A 1983 Ovation 1537 Elite in Natural finish.

The list of professional guitarists who played Ovation acoustics is long and varied.  In the 60s and 70s, Glen Campbell was perhaps the biggest star associated with Ovation, but many stars have followed in the succeeding decades including Melissa Etheridge and Richie Sambora.  Lay claim to this vintage Ovation and you can add your name to the list. 

This Ovation is factory equipped with a passive piezo pickup system.  No battery required.  You'll want to plug into an outboard preamp or acoustic amp for best results, as you would with any passive pickup system.  Freshly set up in-house by our esteemed Guitar Tech, so it's playing its best.  Comes with its original shaped Ovation case.
