excellence

23.01.2017
A beautiful guitar to just look at but as soon as you pick it up and sit down its just a joy to play never slips its tuning, even day by day you barely need to tweek your machine heads to flatten that sharp. so easy and effortless to play 1st day with the guitar i was able to learn ''summer'' from the four seasons by vivaldi. beautiful, fast, amazing guitar ovation have really out done themselves here. THANK YOU THOMANN!!

Great bass guitar - very good pickup system

Klaus-Dieter H., 18.11.2017
This Ovation has a Super Shallow body, which means it is very flat and therefore suitable for the stage. Feedback is almost impossible here. But this also means that the purely acoustic sound remains somewhat due to the design. Their field of application is the electrical amplification on the stages of this world. I bought them for that and it works great. The built PU system is well thought out and passes the typical Ovationsound to the PA. Equalizer and tuner are mandatory and work without blame.

The guitar is beautiful to look at. The finish of the ceiling is darker in my than in the photos; I think that's great. The processing leaves nothing to be desired. All tip Topp !!! I especially like the subtle V necking. I set the string position a little lower, which was very easy to make by removing a small plate (two are available) under the bridge pad.

The original case was a bit too expensive for me, so I bought the original soft case (Ovation Case 8317) here as well. This is really good, very fitting, lightweight and additionally provided with compartments and pockets.

For the working guitarist, who does not always want to expose his expensive acoustic guitars to the harsh road conditions, I can highly recommend the guitar. But also the electric guitarists, who occasionally resort to the acoustics on the stage; because the feeling is similar to that of an electric guitar and the handling is completely uncomplicated.

Although Ovation builds some other acoustic guitars. But once you get involved, you quickly realize the many benefits of such a guitar; especially in live situations. In the 70s and 80s Ovations were widely used stage guitars. That worked and still works today.
