Over the years I owned about thirty Ovation and Adamas guitars. From 202o I started to trim down my collection. The reasons are various, but mostly because I decided to keep only the guitars that I actually play. Also, I realized that I could not reach the sound of John Prine (my source of musical inspiration, who mostly plays Martin dreadnoughts and a Gibson J-200) with the Ovations, so I got myself a D-28 and a J-200, which I play extensively. Obviously I did not change my mind about Ovations, which I still love and consider outstanding guitars. Those that I kept are the really best of the best.
