Click any picture for supersize view!

A great Nylon string for the stage and studio! The Country Artist offered players the great sound of a classical guitar without the hang-ups. Made in the USA. The top is solid Sitka spruce and features Ovation's VT-8 bracing. The 24.25 inch scale mahogany neck features an ebony fingerboard and a 1 7/8s" nut width. An undersaddle pickup delivers cool plugged in tone. A walnut bridge and sealed tuners keep it rock solid. Nice appointments include binding and a fancy rosette. The finish is natural. A very cool nylon string guitar.

This Ovation plays and sounds good. The neck is straight, the action is good and the frets are fine. The pickup sounds great and delivers nice tone. The pickup control knobs are cracked and spin on the shaft. The electronics work fine but the knob should be repaired or replaced. Condition wise, the guitar shows normal wear and tear you would expect from a 30+ year old instrument. It shows moderate pick and clearcoat scratches as well as some dents and dings. There's a repaired top crack. It is stable and isn't going anywhere. Comes in an Ovation hardshell case.

This is a lot of guitar for the bucks. Made in the USA, good tone and cool looks. You would be hard pressed to find a better deal on an acoustic/electric nylon string.
