Some fine Ovations (14 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2014-05-05) A little tribute to these under-rated guitars.
Ovation 1538-4 Elite 12string (8 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2014-07-18) I had to do minor restorations and adjustments (especially that hole under the E-string, quite common to Ovations) but now this guitar can rival my 1688.
Custom Legend N769 (6 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2014-07-02) The finest workmanship (even inside!) with a bell-like sound.A great pleasure to play and a privilege to own.
Mini Adamas (3 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2015-01-07) I´ve just bought a very nice and detailed mini-Adamas guitar.With this and my 1687 I tested a special feature of my new Lumix camera.
´82 Collector´s with carved bridge (9 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2015-04-22) I always wanted this guitar with a acrved bridge like the custom legend, so I decided to make it myself.I also used a custom-made armrest(by Ernie Rissmann, he has a special ovation pattern for them) and re-coloured the white pegheads into matching blue-ish look. What do you think?
1537 carved bridge (4 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2015-04-24) The second. I took my time and it worked even better.I think this bridge matches the woody character of this guitar.
A never played ´92 sunburst 1769 (3 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2015-07-08) I found this on ebay...incredible...built 1992, still factory strung and the old battery(exp.date1995!) inside...only little dust, not a single scratch, perfectly matches my shiny 12string!
Adamas 1681 woodtop (11 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2014-07-03) Technically it appears to be an Elite, but I don´t know what the Ovation people did, this guitar can outplay any other of my Ovations. And..isn´t it a beauty?
Adamas 1687 red (6 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2017-08-28) The guitar has new frets, brass nut, re-set neck, new Schaller machines with finer ratio and shorter axles for better string pressure on the nut, John Pearse ebony armrest.
flag (7 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2015-03-04) Bridge problems?
1759 carved bridge (6 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2015-05-11) I decided to make new carvings instead of making a new binding at the edge of the fretboard.
1537-1 a surprising find (8 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2015-03-21) In a music shop in Holland was this guitar. Needed a neck-reset, little polish and cleaning, plays and sounds like a dream. And I love sunburst guitars.
Now I am another PROUD owner of a 1537!
