Something extra in my purchase.


Recommended Posts

Oh it's on the bench for now. The bridge was pulling up, the nut was horrific, and the top was actually popping off the bowl. It was $24.99 buy-it-now for a reason.


Fixed the bowl edge and I have a good fitting nut off another Ovation. The bridge? Well, I basically plowed a bunch of wood glue under it and clamped the living snot out of it. I've had good luck with quickie fixes on O bridges.


The bowl has a small crack in it and it's missing a chunk of the atmosphere-reentry proof binding so you KNOW it had a few hot suppers along the way. These guitars don't dent easily.


Kinda a hybrid. It says "Matrix" on the headstock. It was made in the late 70s in Moosup along with the aluminum necked Applauses. It has a laminated top, raised binding like an Applause, an aluminum neck but with a rosewood board. Mishmash of Ovation/Applause.
