About a year and a half ago I was shopping around for a decent 5-string acoustic. I came across a new Ovation at a Guitar Center in NY. It is a very nice bass, sounds pretty good unplugged and sounds great plugged in. The string spacing is bit narrow, but other then that it is a great playing bass. The interesting thing is I have never seen another one! The one I bought was the only one they had (the salesman did not know much about) and it is not even listed on the Ovation web site. I emailed Ovation and they replied stating they only made a few as an experiment and would most likely not put it into production. So it seems I have a rare bird......Anyone else out there in Bass Land have one?
