Vintage Ovation Matrix Model 1142-1 Acoustic Guitar
You are looking at a prime example of Ovation's early years.
The Matrix models were discontinued somewhere around 1980.
This made in the U.S.A. guitar plays and sounds like a dream!
The aged quality of the top wood gives it a depth not easily found on newer guitars.
The action is nice and low, and the feel of the guitar is very natural and comfortable.
Playing this guitar, it is easy to see why Ovations quickly became a standard of so many headlining acts!
This guitar is old, and the wear shows it.
I will not try to convince you that this guitar is in mint condition, because it is not.
It has its share of dings and nicks. The fret board shows some wear which I show in the pictures.
However, the frets themselves are in remarkably good condition.
The top wood has some shallow surface cracks which I also show in the pictures.
This is an almost universal condition among older Ovations.
The cracks are surface only and do not affect the sound in any way.
Take advantage of this opportunity to own a piece of Ovation history!
Sorry, no gig bag or case. But I pack the guitar very securely and insure the guitar for its purchase price.
Shipping is $35 anywhere in the U.S. except for Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico (please add $5 extra).
Canadian buyers please add $10US to cover the additional shipping costs.
Good Luck and Happy Bidding!
