    Comments about Applause Elite Mid-Depth Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I needed to replace an ovation for a class due to the neck braking. I had just bought the ovation case. I had to replace it two days before my recital. I paid for 2 day delivery and had no problems.This Applause has great projection w/o an amp. Didn't have to adjust the action it was surprisingly still in tune and sounds as beautiful as it looked. I will continue to purchase and recommend GC as much as possible.
