  • Great Guitar

    As reviewed by A.K on 5/8/2010

    Everything about this guitar say?s solid. Acoustically this guitar is just as great as anything you are going to pick up and play in its price range and above. Plugged in this guitar is awesome! If you do your research like I do before a purchase, you?ll notice this guitar has many of the same features as some of the more expensive ovation models. Such as OP-PRO pre amp, pick-ups and AA solid spruce top. The finish is easy to keep clean, no finger marks or smugges show up at all. The finish will take getting a use to. Its different then anything else out there. It is also a little rougher on the bottom side to help keep it from sliding of your lap. The tuners are tight and the strings are fed though the bridge instead of held by pegs, which means great string tension. Tune it to your liking and it stays there. The fret board is clean and fast for those who like to go between an electric an acoustic guitars. All in all you can?t go wrong with this guitar. If you are thinking about getting this thing buy it and know you did the right thing. If it?s a little out of your price range wait and save for it, well worth the wait.

  • Tone & quality baby.

    As reviewed by X on 11/28/2009

    I came across some vids of Al DiMeola. I noticed his Ovation and came here only to find my old 1778 Elite. Long story short: I sat in the Seattle GC with the 1778 across from a player w/a Martin D16RW that I was considering. The tone and playability of the 1778 was amazing and held its own. Deep lows. Rich, bright highs. I bought it only to trade it twd my ash am dlx strat. I miss it. Onboard preamp & tuner. No mess black satin poly finish over the spruce top. Plays any style easily. Btw: the price is better now too. You'll need a strap to keep it on your lap...but just try Ovation.

  • Made me an ovation fan!

    As reviewed by Paul Morea on 1/24/2012

    Ovtion review Like the title and the other writers I have NEVER been an ovation fan. This model kills my previous assumption that ovations had "Thin sounds and horribly unplugged. I just got back from GC returning my dean exhibition, and needed an electric acoustic all black and thin bodied. Salesman pointed this model and the Martin 000cxe. The Martin sounded sweet but was a few hundred out of my price and didn't have the aggressive looks I wanted.? UNPLUGGED: ?wow. Sounded big enough to compare to most dreads in that price range and definitely bigger than ANY thin body. The bass resonated and really surprised me. Neck felt tight, smooth maple, thin and easy to navigate. No inlays but I feel it adds to the minimalist feel of the axe. Now I'm intrigued. PLUGGED IN:? So now this beasts really shines. The lows are powerful and the highs can be dialed in any way I liked them. I was pulling off artificial harmonics with ease. From alt rock, to grunge, to metal and more (playin some slipkot loudly) just seemed delightful. Fr superior than the Dean I just returned and better than any other thin body they had in the shop. Played ibanez, Taylor and Alvarez next and this one just one me over.? OVERALL:? So styling is awesome. Feels solid but not heavy or bulky. Only a bit thicker than a thin body. The finish is an acquired taste. it's a rough texture, kinda like rhino body on a truck. Seems and feels indestructible and so for gigging this is a plus. Also, no need to worry about smudges or minor scratches. Love the lack of bridge pins for ease of changing and tension. Kinda bummed that there's no XLR jack but can just get a converter. Preamp is solid and tuner is easy to operate. Blacks ovation tuners and machine heads are bad ass as well and add to the awesome looks.? I bought this tonight and hope to gig it a few times to be sure I like it but seems like a dream so far.?
