Up for sale is this mint condition, super rare Adamas 1881-SSB in black with copper flake finish. This is one I thought I would NEVER sell, but I simply have too many guitars… so one or two gotta go!!

It has one of the most comfortable necks I’ve ever played on an acoustic guitar, or electric for that matter!!!It is so super super smooth! it almost disappears in your hand. Fret wear is nonexistent and in spite of it being from 1992, there is no imperfections found anywhere on it. I would describe it as mint myself. It comes with the beautiful blue lined hardshell case that all the ovation guys love! (Including me!)

The shallow bowl is so extremely comfortable to play. It does not suffer sonically however. In fact, the notes are a little quicker to respond to my ear than in the deeper bowl models. Very focused, present and tight sound.

I do not know how many shallow bowl Adamas models they made, but I’ve heard it was not very many and the value of these seems to keep going up!

Electronics work perfectly, and I’ve always been somewhat partial to this preamp due to its extreme simplicity. Feel free to ask questions! And additional pictures available upon request…
