Many companies tried to reinvent the design go guitars throughout the 1960's, with Ovation developing some of the more innovative models. Ovation founder Charles Kaman was heavily influenced by his work in aerospace engineering, leading to the revolutionary bowl back design find on Ovation guitars. One of the earliest adopters of Ovation guitars was country musician Glen Campbell, and this 1979 Signature model is a fine example of a top of the line Ovation instrument. The guitar is constructed from a Sitka Spruce top and composite bowl back, and features the original under saddle pickup system found on these guitars. The neck has a slim, almost electric guitar profile, with an ebony fretboard and pearl inlays. As one of the more deluxe Ovation models, this Glen Campbell signature features gold hardware and an ornate sound hole rosette design. This guitar also includes its original Ovation branded hard case.
