Custom Legend 30th Anniversary
2004 marked the 30th anniversary of Ovations flagship model, the Custom Legend. Since 1974, the Custom Legend found its way into the hands of just about every prominent Ovation player including Glen Campbell, Paul McCartney, Al DiMeola and Paul Simon just to name a few. To celebrate the occasion, Ovation chose to produce this special 30th Anniversary model in limited quantity. But rather than do a full on re-issue of the original, they chose to expertly meld some of the latest available technologies (microsphere bowl, LX neck, OP-pro Studio electronics) with the original elements (A-braced top, abalone bound body, hand carved bridge, gold/pearloid tuners). What resulted was absolutely the best of both worlds and my guitar below continues to be a keepsake of my collection.
