I just got this guitar as a gift and was wondering if there was any way to date it. Its an ovation pacemaker 1115-1 12 string.
IIRC, the Pacemakers (and your model) were made during the early to mid 70s. They may have been made into the 80s too, but I know they were made in the early to mid 70s.
there sure is... check it out
thanks alot, turns out its a 78
