Second one's a charm.

By THEA SCHOEPFER

from Florida

Comments about Ovation Standard Elite 2778 AX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

My wife ordered me a Standard Deluxe for christmas. She was suppose to hide it from me as a suprise but in usual form, she lasted about 5 minutes after it was delivered before blurting it out. Actually, it was lucky she did. It was close to 90 days before christmas and my 30 day return would have long expired. The set up from the factory on the guitar was the worst I've ever seen. The action was set at 20/64ths. Almost unplayable in the upper register. I returned it to the local guitar center to have it worked on. Over 2 weeks later the guitar tech was still unsure if he would be able to get the action down to an acceptable 8/64ths. I was then told by Ovation and guitar center to return the guitar and a new one was ordered. I received the new guitar in 3 business days and to my suprise it was outstanding. This is a really great guitar . . . if the set-up is correct it has great playability, great sound both unplugged or plugged and just looks phenomenal . . . I have the black. I can still have the shims removed to lower the action even more . . . but I'll wait till I break it in a bit. Great guitar for the money if you happen to get a good one.

Used 2778 AX NEB

By William Martin

from Bloomfield Hills

Comments about Ovation Standard Elite 2778 AX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I just purchased a used 2778 from a Guitar Center store in Florida. I am in Michigan. I was concerned but the 30 day return to any local store allowed me to take a chance. The guitar was listed as in Great condition with case. First the purchase on line was easy and it took the guitar off line immediately. The shipping tracking system let me follow every step and I received the Guitar on time, free delivery. The packaging could not have been better. I inspected the guitar and it was flawless. The set up was perfect. Not sure how it could have been better. Contacted Ovation gave them the serial number and they told me it was a 2008 model. The sound is AMAZING. This guitar looks, sounds, and plays as New, Ovation is a great guitar and worth every dollar new or used.

The "End your search for an acoustic/electric guitar" Guitar

By George Salazar

from Austin, TX

Comments about Ovation Standard Elite 2778 AX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Amazing feel, sound, and quality! I recently got myself an Ovation a few months back and it is definitely the best acoustic/electric I have ever played! I have been a guitar repairman for a couple of years now so I have had my share of experience with acoustics. I have worked on top dollar Martin's, Gibson's, you name it! I worked on an Ovation Elite and I was stunned! The guitar had some cosmetic wear to it, but I was amazed at the sound and style of this amazing guitar! If you are looking for a very tonal responsive guitar, then end your search! The Ovation catches every bass and mid tone. What's better than hearing this Ovation through it's unique sound holes? Plug her in and find out! Ovation's sound even better plugged in! Also, this guitar holds tuning amazingly well. I literally only tune it every time I change string, and that's monthly! Holds intonation perfectly and has great action, really fast neck! So get yourself an Ovation today! You won't regret it!

This Ovation is worth a second look

By Rob

from Cool, Ca.

Comments about Ovation Standard Elite 2778 AX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

After trying out numerous acoustic / electric guitars, ranging from Martin to Taylor to Breedlove, I finally wandered over to the wall where the ovations were. I played one a long time ago and I had no real beef with them with one exception - they sit oddly when you are sitting down playing. This was not an issue here. The body is slimmer than the old design and it feels great. Feed back issues are nill to none and long story short... I bought one. It is now my back up guitar on stage and I know I can count on it when I need it!

Beautiful and Quality Guitar

By Mike

from Minnesota

Comments about Ovation Standard Elite 2778 AX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is by far one of the best guitars I have ever played. It has a tone that is unmatched in almost every way. Finger-picking to flat picking, this acoustic-electric is very versatile and can mold to the style of any player. The intonation is incredible and playing it through an amp really makes this guitar shine. It is also a beautiful guitar and a true work of art as far as most guitars go. It is comfortable too. Sitting or standing this guitar plays like a dream.

Ovation 2778 AX

By dave

from Milford, CT

Comments about Ovation Standard Elite 2778 AX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Great guitar! Sound projection is awesome. The unique design also appealed to me. The action was very high when received. Removing the shims to adjust the action was easy and resulted in what I would consider a perfect adjustment. I am now considering buying another Ovation. These are really great mid-priced guitars. I also have a Gibson Hummingbird Pro. The Ovation has just as good a sound and feel but with better projection. I like the Lyachord body as it stands up well to normal use without having to worry about accidental dings.
