An ovation for Ted

By HobbitDave
Ted is enjoying the Christmas season, he likes my Ovation guitar, and does his own version of fretting chords by sitting on the strings. He prefers this using a capo (the black pointy thing at the far end of the neck) - as it lowers the action and makes it more comfortable for his bottom Wink

Happy New Year to all.

He looks like he's not one of those high-strung musicians! Just a very pluck-y fellow!!
Happy New Year!!

Thanks so much everyone for the kind and funny comments, Ted says he really welcomes them, and they've made his day. Sometimes he sits on a small saucer and plays slide guitar Wink
Much appreciated, Neil, thought you might like this one, it's a USA Ovation semi, quite an early one with burr maple top and built in pre-amp. After straightening the truss rod in the neck (a scary job as they can split...fortunately all went well) it has a very nice blues action, much faster than I'd have expected from a semi. Takes me back to days of when...Wink
Thanks and from Ted, folks!

I reckon he's fretting about that first, Rick, but he's a plucky little bear!
Happy New Year,
