Many folks don't know that Ovation made some really cool electric guitars in the 70s. The Ovation UK (or Ultra Kaman) II was perhaps the most innovative. Made in the USA, the UK II is a quality instrument. The unique body is made of a hollow aluminum frame encased in urelite, a dense foam. The 24.75 inch scale mahogany neck features an ebony fingerboard with bowtie inlays. The necks on these were glued as well as bolted on for maximum sustain. Dual humbuckers are hooked to cool 3 way switches for series/parallel switching. Lots of tones. They even have dual jacks for stereo output.  Bright and clear, these pickups deliver a variety of tones. Ovations own bridge and Ovation branded tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is classic sunburst and is set off by gold hardware. A very cool and somewhat rare guitar for not a lot of cash!

This Ovation plays great and sounds very cool. The neck is slim and the action is good. The electronics offer a wide variety of tones. Everything works as it should. A very cool used guitar. This is a solid used guitar for its age. It shows light to moderate pick and clearcoat scratches and moderate indents and dings. The hardware shows some gold fade. No big deal for a player. Comes in original but very beat hardshell case with only one functioning hinge.

The UKII is a great bang for the buck guitar. Nice feel, tone and looks for not a lot of cash. Many players are rediscovering Ovation. Get this one while you can!
