Used, in very good playing condition. This 1111-4 model from Ovation's early years is a real sweetheart of a player, with all the lightweight playfeel, rich and punchy tones, and unique design appointments that give these guitars such a loyal following. This guitar has a few top cracks that were repaired by Ovation themselves about 10 years ago that are very stable, and it has a slight bridge lift on one side (see photos). It also has some finish cracking on the back of the neck around the headstock that also shows no movement and appears fully stable (see photos); the thick finish on these guitars often lead to issues like these and all in all this instrument is in very nice shape for its age with lots of life left in it. When it was repaired at the factory in 2011 they also leveled and dressed the frets, which are still in quite good shape as well. Despite its quirks this guitar certainly has that Ovation charm to spare! Ships in the original molded brown hardshell case which is slightly worn but in very good shape overall.
