California isn't any better than Connecticut for producing. Connecticut has got that Democratic governor that is driving the state
Into the ground. California has the environmentalists that are strangling industry their own way.
100% correct. California is a terrible place for a manufacturing company of any type.

|All Y'all got it figured out yet? |
- Tacoma would be a great place for a guitar factory.
- I would like to hear what the next plan is from DW/Ovation.
|EJ 16s or 17s, or those hybrid sets Beal talks about now?|

I think they should move to Texas, maybe Austin. Good environment, low taxes, and a gas station guy who can come by and kibitz......
plus guitar-friendly humidity levels most of the year!

Yeah.. three pages worth for the past days, and we still don't know squat about the outcome. Or did you mean past days as in a group of guitar codgers sitting around dwelling the historical glory? It's that, too. But like NerdyDave said.. there's a huge supply of those still out there to enjoy, many still in great shape, and many owned by the aforesaid codgers, including myself, so I'm good with it. Have to be.

|May have to look in AK when I am there next month to see if they have any A's left in my dream section. They had a WT A 12er last time.. Was a good run.. We who know the special breed of the brand and own some are lucky. My sons will get mine at dirt time. In the end, Olds and Pontiac were cancelled due to low sales and higher profit of core brands. Live the dream and carry on.|

|Hello, Everyone, |
Thanks, Jonmark Stone, for the information. It was/is just our wonky Canadian weather that was not letting me find the Ovation website. It snowed again this week, after we had an ice storm here on the weekend? Yikes! I played one of the original Larrivee, "boutique", guitars, a custom-made L-9 at the time, when I was studying classical guitar in Toronto in 1977. Jean Larrivee taught many young luthiers their craft, ( and yes, you all know who they are, because people now buy their, "boutique", guitars), and other companies like Godin came into being, but these are now USA-based as well. We are definitely losing the middle class here in CANADA, too, because the world has changed so much, since OVATION was introduced to the guitar world in the 1960's. If you have a GO-PRO camera now, YOU-TOO can have your own YOU-TUBE channel, w/ subscribers galore. But will an OVATION guitar be featured in these? Should we loyal OVATION guitar players/ fans continue to subscribe there just to find out, or will we always be looking at videos of our favorite guitar from the point of view the past?

|Spring has sprung in Portland, Oregon. |
It was 70° and partly Sunny.
I will have sunburn on my arms after it matures overnight.
Why am I telling you this?
In Winter weather I use my Adamii and Composite Acoustics guitars.
Since the weather has warmed, I can take my wood-topped guitars out.
Earlier today I took my (made in 1997) Ovation Parlor 5741 guitar out for an hour or so.
It got compliments.
After a Lunch-break, I took out the Sweetwater 1778T (made in 2007).
Some guy told me that it was an Awesome looking guitar.
Old USA Ovations are Still great guitars.
There are 308 used Ovations on eBay right now.
There are 572 used Ovation on Reverb right now.
If the corporate folks don't ever make another Ovation, there will still be a bunch around.
|please keep politics off the OFC |
I know we all need someone to blame but that is no constructive and has no purpose here.
All indications are not good for the USA brand....with 5 people in the shop the discontinuing of Adamas guitars, the lay off of the service department...well what exactly can anyone think.....
guess we need a knight on a white horse to ride in....anyone have a few million to spare???

|I thought of the same thing, Al, but I just reinvested my retirement plan. My horse was a bit too small, I'm afraid. Maybe Shetland pony. I can't afford to turn a small fortune into an even smaller fortune.|
|This is sad news indeed. |
I had not heard they were discontinuing the Adamas model ...that SUCKS!!!!!
Will they continue to do repairs on our existing guitars I have a couple i've been meaning to send in,guess I better get off my butt
I think Ovation was competing with itself by offering both Korean and American versions of Custom Legends And Elites,if you weren't a die hard fan like us and had a choice between a Custom Legend AX or an American made custom Legend for twice the price which would you buy,the cheaper one most of the time I bet,I hope DW finds a way to keep Ovation alive in the meantime I have a collection of some of there finest to appreciate.
|I am not sure if they are currently taking repairs....my best guess is no.|
