Acoustic Electric Classical Guitar Model 1624-4 by Ovation

The Ovation Country Artist is one of the more unique Ovation models. Basically a nylon string guitar for steel string finger pickers. It has a traditional flat classical fingerboard, but the nut width is a slim 1-7/8 inch compared to the typical 2 inch width of a classical. The neck joins the body at the 14th fret, same as Ovation steel sting guitars. As part of the Artist series, this guitar features the slightly shallower Artist depth bowl. The tuners are chrome plated Schaller Classicals.

The guitar is in good condition with light wear. Like many acoustic guitars of this vintage it has noticeable surface cracks, most notably above the bridge on the treble side and below the bridge in the center of the lower bout. These issues had been attended from the inside, they are stable and do not interfere with sound or play-ability. The action is good, frets are fine and the neck is straight. It comes with the original brown case shown.
A 4 digit serial number in black ink on paper label suggests that this guitar has been produced after November 1967 (when 4 digits started to be used) and before February 1970 (when 5 digits started to be used). Labeling it a 1969 model is my best guess but not guaranteed to be correct.  

- Spruce top
- Slot-head design with laminated 5-piece mahogany/maple neck. 
- dot + diamond fretboard markers
- Ovation active electronics with single volume knob control
- Rosewood bridge 
- 20 fret ebony fingerboard with side markers
- Vintage Ovation case included
