I have one USED 1982 Sunburst (black orange?) Ovation 1612 Custom Balladeer 6 string acoustic / electric guitar up for bid. It is model 1612, made by Kaman - manufactured in Connecticut USA 1982 (ser# 281995). I have attached a scan of the Original hard case which I will include to the winning bidder (it has some wear and the locking clasp is broken) but the it is good otherwise with three working clasps and velvet brown interior. Original price back in the day for this was 650.00 US, so it is a high quality instrument. Please contact me if you would like additional photos or arrange to see it. Amplifier plug in is on the back of the round bowl on the left side facing (so on the high 'E' side if you are looking at the front)
It plays and sounds fantastic.
The guitar has some wear but is in good condition nonetheless, and has typical Ovation surface lacquer cracks on the top finish below the bridge and below the sound-hole. The headstock has a 'ding' in it on the side above the 'D' tuning peg. Electronics, pickup and volume knob are all excellent and the neck is straight. All parts are original. The surface lacquer crack below the bridge is the worst one but the guitar does not buzz or lose any of its tone, so it looks like its damage to the veneer only. A little TLC work/restoration wouldn't hurt. Comes from a smoke free home and was always kept in the case except for gigs of course...
