I agree... where are the Adamas Markers?? Dots??? Like on a 1111 Balladeer???
Do you know what Model this is? As much as I like seeing the new Models come out, it is getting frustrating when no information is given with the picture.

Do you think that the face looks flat too (not glossy), or is it just the way the picture is taken???

Looks like not painted NWT like the original 2080 and no SR. Probably sounds great. May be the entry level Adamas. dots are plain, but that would go along with entry level.

That top looks just like my 2080. No paint, no gloss, and you can feel the weave when you run your hand across it.

Agreed dot markers on a Adamas are lame!!!
Where do you think they're making these,I thought the US factory was busy with the 50th Anniversary models so what's the chance we have a korean Adamas???

In 2014, there was a limited run of 30 guitars announced on the Ovation website, also including a matching mando... The Guitar was called 2080ES, and it looks exactly like this one here. Try Google....

That guitar is a 2080ES. From what I have learned, it was made to be the "big brother" of the Adamas MM80 mandolin. It is definitely not an entry level, or at least not priced like one. I bought mine from Al a few years ago. There were supposedly only 30 made, but mines not numbered so I really don't know if that is true. If you Google it, there are a couple of videos, including one from NAMM.

I badly want one of those mandos, but it's way out of my range.

OK, sorry for the entry level comment, but to me it looks wrong having dots.

I'm with you Damon! I was puzzled by the dots as well. I love the clean look on my other Adamas that have no fret markers at all. Other than those, it is one of my most beautiful models I own.
