Here's a 1974 Ovation Breadwinner in excellent condition. The Breadwinner was a solid body electric guitar manufactured by the Ovation Guitar Company. It stands out as one of their rare solid body electric models and notably, was the first mass-produced American guitar equipped with active electronics. Its distinctive ergonomic body, crafted from mahogany and resembling an axe shape, was designed not only for aesthetics but also for balance and comfort. The guitar features its two original toroidal single-pole pickups, along with a master volume and tone control that adjusts treble (center position is neutral), a three-way pickup selector (Neck, Bridge, Neck + Bridge Out of Phase configuration), and a notch filter switch designed to filter out mid frequencies. This Breadwinner has been set up by our in-house luthier, and is ready for the stage/studio!
