A guitar for eyes, ears and hands

Michael S. 833, 28.05.2013
This ovation is just great. I've been playing professionally for over 40 years, even with people like McLaughlin, Larry Carlton and so on. You can try their good parts, but this Ovation C2078 comes with everyone.

Beautiful AAA blanket with a wide sound image and tremendous sustain. Well-worked fingerboard with noble inlays. Also the class multiholes are incorporated and not glued. The neck is well-lined on the back, the head is typical Ovation and the mechanisms work easily and precisely.
The sound is as usual from Ovation, but here very transparent, stronger and more interesting than with the Al DiMeola and the additional Driveregler gives the guitar a good portion of sustain. Otherwise, the equalization is as usual and well controllable, as well as the perfect tuner.

In the back part, many people think that they were drunk in the construction department, but this somewhat visually needy form has enormous advantage in every belly. Well conceived. For the XLR connector, there is an additional side input.

The ovation is delivered in deep-bowl form and with case.
My conclusion is that if one still believes that Koreans are building more inferior guitars, I must disappoint them, because I owned the far more expensive Al DiMeola, but this is better. Besides, these people would have prejudices or no idea of ??playing. The C2078 Custom Elite (I own it in a beautiful teardrop burst) is a guitar for all directions.
Full star rating and clear purchase recommendation.

Ovation!

Reiner B., 30.04.2016
In my ears THE guitar for the stage!

The sound is unreinforced as amplified typical Ovation and the OCP-1K pickup is probably with the OP Pro Studio Preamp with the best, what is on the market. And so you do not need to worry about the PA at the PA, the mids and highs are very beautifully solved - just plug in (jack or XLR) and set the desired volume. Feedback? What is that, actually? Sound control? Superfluous ...

The playability I find excellent. The "Deep Contour Bowl" adds a lot more to the body - in contrast to the correct roundbacks. This means that you can also sit comfortably while sitting without a belt. It may be necessary to begin with some of the very narrow neck. At my Ovation the string position for me was already perfectly adjusted, so I only had to vote (tuner works very well!) And then directly could go.

Should I mention that this guitar is very well processed and also looks very spectacular? Especially in "my" finish "Red Teardrop Burst": the binding and the grip plates reflect every light source and the gilded mechanics radiate with the high-gloss varnish.

Also the included case is good - it is light, sufficiently stable and can be concluded. What more do you want?

Overall, I would judge: not quite cheap fun, but "cheap". And the perpetual grin when hitching just does not disappear anymore ... I'm having fun! As shown in Fig.
