|OVATION THUNDERHEAD ELECTRIC|
Is there one
Thunderhead in the collection that I'm especially partial to? Yes,
and this is it. A beautiful sunburst 1968 Deluxe model with
immaculate gold hardware. The sunburst finish spruce top is done
wonderfully with great attention to the edge and f-hole binding.
The sides are dark and the same sunburst finish is on the lightly
figured maple back. There are no finish cracks or
any other signs of age. The
electronics are the standard Thunderhead setup with twin DeArmond gold
pickups, master volume, twin tone controls and a pickup blend
control. The 3-way toggle controls in and out of phase selection
for the pickups. The bridge has been retro-fit with a Gibson 6
piece. Tuners have been replaced with factory originals and like
all Thunderheads, the action is low and the neck is super fast.
All Thunderheads are not created equal, and for reasons I can't put into
words, this one just has something special to it. Click
