Each year from 1982 to 2010 Ovation produced a very special model guitar in limited quantities called the Collectors Series.  More than just a showcase of different colors or pretty finishes, Ovation used this platform to showcase their latest technology and design concepts. Some innovations became mainstream success while others went back to the drawing board.  But every Collectors Series model was unique in its own way and in many cases groundbreaking within the guitar industry.
