Glen Campbell Signature
*Due to random grain patterns and color disparities in wood and composites, guitars may vary slightly in appearance.
In 1969, Glen Campbell became one of the first-ever Ovation Guitars endorsers and via his nationally syndicated television program, “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour” he brought an Ovation guitar directly into millions of Americans households on a weekly basis. Over the next four decades, Ovation worked closely with the multi-Grammy® Award-winner and Country Music Hall of Fame Inductee to create many of his iconic guitars. In fact, it was Campbell’s desire to be more mobile on stage which inspired the development of Ovation’s acoustic/electric piezo pick up system. “I didn’t like having the mic in front of the camera,” said Campbell in an interview. “I kept pressing Ovation to come up with a solution.
“These guitars are both a celebration of our father’s music as well as a commemoration of the nearly half century relationship between Glen Campbell and Ovation Guitars,” said Cal Campbell. “Meticulous attention has been paid to every detail in order to faithfully recreate the sound of our Father’s original guitar and it’s our hope that they will inspire future generations of artists to play, write, perform and create.”
