Re: String Question

Here you go ... These guys were coveted by diehard Ovation fans. At one point, not too long ago, most of them had a known owner. Now, I bet the location of very few are known...in fact, one of them "kind of" popped up about half a year ago and when the owner found out how rare it was and was asked h...

It was, I believe, the first Adamas CK let go from the factory. There is a list of them somewhere and all the big names they went to.

Re: String Question

Hey Scott... First of all...Thanks for looking in on us and joining! And you are absolutely right about Glen's popularity in England. It was HUGE! Strings...wow...I have never ever thought about that one. I have always gone with the string that best complimented my Ovation, acoustically. I will hit ...

Re: True Grit 50 Year Celebration in Ridgway, Colorado!

Your guess is as good as mine! May have just been a rehearsal! I doubt they let photographers on the set with all the camera angles...

Where is the snow? I wonder if they took this during a rehearsal. Or maybe there is a blooper here. Gotta pull out the DVD.

Re: Review: Glen Campbell, “The Legacy [1961-2017]”

Cowpoke, you are all over it. They had enough room on that last CD for all of those songs. Maybe it is tied to royalties...

Re: Glen Campbell's Ovation 1624 (Proto X014)

Just my observation about Glen's use of a nylon. Once Jerry joined the Goodtime Hour, Glen seemed to gravitate to nylons quite a bit more. Glen using Jerry's Baldwin, with its Prismatone caused quite a stir at Ovation, which in turn probably was the catalyst for Ovations hurried development of a pie...
