|OVATION HURRICANE ELECTRIC|
This 1969 Ovation
Hurricane is a truly rare piece. According to the early catalogs
the Hurricane was never offered in the dark nutmeg color finish.
Only colors available were sunburst or red. But here is living
proof that indeed a nutmeg Hurricane, at least one, does exist.
Speculation is that it was either a custom order or perhaps near the end
of the Hurricane product life (1967-1969) guitars were assembled from
whatever remaining parts existed. The nutmeg body is common with
the Tornado and Thunderhead guitars. Other than the color, this
Hurricane is standard issue with the usual 1-7/8" nut, Kluson
deluxe enclosed tuners with mini-buttons, twin high-output
pickups with dual volume and tone controls and 6-way adjustable bridge. Click
