Ovation Electric Guitars - 1974 Breadwinner

SOLD - Contact us for more options

Launched in 1972, the Ovation Breadwinner 1251 not only looks like a medieval battle axe, but is also a balanced, ergonomic guitar specifically designed for sitting. The upper fret access is particularly easy, making soloing a breeze - and those 24 frets give you even more options. With a Mahogany body and textured tan finish, it has a two-piece, bolt-on bounded Honduras Mahogany neck and an Ebony fingerboard. The scale is 24 3/4" long, and a comfortable 1 11/16" nut width. The dual large single-coil pickups are incredibly versatile, and especially great for jazz music. Perfect for the studio due to its ergonomic design and emphasis on stationary playing, the Ovation Breadwinner 1251 is a fun guitar - excuse me, axe - that can really do a lot. Here in Very Good condition, it has some small dings to its body and a chip on its cutaway, but nothing that will affect its playability. Includes chip case.
