Offered for sale is a priceless, one-of-a-kind heirloom, a fine instrument once owned and used extensively on world tours by international pop star John Denver. This Ovation Adamas 1 Twelve String Guitar has been maintained in perfect working condition. The guitar body, electronics, pick ups, neck, frets, intonation, nut, bridge, headstock and tuning gears are all set up to professional specs. The guitar is tuned to C#; it’s amplified sound is uniquely Ovation Adamas. However, the instrument’s acoustic tonal quality and projection are reminiscent of the best 612 and 512 12 String Guild Guitars of the 1960’s and 70’s era. This guitar is ready to play and record.
