looking for the ultra hardbody (84)

Hey Guys,
I'm looking for the Ultra Hardbody. To my knowledge they were only made in 1984. Look a little bit like an SG, but heavier and cutaways are uneven. Only seen two in my life, but I wanna have it, I just need to. Any information about it is welcome.

Re: looking for the ultra hardbody (84)

I have a Ultra Hard Body that I'm going to sell on Ebay with Steve Ripley's fader system in it, they only made 30 so check it out.

Re: looking for the ultra hardbody (84)

The solidbody ovation from the early eighties is called the Ultra GP. GP stands for guitar paul. It was an attempt by ovation to copy the Les Paul design. Solid Mahogany body, Carved maple top, Wraparound hardtail bridge and dual DiMarzio humbuckers. The only other Solid body electrics made by ovation I know of are from the late-seventies and early-eighties. The Breadwinner, and the Viper which was recently reincarnated as an acoustic. I've been looking for an Ultr GP for a few years now, before Josh Homme of Q.O.T.S.A appeared with it, and it's been quite a journey. Almost nobody in the vintage community knows of them and to my knowledge only a few thousand were made, about 90 of which were black. Very rare, and very expensive. Good luck to everyone though, myself included. I hope I've been informative.

Re: Looking for the ultra hardbody (84)

My search to identify my guitar led me to this posting. My uncle who used to collect guitars gave me an Ovation electric guitar about 15 years ago and told me that it's not worth much now, but keep it because it will be hot someday. I can't find any model numbers, only a serial number E-12184. It is black. It has a mono and stereo output. It has that Les Paul look with two rail type humbuckers with a switch above each one to turn the humbucker off. I would like to know if this is the 84 that everyone is looking for. All I know is that this thing plays like a dream and yes everything's for sale.

It's not the ultra GP

Nevermind, Found a picture of the ultra GP and it's not that. It's the UK-II. Not worth anything!

Re: looking for the ultra hardbody (84)

I have the same one as the one on the following site:
http://www.angelfire.com/mo/theamorphousband/gp.html
Bought it new in '85 Original case as well. Rarely played so it's in great condition. Don't think I'm ready to part with it, just a unique sound to it that I haven't heard in anything else.

Re: looking for the ultra hardbody (84)

I bought one in 1985 in NY. Got it at Matthews Music for 1/2 price. $250 at the time. I got a red one, wish I got the sunburst also...............who knew??
Mine is in excellent condition. Don't know what it's worth but it sounds awesome.

Re: looking for the ultra hardbody (84)

i have an ovation solid body ultra gs...not sure what year and i have no idea where it came from. its in near perfect shape though. so if your interested, let me know.......

I own one of these

I am pretty sure I own one of this Ovation's that you are talking about but, I need a little more infomation about it to be sure.
