Up for auction is a 2004 30th Commemorative Ovation Custom Legend. One of only 300 made! When I first played this acoustic I was immediately struck by how rich it sounded! It surprised the Hell out of me because I always found Ovations to be acoustically lacking. Yes, I'm one of those cork-sniffing wood snobs but the beautifully aged AAA grade bear claw spruce top and the classic Ovation deep bowl body work together to give it a nice, chunky bottom and shimmering high-end. I guess you could say it's naturally scooped! The action is effortless across the fretboard and and when you slam down on the strings the notes bloom with a throaty growl. But the guitar's electronics are what make it different from the Custom Legends of the past and all other Acoustic/Electric guitars; the 1719-30CM gives you the choice between a 1/4" stereo or XLR input jack that both run through the OP Pro preamp, first introduced by Ovation in 2004 and still used by the company to this day. What you hear when you play this guitar acoustically is what you will hear when you plug it in. It sounds very organic through a nice, clean amp. From what I can gather this model is comparable to the Al DiMeola's signature Ovation model. Only 300 of this particular guitar were made in 2004 at Ovation's factory in New Hartford, Connecticut to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their Custom Legend model. At the time it sold brand new for $2,499 and Although it would be considered used it has never seen a gig and has only the faintest swirling on the top, below the treble strings. Comes with original case and all the candy!
