I'm thinking of parting with this...
Yes, it's an Ovation Preacher Deluxe
. All the active stuff works (albeit with a few slightly noisy switches) and it sounds rather nice.
However...at some point in it's life, it's had a wee bump...
I've upped the contrast on these images so the damage is more visible.
I'm pretty sure it's not through to the wood (@ICBM
- what say you?), but it is a little unsightly.
Now, such things don't bother me (it's perfectly stable and plays fine), but I do realise this is a bone of contention.
It's not a particularly rare or valuable guitar, so sinking money into a localised refin doesn't make fiscal sense.Hypothetical question
- presented with damage such as this - would it put you off a purchase? (that's supposing you were in the market for a weird old Ovation solid*)
*Either that, or (if you can’t suspend disbelief), just imagine it’s a tasty LP or SG you fancy.
