050.

That's an interesting combination of silent strings. The stereo pickup is odd/even strings, so one wouldn't expect the 2nd and 5th to be silent but the remainder working in stereo, while all work in mono.

The 1537 is a really nice guitar. That's a great price, and if I hadn't found mine a few years ago I'd be on this one. Good luck with the sale.

You're right, it's the G and A strings, not B. ::eyeroll at self::

I'm amazed that nobody's jumped on this. One of Ovation's best guitars (and I include Adamii in that evaluation) for a steal of a price. I've had mine since 1996 and it's still my number 1 (and I've never used the stereo electronics).......
