    Yeah, I've played a couple of great looking Ovations that sounds awesome, but at home (which is where I play 99% of the time) I play while sitting down. I couldn't keep the Ovations in a comfortable playing position even for 10 minutes at Guitar Center.

    A solution looking for a problem. I've never met an Ovation I liked.

    See how well the bowl back worked here?

    There are aspirational prices and there are "I'll have what he's having" prices. This one has reached the "Never mind I DON'T want what he's having" price.:p:eek::D:confused:

    I imagine that is among the last of the USA Ovations as Fender was repurposing that USA facility that Ovation and Hamer shared at the time (FMIC had the Hamer guys also making Guild archtops out of that facility) so the seller think's it a rare collectable.

    I kept a strap on mine when playing seated. Solves most problems.

    If I had any functioning intelligence, it would be insulted too!

    It's all fun & games until the seller has to pay a $3000 listing fee.

    With that goofy headstock and round back I wouldn't pay more than $59.99.

    Ovations are bathtub safe and sound like they were made by Mattel.

    That is very difficult to do, considering how little of it there is. :p
