Representing the ultimate craftsmanship from Ovation’s flagship workshop in New Hartford, Connecticut, the Adamas 1688 GT features a unidirectional carbon-graphite suspended soundboard with Quintad bracing, which provides a bold, clear voice and lightning-fast response. Each top is precisely fitted with “AST” – Adamas Suspended Top – technology that allows the ultra-thin top to vibrate more freely than traditionally constructed acoustic guitars.
The Deep Contour Cutaway Bowl composite body is made by hand from fiberglass cloth and works in tandem with the top to enhance frequency response and improve projection. The Adamas GT’s detailed ornamentation—including a carved peghead scroll, carved walnut bridge, and elaborately decorated soundholes—make a striking visual statement.
These 12 string Adamas are all custom ordered from the Custom Shop in New Hartford, Connecticut. They are not production guitars and are exclusive to Red Blanket.
