That seems to be exactly what happened. Julian Raymond said in May 2010 that the artwork was already done, with the Gibson, as the original from photographer Chris Anthony's website proves. Around January 2011, when the artwork started popping up here and there, it had the Ovation photoshopped in it.

I was just curious...as at some point when Ghost was released, Ovation re-issued Glen's 1627 as a Limited Edition in celebration of Glen and the release. Surfdog joined in that celebration with Ovation with an ad of their own. I was just wondering if Surfdog changed the album cover when Ovation and Surfdog combined ad campaigns in celebrating Glen and Ghost...and Ovation.

Well I seem to remember we discussed this 7 or 8 years ago! :)

Anyway, this seems to be the original from the photographer, Chris Anthony.

Two Different "Ghost on the Canvas" Covers

While researching something else...I noticed what seems to be two different album covers for Ghost! One appears to have an Ovation, the other...possibly a Gibson.

On the back cover, it appears that they only used the back of the Gibson.
