Great Work Dan.

I just saved all those photos in an album on my computer so that I can share them with folks who already think that I am nuts about all these Ovations.
But this is just a piece of History.
So Kewel to see this.


Thanks, Art.

You also need to bring a camera when you return the guitar to Jen.
So there will be a video of the "reunion".

Considering she lives in Brooklyn, NY and I live in Lake Forest, CA, I don't think I'm going to be there for the reunion.

But, I will ask her for video of her playing it. Kewl?

Absitively. Might contribute to harmony in the cosmos, too. Excellent work, Dan. Your karmha account is in-the-black.

Jen got the guitar yesterday. She's pretty thrilled, but now she's got a predicament.

Does she play the Martin or the Ovation.

I like those kinds of predicaments. LOL!

It looks like a D-18 to me, but then I don't know that much about Martin guitars.

It's a shame you couldn't have been there in person to watch her reaction. I reckon that would have been priceless.

Fantastic job on the restore, Dan. I'm sure she'll love it for years to come.

Well done Mr Savage...another example of the an human connection through music.

We live a time where these connections can be passed on, amplified, and documented for all.

Thanks for sharing Dan, and a very hearty congratulations to ya! Jen just upgraded your status to "Master Luthier"! A title to which I wholeheartedly agree (due to 1612 ownership!). Thanks for sharing your journey, and for posting highly educational BFLG threads! Can't wait for your next project! Next time I'm in California (assuming I'm not intruding and assuming we both have time) let me buy you a drink!

Just a job very well done!

P.S. Wasn't expecting such a jazzy expression from Harry Chapin's daughter. Really pleasantly surprised. She seems so down to earth just like her Dad!

Thanks everyone.

Ken,

Yes, next time you're in CA, let's get together for a drink and a couple of songs.

Jen sent me a note. She joined the OFC but her posting permissions haven't been enabled yet so she aske me to post this on her behalf:


Thanks to all of your for your kind wishes for the restoration of my
dad's guitar. This has been somewhat overwhelming and I'm at a loss to
adequately express my gratitude to Dan, Steve and the wider community
for all the support for this process and for my having a "brand new
40-year-old guitar." I started to get reacquainted with it at a couple
gigs this past weekend and an accomplished photographer took some posed
photos there that he will forward to me and I will pass on to you all
soon.
My dad was very self-deprecating about his guitar playing but of course
he was excellent and had worked hard to develop his unique
finger-picking style. I've been erratically focused at moving my own
playing forward and use the guitar more as a tool for songwriting and to
lay the barest sketch of my songs down for my virtuosic and sensitive
band to color in. So it's a bit embarrassing for me to have the
privilege of repossessing this wonderful guitar that I don't quite
deserve! But I will continue to try to put it to good use in crafting
thoughtful songs and spreading the word about my dad's legacy as still
vibrantly alive through the work of WhyHunger (http://whyhunger.org), on
whose Board I serve.
With gratitude, Jen

I watched Jen's live show last night. She and her trio played some really cool songs. She played her Ovation exclusively.

She has a new CD coming out soon. She's going into the studio next week. I think I heard her say last night that the songs she was playing were going to be on her new CD.

Glad to hear "the Martin or Ovation" predicament was short-lived! Lol!
