OVATION 12 STRING 1615 PACEMAKER ACOUSTIC ELECTRIC
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-10-20)
Price : US $345.00
Up for bids is a vintage 70s Ovation 12 string electric acoustic guitar. There is the typical stress crack going down the bottom from the bridge. This is just the finish, and they almost all do it.
When I first received this guitar, there was a wire that had come loose, so the electronics weren't working. I've since taken it in for repair, only to discover the crystals in the pickup for the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd strings aren't working. I didn't notice right away, because I strum a lot of chords mainly. But when you try to play a lead on the (high) E, B, or G strings, that's when you notice. So to be clear, the electronics are working, but only the low E, A & D strings are being picked up.
I looked into having it repaired further, or even having Ovation put in a new pickup, but it was going to cost me an arm and a leg, so I never pursued it. I've been hanging on to this and just using it for strictly an acoustic. I recently have been able to afford another 12 string electric acoustic, so I don't see the need to hang on to it any longer. Actually, I would like to hang on to it, but I need the cash.
This is a very nice Ovation that books more than the starting bid price, even with the fore mentioned issues. Ovation has long since discontinued this model, so it's no longer being manufactured. So if you've been wanting one of these, bid now before it's too late. Neck is straight, action is good, and original case is included. If you have any questions, please ask before you bid.
