Ovation CC74

I made this baritone out of an Ovation CC74. According to what I have read, these basses were made from 1990 to 1993 and had a list price of $599. There is paperwork in the included gig bag that indicates that the bass was sold used by Guitar Center in San Francisco on 10-30-92. There is a slight flattening at the narrow part of the headstock that is not immediately noticeable, a couple of small dings on the top that can only be seen at certain angles, and some light scratches that are not obvious. Other than that, this guitar is in remarkable condition for being around 20 years old. It is aging very nicely.

It has a solid spruce top, a mahogany neck, a bowl back, and a very nice electronics package. It comes with a very nice soft padded Guitar Center gig bag that appears to be the same age, the paperwork I found in the bag, and a truss rod wrench. Sold - Thank you Mr. Kim!
