Unfortunately, little guitar for small money

Sven Masanke, 09.03.2012
I've always loved the Ovation design. Roundback guitars are just great and that
Soundhole decorations speak for themselves. I looked for a cheap alternative for the living room and hit the HBO850 BK immediately.

The sound is great. Meaningfully emphasized, she made a great impression. Even the built-in customer worked flawlessly and sounded good. This is unfortunately the only thing I can rate as positive.

The foliage adornments partly dissolved after 2 hours of playing time and the coating on the back is very poor. The grip is so rough that bendings beyond the 5th covenant are absolutely impossible. The lateral position is also very high, but this is quickly remedied with a few handfuls of practiced hands.

By far the worst thing about this guitar were, however, the many dead-spots. Overall it was 4 and already a dead-spot is one too much.

It's clear. A guitar for $ 100 is not perfect and certainly not an advanced guitarist. But dead-spots should be prevented in every price class. These also spoil beginners with the fun of every guitar.

Worthy of praise is the uncomplicated exchange of Thomann's, by which with not even shipping costs arise. A few days later I held another HBO850 BK in the hands, which was better processed. The decorations were better glued and the coating much better than with their predecessors.

The side position was similar to that of the predecessor and she had "only" 2 dead-spots. Unfortunately Bendings was still a thing of impossibility, but the decisive reason for a new return, next to the dead-spots, was a loud rattle from the interior, which was due to the detachment of the pickup.

Maybe it was two Monday products. However, I did not want to risk a third disappointment and decided for another cheap alternative from Thomann.

The steel-strung acoustic guitar has a range of sounds that are unmistakeable and not easily replicated with any other type of guitar.
