1979 Ovation Pacemaker Model 1615, 12-String Acoustic/Electric
Here we have a vintage 12-string from Ovation, a Pacemaker Model 1615 from 1979. This piece is in fine condition, with only a few finish cracks on the top and a few around the scarf. The top binding is also shrinking just a bit. Structurally speaking, the guitar is in great shape, with a fairly straight neck that does have a slight heel dip. After an expert setup from our in-house luthier, the instrument feels great and sounds great too. The tone is very trouble heavy, with a jangly sound that fits great in a mix. The plugged in sound is very transparent as well. The spruce top has some beautiful medullary rays, and the ebony fretboard gives it a classy look with the diamond and dot inlays. All told, this is a well-aged and affordable vintage 12-string, and a perfect tool to add to any player’s arsenal; don’t pass it up! Ships in its original hardshell case.
