Selling my gently used Ovation Balladeer 1861 Acoustic Electric Guitar (hard case and strap included). I purchased this guitar in 2000 and just don't use this guitar as much as it deserves. It is in mint condition with virtually no scratches at all. I hate to get rid of it, but my hope is to find someone who can appreciate this classic guitar as much as I did. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. See all spec information below. Asking 500 obo.

Ovation 1861 Balladeer
The most traditional Ovation guitar . . . and the most popular USA-made model.
The Ovation 1861 Standard Balladeer Acoustic-Electric Guitar is meticulously crafted with a bookmatched solid Sitka spruce soundboard mated to a super-shallow bowl. 2 pieces of mahogany set with the grain in opposing directions make the neck naturally stable. The Kaman Bar reinforcement makes the neck virtually unwarpable and provides a precise and solid joint with the body. The rosewood fingerboard is a radiused 10" and has 20 hand-finished frets. OP-24+ preamp Offering whisper-quiet audio circuitry with very low distortion, the OP-24+ features 3-band EQ with a bypass switch, a Mid-Shift control for selecting a midrange center frequency of either 400 Hz or 1 kHz, a Pre-Shape circuit for boosting bass and treble response while cutting rumble-prone frequencies below 40 Hz, and a battery status light. To provide complete control over the high-output preamp signal, the OP-24+ has a custom-taper volume slider and a 3 band equalizer.
