This Ovation 1712 Custom Balladeer was THE model for a number of years with Ovation. Many a player grew into these guitars influenced by many a rock and country player who played them on stage.  Starting with Ovation’s patiented deep bowl providing a depp rich tone to this guitar, the top is made of solid sitka spruce. A mahogany neck topped by an ebony fretboard made playing a joy. The original pickup system is here as well including a 3 band EQ, Vol control and Battery Check.  If you owned an Ovation, chanced are it was one of these.  A good chance here to revist you past and get that sound back into your arsenal.

This Ovation 1712 Custom Balladeer Acoustic Electric Guitar is being sold used and come to you in VG condition.  There is a crack in the top of this guitar from the bridge to toward the back of the guitar measuring about 5”.  The crack is repairable and the guitar’s top is tight.  There was a repair along the rear edge of the guitar where the top was reattached to the body after a separation. No damage is visible.  No other issues can be seen with this guitar.  The neck is very clean and plays smoothly. It has decent straightness to it with strong fret life available on it still.  You will receive this Ovation acoustic guitar well packed in its original hard case but without any of the original packaging or paperwork.  Returns are very limited (damaged or erroneous in its description).  Please ask all questions before bidding as your satisfaction is important to me before you purchase.  Customer 100% satisfaction is our one and only goal.
