      The summet of Ovation artistry with ultra-modern materials and a striking design.

      In response to countless requests, classic Adamas styling now appears in mandolin form with the special 30-instrument limited edition MM80-NWT Mandolin.

      Distinctively powerful tone sings from the diminutive Lyrachord GS body with cutaway guitar shape and the carbon fiber twill top. The top features a thin birch core and Quintad “T”-shaped spruce bracing for superior acoustic response and projection. Other premium appointments include natural walnut top binding and classic Adamas hardwood “epaulets”; a smooth-playing walnut neck with soft “V” profile; bone nut; a black acrylic heel cap; a 21-fret resin impregnated walnut fingerboard with maple dot inlays and 1/16” white side dots; a rear loading wide walnut bridge with OCP1-K compensated ivory saddle; Schaller MG3 gold tuners with pearl buttons, and the Ovation mandolin pickup for loud, clear amplified tone.

      Comments about Ovation Adamas Limited Edition Acoustic-Electric Mandolin:

      I ran across this little gem at a recent music industry event. At that same show I tried many top-end mandolins by the biggest names in the business. So when I sat down with this I was expecting the usual thin acoustic sound Ovations are known for.

      Instead I was greated by one of the biggest and best mandolin tones I've ever encountered.

      The neck has a very nice profile and the matte finish feels great on the hand. I played sitting and found the instrument fit perfectly with great balance. I could have played for days if I could. And loud as a cannon without compromising sound.

      IME Ovation's strength is in their amplified sound, acoustic tone isn't usually a strong point. While I was not able to try it plugged in, I highly recommend this based on it's acoustic tone and playability alone.

      I was very pleasantly surprised and it gets my "Best of Show" award.
