Hello, You are looking at a rare opportunity to own the FIRST 25th Anniversary guitar ever produced. Yes, this is serial number 1. These were produced in 1991. This guitar comes with certificate of authenticity from Ovation signed by Bill Kaman himself. It also has the hang tags, manuals, warranty card, and booklet with EQ suggestions from Larry Coryell. Key for the original hardshell case is included. Fret position markers are sterling silver or nickle silver, I am unable to find out for sure. The logo and the 25 years are inlayed with brass. The rosette is a special black and silver edition, not the mother of pearl as are on the regular celebrities. No cracks in the wood or finish other than shown in the photos. Famous Ovation under saddle pickup with OP-24 EQ system.
This is what I could piece together about the history of this guitar. It was a promotional giveaway at the NAMM show in 1990 or 1991. probably given as a raffle or drawing. It looks like it spent most of it's life in the case. There are some very minor playing scuffs and there are two or three minor chips in the finish on the lower bout on the binding, (See Photos). These are in the finish only, the is no damage to the binding itself. They look worse in the photos than they are in real life, I had to angle the light in order to see them in the photo so it threw shadows that make it look really bad, not so. I could have repaired them but some folks do not like them to be reto
