I've been thinking about getting this guitar and was wondering if anyone has seen it or played it before.

That is a good price for an ovation guitar, I don't know much about their range but the one's I've seen have been very expensive, which makes me wonder if they've compromised on craftmanship or materials. That aside, ovations play and sound very different to other acoustic/electric acoustics so I'd recommend trying one out before purchasing.

Looks nice though smile.gif

The guitar looks quite cool, and the price is great smile.gif

The built-in mp3 recorder can be handy to record some musical ideas when computer is not near

One minus is that the guitar has laminated top rolleyes.gif

Looks like a quality guitar to me. Ovation has some great guitar. I would suggest that you try it in the store, and plug it in the PA system to hear it properly.

Years ago I had a nice Ovation guitar. It played very well and sounded good, and for the price it was a good guitar. I did have a problem that ultimately made me get rid of it though. The back of the guitar is not traditionally shaped like most other acoustics. Since it is round vs. flat, it became a little frustrating for me to play while setting down because it kept sliding down my leg or hip unless I held it a certain way. The coating on the back is a little slippery.

Could be only me though. You may not have that problem. Just something to consider. Other than that, it was a nice guitar and easy to play. But, definitely try one out first.

wink.gif Ovation are producing guitars now with a different shaped back called "contour". This makes them much easier and more comfortable to play either sitting or standing. I have an LX Balladeer and find it very comfortable.

Thanks. I didn't know that. I had mine in 1988. Guess I'm a geezer. tongue.gif
