The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!

At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.

This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.


This Vintage 1970's Ovation 1617-4 is a classic guitar from one of the world's most time honored and celebrated guitar manufacturers of all time. It features a solid Spruce top that is appointed with a stunning soundhole rosette that's not only an Ovation tradition, but a pinnacle of the time period.

The 5-ply Maple/Mah neck offers added tone and stability to this already warm-toned guitar, which is rounded out by Ovation's classic Lyrachord bowl-back design. The Rosewood fretboard is adorned with diamond inlays that perfectly compliment this already eye-catching 6 string.

This acoustic electric guitar also features a Piezo pickup system with the classic and simple single-knob volume pot design - allowing ease of use on stage or in the studio so you can just focus on your performance.

Topped off with gold tuners and the much loved Ovation headstock, this guitar is a definite collector's dream.

Bonus, it comes with the hardshell case pictured!

Being a vintage instrument, this does have a few bumps and bruises on it, but nothing that sacrifices the integrity of the instrument, just adds a little character to this storied guitar. 

This guitar came in to The Farm on trade and is in good condition.  We have tested and inspected this guitar and it plays as expected. We have taken detailed photos, please take a moment to look through them before purchasing.
