Adamas 1687-8 Reissue


In 2007 the Ovation factory produced a limited run of Adamas 1687 guitars in exact configuration, materials and construction as the originals 30 years earlier.   I was fortunate enough to own two of these. The attention to detail is amazing and one would have a difficult time to identify this reissue next to an original.   Copied from the original is also the famous 2-knob FET pre-amp with exact replicas of the walnut knobs.  The fit, finish and color matching is also near perfect.  Aside from the visuals, one must play this guitar to truly experience all that was (and is) wonderful about the original Adamas design.  Click HERE for specifications.
