Back in 1984 Ovation put out a high-end guitar to compete with Gibson’s Les Paul. The Ultra GP Series. At the time, it was priced at about $400, the same price as a Les Paul. Guess what, they didn’t sell. Not because of the design – it was an incredible guitar – but tough to complete with Gibson head to head with a guitar from a company that is famous for acoustics. Consequently, only 400-500 were made. Recently the GP has become a sought-after vintage and prices have soared over $2,000 each. Last year I got tired of trying to find an original and decided it was time for Eastwood to get the re-issue machine cranked up again. Last week we finally received the prototype. OH-MY-GOD!!!! This baby is an absolute treat to play. I own a few vintage Les Paul guitars, and now I have a new favorite player, the ULTRA-GP. This might be the most well-balanced and comfortably guitars I have ever played! Limited Edition Release. We are building a very small run in Cheryburst or Black.

Hi – I have an Ultra GP 1431-e guitar. It has been sitting in its case in my closet for years. It is in great shape and it is time to sell it. Can someone help me out? I have no idea how to properly sell a good guitar.
I’m from Poland and i want to by Black one 🙂
Update : I was able to sell my Ultra GP 1431-e guitar a few years ago. I still have people asking about it, which is neat but it has found a new home.
