Ovation’s tradition of offering annual Limited Edition Collectors’ guitars began in 1982. Since then, over 30 models have become a part of this highly collectible series. For the first time, Ovation’s crown jewel – the ADAMAS – will be added to the list of inductees as the 2008 Collectors’ installment.
In the early part of 2008, Ovation will commence production on 100 rare, and soon to be sought after guitars in their New Hartford, CT factory. The 2008 Collectors’ features some of the best design and technology that Ovation has offered in its 40-plus years as leaders in the acoustic/electric market. As custom with all Adamas models, the soundboard is made from highly refined carbon fiber (graphite) and attached to the body by a suspended composite ring. Its Contour body is handmade from lightweight fiberglass cloth and pumps out tons of acoustic energy. Powering the electric side is Ovation’s own VIP preamp with 5 built-in microphone images that accurately replicate and enhance the guitar’s natural voice.
Other noteworthy specs include a walnut neck, 1 ¾” nut width, slotted peghead and 18k gold filled fingerboard inlays and top trim. Only 100 pieces will be produced – each sequentially numbered. Retail: $5000 includes 9158-0 molded case.
