The AdjustOvation Build:
This is a complete start to finish custom build. The base is an Ovation Applause with the upper bout holes. I planned out this build for several months and then put the pieces together for this build over a few months while buying other parts for my guitar site.
The idea was to build a Jazz guitar . I wanted a vibrato. I wanted a roller bridge. Things that must seem impossible on what is essentially an 1/8" spruce topped acoustic guitar. In this build I will start with the raw parts: The ovation husk, the black nickel pieces I purchased to complement the build, and I will take you through step by step to the finished product, an acoustic-electric Jazz style guitar. The details are meticulously photographed and explained in detail, over 80 color photos and illustrations. Over 50 pages. If you are planning on a custom build take a look at this book and use it to reinforce your own plans.
