I just bought a cheap $95 bass from CL - never heard of Ovation making a solid body other than the Magnum so I was intrigued, besides price was cheap. So what the heck it had a funky sticker on it (or what looked like a sticker), it was worth a shot. Tried to find some preliminary info, didn't have much time as I had to look at the bass in about an hour, only info I could find was the bass is a BC2 model, not many were made and it looked a lot like a Kramer or one of the many other 80's basses made at that time (1987). What intrigued me most were posts that it was apparently a collector's bass these days- not sure about the true value of the bass as estimates were all over the place, but for $95, it was worth finally owning an Ovation solid body bass I've always wanted to try as a kid, just not the model I was looking for (the Magnum) lol! Oh well, someday. Picked up the bass, and it actually sounds good (will give it a full tryout tomorrow though), only problem is that sticker was not a sticker, it was a chrome emblem that I can't remove !! Why would anyone do such a thing??!!?? Anyway, given the price, I've let it slide as it plays a lot better than I expected. A few dings on the back, one knob is not original, one saddle isn't original or even the same color (grrr) so I'll probably get those corrected, I guess I'll grow to appreciate having a constant companion on this bass (just not to be played in front of puritanical family members or friends).
