Not mine, but a very good price on a nice looking 1657 on Reverb.com ($500)

I'd be jumping all over this, but I just bought a BFLG 1657 that I'll be re-topping with torrefied spruce.

Put an offer on the 1657 - I'm going to need more closet space to hide this from the wife if the bid is accepted.

It is hard to beat the acoustic response of an A braced deep bowl. Especially at that price.

That's for sale by an OFC member, Sam. He's a good guy and really has an eye and ear for Ovations.

You should have let me know last week. I was in Portland and could have delivered it to you. Congratulations.

Sorry Adam, Arthur made the same offer first. Just didn't want you thinking I ignored your offer.

Thanks for the praise Mark haha.

I love my 1657 so much I bought it twice. It's surprising they don't command a higher price.

Congratulations, OMA, these AV´s are terrific guitars! One of those I later regret after I sold it. You should try very light strings on it.

Looks great, Art.

Here's my 'new' 1657. It's not quite as nice as yours. It had a tortoise shell pick guard that was used to hide the cracked and sunken top above the bridge. There's also a couple of big cracks below the bridge.

I guess I'll just have to re-top it with torrefied Adi spruce.

Ooo! Will you be able save the Herringbone binding?
Or is that available pre-made like the Abalone (mother of toilet seat) binding.

And... I answered my own QUESTION

Yep. I've already got the Stewmac herringbone purfling for this guitar.

It's not quite as small and tight as the Ovation herringbone, but it'll be an acceptable substitute.

I looked for MOP (MOTS?) herringbone binding, but no one makes it, so I'll have to settle for the stuff Stewmac sells.

Lookie HERE is another 1657 on evilBay.
Why would anyone peel a commemorative label off of an Anniversary?

Hey OMA, and DAN,
Yeah, pretty much, I'd say so, too, and dollars to donuts, probably all 3 at once! Maybe they got a hate on for Ovations? It's the mother-of-all head-scratchers, for sure, let me tell you what?! Some peoples' kids shouldn't be let outta the house! Does this person's Mom let him/her run with scissors, 'cause that what it look like to me. Or, maybe it's HOT, and they took the serial number off, so it could NOT be traced? Just sayin'. Yikes!
