I know that this was pretty much his only acoustic guitar from 1973 (the Buckingham Nicks Polydor album) up to about 1982 (when Mirage came out.) Did he get tired of playing them, did he want a different guitar that sounded better and that the strings didn't break on them? He did have a cocaine induced habit of throwing his guitars onstage so I wonder if that's why he stopped playing them. Most everything (Songbird, Sara, Tusk, Landslide, Never Going Back Again, the Bob Welch solo version of Sentimental Lady, Second Hand News etc.) that was on Rumours is an Ovation Balladeer acoustic guitar. Those are pretty good guitars. He also owns a Martin D28 acoustic guitar, and he's also been known to play his Rick Turner model 1 acoustic solidbody electric guitar, Rickenbacker 330 12 string electric guitar, a Gretsch, Dobro, Taylor 6 string 814ce and Taylor 12 string acoustic guitars. A video was posted a few months ago of him playing a Fender Acoustasonic Jazzmaster electric acoustic guitar, so I guess he's back to endorsing Fender. Most of my friends who know Lindsey pretty well know that he is an Ovation player. I think Bob Welch played Ovation acoustic guitars too, but I am not very knowledgeable about what acoustic guitars he used. Most if not all of the Go Insane and Law and Order solo albums Lindsey put out in the Eighties were composed on Ovation models. Does he still own any Ovation guitars, and would any of you like to post pictures of his Ovation guitars? Please let me know. looking back now, it’s cool how many of my favorite guitarists played ovation guitars. Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, Nancy Wilson, Steve Lukather, Paul McCartney to name a few.
