Are you looking for an Ovation Adamas, but don’t want to pay the price for a new one? Then you may have found exactly what you're looking for. I have a collection of Ovation Adamas guitars. I am selling only one of them. I have too many guitars (Is that really possible?) and it's time to "thin the herd". This guitar was rarely played and is my newest acquisition. It is in perfect condition. My best guess is that it has no more than 5-10 hours playing time. I cannot find even the slightest flaw or blemish anywhere on this guitar or the case.

This is a Model Adamas 2087-GT-8 (Reverse Blue Burst). Serial #161222-01. It is currently fitted with Elixir light gauge strings. Having owned several Ovation guitars since the 70’s, I can assure you, you will enjoy this guitar for many, many years. And the sound, well, if you’ve never played an Adamas, you will be amazed at the clarity, fullness, and sustain of this guitar. It has a deep contour body, and unlike other 2087’s here on Reverbit has epaulets on both sides, turned outward. She's a real beauty.

No, it is not "brand new". But I would challenge anyone to tell it from a brand new Adamas 2087 GT. It has never left my home. I purchased it as a new guitar in August 2017 from an authorized Ovation dealer. It was crafted in Ovation’s New Hartford, Connecticut Custom Shop for the Japanese market

The dealer told me Adamas guitars made for the Japanese market are rare to find and highly sought after. He said Japanese dealers have been extremely particular about the Ovation Adamas guitars they order. If there is even the very slightest blemish or imperfection, something the average person might not even notice, it is rejected and returned to the factory. Knowing this, although U.S.A. made Ovation guitars are of very high quality, the ones made for the Japanese market go through an additional quality control check.

If you would like any additional pictures or a close up of any section, or have any questions, just message me. Because of the time and cost to ship the guitar, I will only accept a return if the guitar does not match the pictures and description I have provided. If you’re serious about getting a real U.S. made Ovation Adamas, and want one that’s indistinguishable from a brand new one, here’s your chance. For shipping and insurance costs outside of Italy, please provide me your exact address. Within Italy it is € 50-80, professionally packed and insured. I am shipping it without the battery. The electronics are fine. I just had the preamp checked at a local music shop. But you will need to provide a 9V battery to activate the electronics. I just don't want to chance any battery leakage.
