I WILL CONSIDER ALL FAIR AND REASONABLE OFFERS:




THIS GUITAR NEEDS TO BE PLAYED AND SEEN IN PERSON, TO TRULY APPRECIATE IT'S UNIQUENESS AND BEAUTY:




BECAUSE OF THE DIFFICULTY IN CAPTURING HIGH QUALITY PICTURES ON A HIGH GLOSS BLACK GUITAR WITHOUT SOME KIND OF DISTORTION OR REFLECTION, I HAVE UPDATED THE PICTURES OF THE GUITAR IN LIGHT CONDITIONS THAT SHOW THE LEAST AMOUNT OF REFLECTION THAT GIVE A BETTER REPRESENTATION OF THE FINISH QUALITY OF THIS GUITAR.




HERE IS A LINK TO SOME VIDEO'S OF THE GUITAR IN VARIOUS LIGHT CONDITIONS AND A SAMPLE OF HOW IT CAN SOUND AMPLIFIED:




KEEP IN MIND THAT THE AUDIO IS RECORDED ON A MONO INTERNAL POCKET VIDEO CAMERA MICROPHONE.








CUSTOM BUILT OVATION ADAMAS II 1885-5 SUPER SHALLOW BODY 12 STRING ACOUSTIC ELECTRIC WITH DELUXE OVATION MOLDED HARDSHELL CASE:




BUILT ORIGINALLY IN NEW HARTFORD, CT U.S.A IN 1996:




THEN CUSTOM UPGRADED IN 2008 WITH THE OP-PRO PREAMP, A NEW 5 PIECE ADAMAS W598 NECK WITH EBONY FRETBOARD AND REFINISHED WITH A GLOSS BLACK TOP AND BOWL:




THIS IS A "ONE OF A KIND" ADAMAS II 12 STRING FEATURING A CUSTOM REFINISHED UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON FIBER GLOSS BLACK TOP, WITH GLOSS BLACK SIDES AND BOWL:




ADAMAS IS THE LATIN WORD FOR DIAMOND IN ITS NATIVE FORM, CARBON.




KAMAN AEROSPACE USED CARBON FIBER IN COMPONENTS FOR SATELLITES AND SUPERSONIC AIRCRAFTS:




CHARLIE KAMAN REALIZED THAT IT WOULD MAKE AN EXCELLENT SOUNDBOARD MATERIAL.




CARBON FIBER, OR GRAPHITE, BEHAVES VERY MUCH LIKE WOOD.




THE ADAMAS TOP IS MADE OF AEROSPACE-GRADE GRAPHITE IN LONG FIBERS, DESIGNED TO RESPOND LIKE SPRUCE.




AT ONE-THIRD THE WEIGHT OF A SPRUCE TOP, THE ADAMAS SOUNDBOARD RESPONDS QUICKER, SPEAKS LOUDER AND VIBRATES LONGER.




WHILE THERE HAVE BEEN MANY IMPROVEMENTS MADE OVER THE YEARS, THE CONCEPT HAS PROVEN ITSELF. THE ADAMAS IS STILL THE MOST ADVANCED ACOUSTIC GUITAR AVAILABLE ANYWHERE.








I WILL ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS BY PHONE ONLY:




INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER IN AN EMAIL




OR CALL ME AT 626-905-2049:




I CANNOT SHIP THIS GUITAR:




UNLIKE eBAY, YOU WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO INSPECT IT IN PERSON AND PLAY IT BEFORE YOU BUY IT:




KEPT IN A SMOKE FREE ENVORONMENT:
