    When I was younger I always wanted one of those late 70's Ovation electrics, vipers, deacon and breadwinner in particular. I never quite could get one. I was messing around ebay today. I was surprised to see the breadwinner still going for $1200-$1300. I need to do a mental adjustment on these things.

    There's a range; the Vipers and Preachers can still be had for around $500.

    The breadwinner was the one that looked the best of the line to me. I guess everyone else as well.

    I got a Preacher last year in a trade deal, around $400 in value. Fun guitar.

    Eastwood does a copy of the Breadwinner.

    I like the look of it and it seems to be about $700.
