Simply the best (just about)

30.12.2016
I bought my Ovation 2078AX-5 guitar and case just over three years ago. The service I received from order to receipt was second to none.

Very pleased with the guitar although I had to have it set up when received as it had not been set up by Thomann prior to despatch.

The headstock logo started to come off after about a year and I contacted them for a replacement and they said that I had to return the guitar to them for repair. That was not helpful just for a stick on logo so a little disappointed in them over this. I managed to get one through Ovation so all is now ok.

I am just about to use Thomann again for another Ovation guitar and case so they are not all that bad.

The prices they charge are better than UK prices and some of the delivery is free and you have to pay mostly from UK suppliers. This is excellent for Thomann. You will be receiving my order in the net two weeks.

Distinctive sound

Erich aus T., 05.02.2015
The sound of this guitar has always fascinated me and that is still today, you can hear it, clearly and clearly, even if other guitars are playing.
At first, I had to get used to the more narrow strings and the neck shape, but now she is playing super. She feels more embarrassed than she is. This is something you always take first. Besides, she already makes something with her special look.
The workmanship is perfect without blame. The "plastic bowl" with the inspection cap has shocked me at first, but it is very robust and insensitive. She has already put in a lot without seeing any traces of use.
The string position was too high for me when I was delivered, the bridge was reduced, the saddle was polished.
It is now very easy and pleasant to play.
Also, my Marshall AS50D sounds very good. To the limit to the feedback I have not yet come, but it is significantly higher than with my other guitars with round hole.
Conclusion: I do not give more.
