Re: Thanks Glen Campbell

Smithpatel Very touching. I think that a lot of us have stories that in one way or another mirror parts of yours. Yes, I was also sad, but happy to see Glen 3 times on his farewell tour. He definitely shaped a lot of who I wanted to emulate, as a person and musician. As with many of the greats, you ...

Re: Glen's Ovation Patriot

What a beautiful guitar. It looks MINT!
Something about that nutmeg stain really went along with Ovation soundboards...and I am not the only one that has had that observation.
Thank you for sharing those pictures. Killer Ovation with an unbelievable low #.

Re: Glen's Ovation Patriot

wolffbark,
Welcome to the forums.
I have no idea. But..
The patriot was a guitar that most owners took pride in having. Your best bet is to join the OVATION FAN CLUB and pose your question there.

There were 1976 of them made...so it might be a tissue in a tornado, but you never know until you ask.

Re: Ovation suspends U.S. operations in an effort to modernize manufacturing

First of all thanks for joining the Forums. I totally agree with your stance about Ovation. At least DW gave it a try. They certainly could have marketed the brand a little differently, imo. It was probably doomed from the start. Taylor and Martin were certainly not going to let Ovation get their fo...

Glen Campbell's 1973 1117 Ovation Legend - Glen Returns to the Deep Bowl

I n October of 1973, Ovation R&D had designed and ordered 50 Legends to be built with Ovation's new "A" braced design. To this point, in their upstart operation, Ovation had used "X" and "VT" bracing in the acoustics they had offered. The Legend would become the top of the line, deep bowl, offering...

Early 60's W.G. Barker Archtop

I n the following photo's we see Glen in the recording studio, presumably during mid-1968. He is pictured with an archtop guitar. I am presuming that this studio work was for the Wichita Lineman album and/or his compilation with Bobbie Gentry, as the shirt and coat can be seen on the cover of Wichi...
