Ovation Richie Sambora RSE225-5 Signature Elite Double Neck Super Shallow Guitar. Ovation brings you the extreme iconic instrument: the Richie Sambora Elite Double Neck guitar.
Combining 6 and 12-string guitars to create a single, innovative instrument opens a new world of possibilities. Richie's signature mother-of-pearl star inlays give the neck and body a unique, custom look. With a spruce top and lightweight bracing designed to enhance punch and projection, this design sonically delivers both the 6 and 12 string tone across the spectrum. The Elite multi soundhole design offers classic Ovation looks and sound.
Both slim necks are easy to play, and twin cutaways on the super shallow, Lyrachord® composite body allow easy access to either fretboard. Built in Ovation Op-24+ electronics make this a stage-ready performance guitar that will have you rethinking what is possible when playing live. A custom hardshell case is included. This particular instrument has a very soft dent in the clearcoat on the top between the six-string bridge and the edge of the body.
There is also a small cloudy marking in the finish on the back of the twelve-string neck. This is not a dent and is completely smooth to the touch. We have included close-up photos of these imperfections.
The top of the guitar has some very fine polishing scratches that we unable to capture on camera. Aside from what we have described, this instrument is in mint condition.
We have given this guitar a thorough setup to make sure both necks are properly adjusted and easy to play. Ovation consistently leaves the nut slots very high at the factory, causing the guitars to feel stiff and difficult to play at the first few frets near the nut. We have filed the nut slots on this guitar to the correct heights and adjusted the saddle heights as well.
Both necks now play low and easy, without any fretbuzz. The Ovation GC9115 Double Neck hardshell case pictured is brand new and included. Bracing: Ovation Modified X Bracing.Design: Super Shallow, Double Cutaway. Neck: Dual 5 Piece Mahogany/Maple. Inlays: Richie Sambora White Stars.
Fretboard Radius: 11 13/16 / 300mm. Nut: 1 11/16 / 43mm.Tuning Machines: Ovation Die-cast Gold. Strings: Adamas OV1818E/ OV1616E Light Gauge. What's the deal with Factory 2nd?
