    Looks like nylon string? That's not a Glen Campbell, from way back, model is it? Probably not as his model was probably a steel string.

    Update

    Somewhat similar, but not a Glen Campbell model.

    Yummy! I see no reason to continue to resist, John, unless you are saving for another Guild. Hope that helps.

    Ovation offered a limited run back in 2001 called the Collector's Edition that featured Curly Redwood tops. That looks just like one of those guitars.

    Beautiful guitar. I don't think you'll find anything but co-dependent encouragers here.

    Some one bought it, off Reverb, shortly after I posted the picture. It had a slight belly lift, according to the seller, but the price was dropped to $650. It was one of the 2001 Collectors FR models for "Figured Redwood". All of about 650 were made. I guess I was saved by someone from buying another guitar I don't need or would have time to play a lot. After the honeymoon phase of course.

    An Ovation collector, expert, fellow poster in another forum, said it would have been a STEAL at $650. I should have clicked first and asked questions later.

    Ah don't second guess yourself John if it was meant to be it would have happened . Maybe just maybe it would of cost you more in repairs if the top was lifting .

    That was my concern. My question to the seller was to find out how MUCH belly bulge there was and to see how quickly they responded. They responded pretty quick, with " Sorry , it just sold. "
