The Ovation line of semi-hollow body electrics guitars included several models of 4 string bass. The original model was called the "Williwaw" and had 2 pickups. Shortly after, a single pickup version was introduced as the "Typhoon". After the first catalog was printed in 1967, the single pickup model was renamed Typhoon I, and the 2 pickup version was renamed Typhoon II. The sunburst Typhoon II pictured here is a 1968 model in near-mint condition. The 2 pickups are controlled by a master volume control and two individual tone controls. The usual 3-way selector switch (neck, both, bridge) is located on the lower horn. The body of the Typhoon II is smaller and thinner than the 6- and 12-string electric storm guitars. The top is spruce and the back/sides are maple. The sunburst finish, multiply top binding and the nicely bound f-holes are all very nicely done.
