Up for bid is a circa 1978 model OVATION Matrix acoustic guitar, model # 1132-4, serial # 149017 (not Celebrity or Applause).  Made back when helicopter engineers attempted to help OVATION make an instrument to suppress excessive vibrations, the guitar sports an aluminum type fretboard with 20 frets, dot inlays, white binding with black decoration around the body, a black a white decoration surrounding the sound hole, and a deep bowl back for that deep OVATION sound.



This guitar was given to me by my father back in the mid-80’s.  It has been kept in one case or another during its existence.  An SKB case is part of the auction constructed of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene and have what they call the “The Million Mile Guaranty'' - Every SKB hardshell case is unconditionally guaranteed forever. That means, IF YOU BREAK IT, THEY WILL REPAIR OR REPLACE IT AT NO COST TO YOU.  The guitar itself has your usual wear and tear associated with being a 20 year old guitar.  The naturally finished wood shows signs of distress which either can be endearing to the collector, tolerated by the first-timer, or fixed by the professional.  The fretboard also shows normal wear, however being durably made, has withstood the test of time.  This guitar does not appear to be its age!  It’s seen may gigs and been on many recordings and has sounded great every time.  Unfortunately, it never sees the light of day anymore and while I’m happy with it, I feel it’s time for a new home.  Shipping
