Found during Ovation's move to their new facilites, this new old stock Adamas Viper is extremely rare! There were only a half dozen or so made at the Custom Shop, and one of those resides with RBG's owner.
The hollowed out basswood body is capped with a carbon fiber composite 'Aluminized' top. The guitar is perfectly paired with Don Lace's Alumitone pickups, and of course Ovation's patented high output acoustic pickup in the aluminum bridge. Being able to blend the Ovation pickup with the Alumitones give this guitar a wide variety of tonal capabilities not found in any other instrument. This unique instrument has a voice all it's own.
