This Applause guitar was manufactured in Moosup, Connecticut at the Ovation plant before Applause was officially part of the Ovation family. Neck is made of cast aluminium with integrated aluminum frets giving it a very interesting sound. They were made 1975-82.

The top is laminate spruce and the neck is composite - same molds as Ovation.

Example at right shows fretboard wear which shows the aluminium underneath.
