Al Di Meola Owned Played & Recorded Ovation Guitar The Very Guitar Used to Record Mediterranean Sundance With Paco De Lucia
Well, what can you say? This is the very guitar used by Al Di Meola to record the 5+ million selling song “Mediterranean Sundance”. The photograph you see below of Al and Paco was taken the very day that they made the recording, the song also featured on the hugely popular album “Elegant Gypsy”.
The guitar has been in Al’s possession from day one until now, there have never been any other owners. As you can see, the guitar today sports a Roland Synth pickup for Al’s live and recorded work, the pickup install is easily reversed.
In Al’s own words, “one of his favorite & best sounding Ovation guitars”, a genuine piece of Guitar history with impeccable provenance.
The guitar is very important in showcasing the professional and personal relationship between Al and Paco, both representing a powerhouse of musical genius and jaw dropping technical ability, RIP Paco De Lucia.
