Used: An item that has been used previously. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully ... Read moreabout the condition
 

I am the original owner of this guitar. It has served me well but I don't want the Ovation sound any more. The guitar is in good condition except as noted and pictured below.  The case is definitely in used condition, as pictured, but still functional and protective. Check out Ovation gallery for more information on this great guitar.


  Model number: 1768 - 7 LTD
  Instrument: type 6 string acoustic / electric
  Year of manufactur:e 1996
  Body type: Deep  bowl cutaway
  Bowl: Brown textured
  Top: Sitka Spruce AAA aged toner
  Body: binding Abalone inlays
  Bracing: Ovation Quintad bracing
  Scale length: 25  1/4"
  Fretboard: Rosewood w/ Abalone trim
  Fret inlay 1966-1996 MOP inlay
  Bridge: Walnut
  Rosette Wood epaulets
  Pickup: Tru Balance
  Preamp: Optima XLR
  Nutwidth: 1  11/16"
  Tuners: Gold Schaller w/ pearloid buttons
  Neck: 5 piece satin
  Headstock: Satin w/ Abalone trim
  Headstock: logo MOP logo inlay
  Label: Grey Ovation factory

IMPORTANT NOTES:

• There was a surface crack on the body (common for Ovations), but was recently repaired.  The surface is completely smooth, but dirt in the crack left a visual footprint.
• The electronics seem to work fine except that the gain knob crackles a bit - the potentiometer might just need to be cleaned out.
This guitar has lived with cats, so the case has some cat hair in it. I will try my best to get it out, but if you are allergic, be forewarned.

  

Repair - surface crack repaired. Dirt retains light black line. Surface is smooth.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • There was a surface crack on the finish of the body (common for Ovations), but was recently repaired.  The integrity of the wood was NOT compromised. The surface is completely smooth, but dirt in the crack left a light visual footprint.
  • The electronics seem to work fine except that the gain knob crackles a bit - the potentiometer might just need to be cleaned out.
  • This guitar has lived with cats, so the case has some cat hair in it. I will try my best to get it out, but if you are allergic, be forewarned.
  • Frets are good condition. No dead spots.  I just had the guitar inspected and set up for selling condition by Lyrical Lumber; Orlando, FL.  The electronics were not inspected or set up by them though.  I don't remember if there are any shims out or not, but the 12th fret action is about 4mm.
