Price : US $410
This is a very interesting guitar. This is a vintage Ovation Tornado electric guitar in a finish Ovation called ''Nutmeg'' with the original case. This guitar is all original, except for the tuners, which have been replaced with older sealed, but still Ovation tuners. The body is date stamped in the neck pocket Oct 16, but the year is unreadable, but the serial number is A777, which according to Ovation makes it a 1968 model.
It is good condition for a 38 year old guitar, but does have a few bumps & bruises. Overall the finish is very nice & shiny with a few light scuffs & scratches here I there, as you would expect from normal playing over the years. The body has a nice flame maple back. The neck has some mild birds-eye in the maple. The headstock has a chip out of the trademark Ovation top curve. It plays great, and is set up with medium action. The frets do have quite a bit of wear, especially the first 7, but it surprisingly does not effect the playability. It does, have a few buzzes if played a little harder, but nothing that should bother most players. The electronics work great, and it holds it's tune well.
