Time to thin the herd.

This is a relatively rare 2005 LUSTY RED Elite T.
Very little wear on frets or fingerboard.
OP-30 Preamp. CP-100 "Thinline" pickup.
$500 plus shipping (PayPal). Includes case with metal "Ovation" logo.







Feel Free to ask Questions, or for specific photos.
Remember... these guitars are getting pretty scarce.

Lusty? If it's like every other T that I've played, it's worth every penny whether lusty comes to mind or not. It's a good price for a wonderful guitar....

Hi Arthur. First, nice photo job. Second, two questions.
1- How are these constructed? Meaning, what is the top made from, and what is the binding like beneath? I ask because I see Lyrachord running all the way up to the very edge of the top.
2- What's the soccer ball thing in the case?

Sorry .. I edited many times, and ended up with four questions.. but I don't know anything about these.

Those outdoor photos were submission for the 2016 OFC Calendar that didn't make the cut.

1) The top is Solid Spruce.
Elite T's are made like any other Ovation except that that bowl and the top are painted with the same paint. In this case, Red.
As to the Binding... I have never scraped-off the paint to see the binding an Elite T. But I believe that they are bound. You can see the lower edge of the binding, where it meets the Lyrachord, if you look really hard at an actual guitar.
You can almost see it in that photo from the side of the preamp and string height.
These are old photos, I didn't take them today, but the guitar hasn't changed.

2) That is an old photo, so I don't think that I still have the "Soccer ball thing in the case."
What it was is a Fan.
Y'know like those Fans that ladies have in old Churches without A/C?
But in this case it was an advertisement for Silver Lining Pawn Shop out in East Portland.
I am guess that it is for when Mothers take their kids to play Soccer, and then have to sit in the heat.

The photo with the flag is cool. Made in the USA.

The Elite-T tops are bound, but there is no purfling. Since the top is painted, purfling is not needed.

Yep, you did. I have the photos (don't worry, they're not for sale).
