Early Ovation Headstocks

The rounded back, sound hole rosette and the distinctive headstock design were the visual clues that the early Ovations were paving a different path than standard wood box guitars of the time.  Shown below are the beautiful headstock designs of the first shiny bowl series of acoustics dated 1966 - 68.  Click on additional links for photos of other Ovation headstock designs including modern day Ovations, Adamas, Mandos and Ukes, Solidbodies and Storms.
