Ovationâ€™s tradition of offering annual Limited Edition Collectorsâ€™ guitars began in 1982. Since then, over 30 models have become a part of this highly collectible series. For the first time, Ovationâ€™s crown jewel â€“ the ADAMAS â€“ will be added to the list of inductees as the 2008 Collectorsâ€™ 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 Collectorsâ€™ 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 Ovationâ€™s own VIP preamp with 5 built-in microphone images that accurately replicate and enhance the guitarâ€™s natural voice.
Other noteworthy specs include a walnut neck, 1 Âľâ€ť nut width, slotted peghead and 18k gold filled fingerboard inlays and top trim. Only 100 pieces will be produced â€“ each sequentially numbered. Retail: $5000 includes 9158-0 molded case.
