I have owned a 12 string Balladeer for 2 years. I must say that when I purchased it the strings were so high that I almost got rid of it. On a last ditch try, I went to Guitar Center and explained my concerns to the tech on duty. He was easily able to lower the strings thus making this guitar not only a great sounding instrument but an easy playing one also. The sound is excellent without an amp and even better when plugged in. I do not think that you can purchase a better sounding 12 string for the money but the real message here is no matter what you purchase, have it "set up". I almost gave away a great sounding guitar because I hesitated to go see a professional who could adjust it.
As a long time Ovation Player I find that the Balladeer is not only the nicest of all Ovation guitars but is also the best sounding. The neck on the Balladeer is a perfect cut that is more than just conducive to speed and proficiency in chord changes, it's like therapy for the guitar players hands. Play this guitar acousticlly and you will be impressed by the brilliant sound, play it plugged in and prepare to be blown away by its presence. Don't let the composite body fool you, this guitar CAN, WILL and DOES compete/keep up with Martin, Gibson and Taylor.
I play all sorts of things from acoustic to electric guitar, to keyboards, but this 12 string acoustic played great. I would only use it for a couple of songs, but it make a huge difference.
Great guitar for the money. Nice highs and lows. Neck is sturdy and fretting is easy. Overall a great value. Sounds great plugged or unplugged.
