More than fifty years have passed since Charles Kaman brought forward his idea of a modern era  guitar to the global market. He himself being an ambitious guitar player, made his dreams come true  by starting his own, slightly different guitar company. On the one hand inspired by traditional  standards, the other hand equipped with an open mind, that came naturally as a result from his  profession as a helicopter manufacturer. He dared to approach guitar making in a way that is still  polarizing today. A specific fiber-plastic composite (Lyrachord®) combined with a parabolic  body shape (Roundback®) were the ingredients for a completely new tonal experience on the well  populated acoustic guitar market of its day. The final breakthrough was fuelled by the  acoustic/electric version of the Ovation guitar. Again, Kaman‘s experiences from the aerospace  industry became the trigger to this development. The result was the piezoelectric pickup, the first of  its kind. It enabled acoustic guitar players to come to the fore in a band arrangement or soloists to  play in large open-air venues. Still today this unique sound, together with the playing comfort of an  electric guitar, makes Ovation the must-have for guitar players in clubs and stadiums alike.
