Description

Thirty years after the introduction of Adamas Guitars, the company released 4 new American-made commemorative models for 2005. Each was released in limited quantities and is sure to be prized in any guitar collection. #47 has been regarded throughout Ovation's history as being one of the best Adamas guitars ever made, and this 1187-247 reissue is an extremely accurate replica of Charlie Kaman's personal favorite. It's not hard to see why he liked it: With an Autumnal aesthetic and tasteful relief carvings, it's hard not to stop and admire. Add to that a unique, responsive voice, full of pop and big low end thanks to the Unidirectional Carbon Graphite construction and you've got an inspirational instrument that will have you discovering new and exciting forms of musical expression.

This is the top-of-the-line, the Mac Daddy of the Adamas line, and it delivers. It's incredibly light, yet strong enough to fill the room with even a light touch of the strings. It's got great low end - the bass really comes alive in a cool way. Fun for all kinds of playing styles!
 
We've seen some cool Ovations come through the shop and this one is a lot of fun. I use graphite guitars in all my performances these days and highly recommend it for anyone who plays in a lot of different venues.
