Hi Mark,

Welcome to the Gibson Owners Group!

Hi Mark, welcome among my friends :) You've got a pretty nice Adamas Millenium! It's a limited series, isn't it? The only Ovation knock-off I own is an Applause ukulele, looking like a mini Adamas! Feel free to listen to my music, share, comment, or whatsoever.

Greetings from France, cheers!
