Re: Ovation Anniversary Edition
I purchased a new Ovation 1657-7 (model number, not serial number) in 1978 in California. I loved that guitar and played till the frets were gone. I was never able to find any information on it when I wanted to sell it about 5 years ago. Other than worn frets, it was in superb condition and I would up selling it on consignment in a mucsic store in Madison Wisconsin around 1996. As I recall I originaly paid $650.00 for it and sold it for $400.00.
I hope this helps you a little. It was an extremely rare guitar as only 150 were made. 10 for every year Ovation had been in business at the time. At least as I recall.
