Gibson is considered the inventor of the archtop guitar, if not the archtop stringed instrument, which, of course, goes back centuries.Acoustic Gibson archtops from 1902 to the mid-1920s such as the early O and L models are collected more for their historical value than their sound quality.
Often sporting a pair of f-holes instead of a single, round sound hole, archtops were popular with jazz, blues, and country musicians, and are widely associated with music of the 1930s, ’40s, and ’50s. FIT'S A DEEP BOWL OVATION, CASE IS IN NICE SHAPE FOR AGE, HARDSHELL IS SOLID AND ALL LACTHES ARE WORKING. "NO RESERVE" OVATION EARLY 80'S HARDSHELL CASE "NO RESERVE" THIS OVATION HARDSHELL CASE IS FROM THE EARLY 80'S. THIS EARLY 1980'S OVATION HARDSHELL CASE IS IN NICE SHAPE! I got an email from Rondo regarding this guitar where they confirmed it was a limited model with a price of 9. Originally this model had two volume controls but one of them was sacrificed to make way for the boost switch. This model sells new for 9 and the EMG-KFK is another 0 - and with labor you're at 9.This one's in dead mint condition and for 9, I'll throw in a gigbag. It's offered in immaculate condition for just 9 and I'm adding a matching tribal graphic strap for free.
