Cool and unique instruments, that's what this is all about!  It isn't a 50's Tele, but it is a rare bird indeed.  

Not only is this Breadwinner all original, it is in fantastic condition.  There are some dings here and there, but overall it has to be the cleanest one out there in this Blue Lyrachord finish.

From the web: "Using their knowledge of high-tech aerospace composites, Ovation developed Lyrachord, a patented material comprising interwoven layers of glass filament and bonding resin. The first successful design, built by luthier Gerry Gardner, went into production soon after the company was established."

The guitar also plays very well.  The frets are in excellent shape and the truss rod was tested to make sure there is room for future adjustment.  

The original case is in excellent condition as well.

It really is a package for the collector.
