NGD - O-01

NGD - Composite Acoustics GX RT

Guitars made out of carbon fiber and other composite materials are more and more popular these days. Many are selling their wood based instruments and going carbon fiber only. If you own such an instrument or want to learn about them, join the group.

"I am also watching Ebay and my local Craigslist. I just picked up a perfect 2 owner 70's Glen Campbell Ovation from some one local for a great price. I am trying to find a good 12 string Glen Campbell one for a good price."

Edward Sparks replied to Paul Walters's discussion Fender is closing the New Hartford Ovation facility in the group Round Back Guitars
"Wow, this is a shock, but then I guess not!  I remember in the late 60's and 70's when the Ovation was all you saw in the hands of players on MTV and concerts...they were the best in amplified sound for acoustic then.  Now days…"

Randy Lee Hano replied to Paul Walters's discussion Fender is closing the New Hartford Ovation facility in the group Round Back Guitars
"That is really sad. I own 4 Ovations but only two of them are US made. They will be sought after even more so by players wanting the round back line. Sadly I have been trying to source the right screw to attach straploks for my round backs with no…"
