Re: Ovation Tornado

I had a red Ovation Tornado that I shipped to Italy to a Storm series collector. I had no serial# and found out that I had a prototype. I had a local guitar repairman reset the neck and playing action for big bottom strings. When he took the neck rod adjustment cover, we found the number 24 etched with an awl. I found out that only 25 prototypes were made and that Roy Clark had number three and Keith Partrige owned number 17. I will try to dig up my resources for you. I got $500 for the guitar and the buyer paid over a hundred dollars for shipping and insurance.

Re: Ovation Tornado

I have the same guitar. If you get any info on your would you please let me know. Im curious on its value also.

Re: Ovation Tornado

I have one also. The model Number, rather than the serial number will indicate year. Mine is a model 1231, indicating that it was manufactured in 1971. Here's a link, hope it helps.

: Hi guys,
Ive been trying to find out the app. value of this guitar, I got mine from my dad when he passed away. Its in perfect condition, rarely used, always in the guitar case. So, up to 600 bucks hey? Id rather have a nice acoustic, as I dont play yet. Since my dad kept the "Tornado" in the basement I dont have much sentimental attachment to it. Take care! Rick

Hi Guys...

The guitar was made in 1972 - 1973. As for this particular guitar, if you still have it I would be interested in talking to you about it. Email me at guillld@bellsouth.net
