Representing the ultimate craftsmanship from Ovation’s flagship workshop in New Hartford, Connecticut, the Adamas 1688 GT features a unidirectional carbon-graphite suspended soundboard with Quintad bracing, which provides a bold, clear voice and lightning-fast response. Each top is precisely fitted with “AST” – Adamas Suspended Top – technology that allows the ultra-thin top to vibrate more freely than traditionally constructed acoustic guitars.

The non-cutaway Deep Bowl composite body is made by hand from fiberglass cloth and works in tandem with the top to enhance frequency response and improve projection. The Adamas GT’s detailed ornamentation—including a carved peghead scroll, carved walnut bridge, and elaborately decorated soundholes—make a striking visual statement.

Damon helped me pick out not one but two 12 string Adamas Guitars, a blue/beige and a custom color he calls Bleen which is a blue green. I've owned one of the early Adamas 1, 6 string guitars for the past 37 years and I couldn't pass on the opportunity to get the 12 string guitars. Damon worked with me through the whole process and shipped the guitars out to Hawaii right away. They both arrived packed well for the long journey and arrived without any issues. The craftsmanship is second to none and the tonal quality is crystal clear and unique to the Ovation Adamas design. Although I don't play professionally anymore, I spend hours playing these guitars and just enjoying the rich full bodied tones. I'm now considering shopping for another 6 string Adamas that has the upgraded electronics but will spend more time getting used to 12 string for now. Mahalo to Damon and Red Blanket Guitars for the opportunity to own these custom guitars!
