Ovation guitar serial number dating
Serial numbers tend to be stamped or written somewhere on the headstock or neck joint of the guitar.On some acoustic guitars, the serial number is on the inside of the sound hole.So I know it is impossible to figure out what year my Ovation celebrity CC057 is, because there is a 7 digit serial number making it an import, though the bowl is U. I am just wondering how much these Ovations are worth in general?It has a honey burst finish and the preamp is an OP-20. Although I don't profess to be an expert on all things Ovation, I do have a passion for their artistic and sonic beauty which I hope you will share.
