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.
