    Ovation Adamas Custom-Made Acoustic Guitar for David Allen Coe. A 1981 gold sparkle on black Adamas Ovation acoustic stereo electric guitar, purchased by David Allen Coe, for the film originally titled "Lady Grey" - later changed to the title "Country Girl" - starring Ginger Alden, Elvis Presley's girlfriend at the time of his death. Ginger has signed the front of the guitar in the intricate woodwork. The guitar is simply stunning in detail and has custom "everything!" There is a small crack in the heel of the neck that does not go all the way through. Includes an Ovation hardcase (with two DAC stickers on it) and a Letter of Authenticity, handwritten by David Allen Coe; there is a label inside the guitar stating "Custom made for David Allen Coe" and it's signed by Bill Camen, president of Ovation Guitars. The guitar was David Allen Coe's main stage and studio guitar. There are many videos on YouTube of him playing it. COA From Heritage Auctions.
