The guitar is in the metallic Ruby Burst finish on the carbon fiber top. It has some light buckle scratches from touring, and still have the gaff tape on the preamp, just as Melissa had it during concerts. It was personally brought to the charity auction and guarded by a representative of Ovation / Kaman, as previous guitars had been auctioned for over $100k (see auction catalog description). So here is a rare chance to get a personal guitar from Melissa Etheridge's 2004 Summer Tour, for a small fraction of that!! Comes with the "Chainsaw" authentication (Melissa's guitar tech), 2006 auction catalog, and Melissa's custom sound hole plug installed on the cutaway's upper bout, and the OEM hardshell case.
