Next up on the old auction block I have a BEAUTIFUL Ovation
1869 shallow-bowl Custom Legend. Built in 1988, this guitar is as stunning as
you could ask it to be with the added benefit that it sounds exactly like you
would expect. Admittedly the shallow bowl lacks some volume, but the tone is
very nice; well balanced with strong midrange. Plug it in and of course, it
being an Ovation, it’s a monster. This is one of the best stage guitars on the
planet…PERIOD!


Here are Ovations specs: the top is AAA Solid Sitka Spruce with Hand Inlaid
Abalone around the whole edge! A couple of technical details include Ovation A
bracing, a scale length of 25 ¼”, and a nutwidth of 1 11/16”. The fretboard is
bound ebony and the CARVED bridge is ebony as well. The fretboard is also
loaded with abalone inlays as is the rosette. The pre-amp is the venerable
OP-24. (Great sound!) and the tuning machines are 24K Gold Schallers with
pearloid buttons.



The guitar does show minor wear after 20 years of use. It has some
pick-scratching that a good buffing will improve considerably, a very small
ding near one edge, and some VERY minor scratching on the headstock. The action
is a smidge high for my liking, but still very playable. The neck looks
straight to me and the binding is fine. I mention the action because I’ve
removed the one shim that it had, so it may need a little truss rod tweak. But
again, it plays fine, and I wouldn’t mess with it if I were going to keep it.
Finally, the cowboy frets show some wear,
