I have had other ovations, this one, the beauty of the finish caught me. Compared to my older one, this one has a deeper tone unplugged. When connected to an amp, I have not had the quack problems Ovations are known for. So far has been fun to play

I bought this thing because the playability was nice... at first. I was also very attracted to modern looks and the finish of it. After I got it home I noticed an awful buzzing sound coming from the body when I played the low e, the in house tech couldn't figure out the problem and kind of blamed it on thumb technique. I then traded it in for a new one. Got the new one home only to discover that the machine heads were junk and I had to increase the action to an uncomfortable level to eliminate buzz. I then proceeded to trade that one in for a new one because of the unstable machine heads. This new one came with the quality control card and played like a dream until I tried tuning it down to flat standard. Awful buzzing came from the body when playing the low E, then when I tried to tune it back up fret buzz was everywhere. I had to loosen the truss rod to a ridiculous level, adding almost a millimeter and half to the action, and I'm still getting buzzing from the body. This thing is getting returned for sure.

Beautiful and Great Sounding

By Larry

Comments about Applause Elite Series AE44IIG-VV Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The finish on this guitar is wonderful and it is dressed and set up very well. The electronics are fine and the sound is beyond what I expected from a non-wood bowl. It is excellent in its own right. My only personal complaint is its pronounced V-profile neck, which is uncomfortable to my hand's physical shape. If I'd known it was a V neck I would have probably passed, but the look and sound of this guitar is worth the discomfort for me.

      Comments about Applause Elite Series AE44IIG-VV Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This is the third Ovation that I have owned and have always wanted one with the "offset" soundholes so when this one came on sale, I couldn't resist! Like all the others I've owned, this one has an excellent neck and fretboard and the finish is absolutely beautiful, especially for the price. It also has a built-in tuner and 3-band EQ. I've used the tuner but I haven't plugged it into an amp yet but I'm sure it will sound great! Now for how it sounds...I was amazed at how loud it is unplugged. Not obnoxious by any means but it really does project through the offset soundholes which is exactly what I was hoping for! And I was not disappointed by the neck either...it was set up very well and the action is perfect. It holds tuning and I haven't found anything weird or unusual about the guitar.

      I mainly play guitar for fun now but have played in bands in the past and would not hesitate to use this guitar on stage or for recording! This is an excellent guitar for the price! Highly recommended.

      I've always wanted a round back. Although this was pretty much an impulse buy( I usually talk myself out of buying for me) I am very glad I did. Plays and sounds great. I have always heard you need to play through an amp but sounds great even unplugged. Very pleased.

        Best Uses

        • would use it for anything

        Comments about Applause Elite Series AE44IIG-VV Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I have been playing guitar for over 50 years and have owned many guitars, expensive and not so expensive, including Guild, Gibson, Martin, Breedlove and Ovation. After being forced to retire, I had to sell what I had and needed a guitar that would fit my fingerpicking style and wouldn't kill my budget. I am very picky about the feel and sound of a guitar, but realized I might have to settle due to my price range. I have purchased several lower priced guitars during the past few months, but have ended up returning them or trading them in for something else. I was ready to give up, but when I saw this beautiful guitar on sale, I decided to take one more chance. I couldn't be happier. When I played the floor model at GC, I was amazed at the sound and feel of this guitar and bought it immediately . I plan on keeping it until I can afford a higher end Ovation. I want to thank Steve, Scott, and the other guitar guys at GC in Jax for putting up with me and for working with me over the past few years.
