Ovation Guitars Expands Glen Campbell Signature Collection

The all-new mid-priced models are available with mid-depth composite backs in cutaway and non-cutaway versions.

Oxnard, CA (October 23, 2018) -- Ovation Guitars has announced the launch of two new Glen Campbell Signature acoustic/electric guitars. The all-new mid-priced models are available with mid-depth composite backs in cutaway and non-cutaway versions and are shipping immediately.

Throughout his more than fifty-year recording career, Glen Campbell faithfully played Ovation guitars, and many of the unique design features incorporated in the Glen Campbell Signature collection have resulted from this long-term relationship. Whether in the studio, on stage or even on television, an Ovation guitar was never far from the side of this multi-Grammy Award winner.

These most recent models are based on Glen’s iconic “1771” and feature an easily playable shallow, Lyrachord composite body and a AAA solid Sitka Spruce top. They feature the traditional Legend sound hole with maple leaf rosette surround, diamond shaped mother ofpearlfret board inlays and classic 70’s single volume/tone knob that controls Ovation’s feedback-free integrated electronics.

The hallmark of any Ovation guitar is superior playability attributed to the scale of the neck,string-to- string balance and hassle-free plug-and-play reliability. The new Campbell models are no exception. They have a warm, resonant and consistent tone with plenty of sustain and projection. Both the Natural Cedar non-cutaway (1627VL-4GC) and Sunburst cutaway (1771VL-1GC) come complete with durable nylon gig bag and retail for $1,829.99.
