Ovation 1771VL-1, Standard Balladeer, Mid-Depth Bowl, w/Hardshell Case


Ovation brings back the legendary Balladeer series with 1771VL-1, a novelty unveiled at NAMM 2012 and no longer in production. This model features a vintage styled mid-depth bowl which was introduced on early Ovation models from '60s and '70s. This bowl combines features of both the deep and super shallow designs, thus making this Balladeer one very special and unique model.

The Ovation 1771VL-1 starts off with a solid spruce top placed upon this composite bowl. The solid spruce top features a flat surface which is only offered in the glossy sunburst finish (this guitar).

Instead of Ovation`s signature epaulettes and multiple sound holes, this model is equipped with a single, round sound hole adorned with a beautiful rosette. The bridge is made of walnut and features the classic belly shape with a white saddle.

Inside the body you'll find the Ovation COP-1K under-saddle pickup is placed and controlled through Vintage Ovation FET Volume/Tone combo controls placed on the side of the guitar. The neck is made from five pieces of maple/mahogany and attached to the body via the dovetail joint. The fingerboard is made of rosewood and is equipped with 20 frets and small dot/diamond position inlays. Ovation tuners, scalloped X bracing and 25-1/4" scale complete the specs.

This Ovation 1771VL-1 is a manufacturer refurbished acoustic guitar. The Photos are of the actual guitar you will receive. Due to manufacturer guidelines, this Ovation 1771VL-1 cannot be sold as new. The back of the headstock was stamped lightly as "used" (it's barely visible) and given a new serial number to prevent false warranty claims. If you have any questions at all about this, please do not hesitate to contact us. These refurbished guitars provide a unique opportunity to buy a like new instrument at a discounted price (Normally: $599.00 & MSRP: $1199.00). This is the only guitar we have available at this price. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, these Dudes will back it up with a fourteen (14) day return policy (from the date you receive the guitar). We dig these refurb guitars and think you will too, or your money back. Earning your business and trust, one sale at a time.
