Exceeded expectations.

17.12.2016
Absolutely delighted with this guitar. It looks even more stunning in real life than in the photographs. It seems very well made and finished.
The plugged in sound is superb and the gain control and 3 band equaliser make it easy to adjust the tone to individual preference. The built in tuner is a bonus.
The super shallow bowl does compromise the depth of the unplugged tone although it is still reasonable. A purist acoustic player should maybe look elsewhere but for a giggable acoustic sound it is perfect.
The action was on the high side but was easily lowered by removing one of the two under saddle shims (which is easy to do). I replaced the supplied strings with extra light gauge acoustic and it now rivals an electric guitar for playability.
Overall this is a superb guitar for the money.

This is now times' ne horny guitar! OK, this euphoric and emotional statement may not help everyone, but is so!
I always wanted a "real" ovation, and this current series holds what it promises - for relatively small money -.
The processing is outstanding (despite or because of the production in China), the materials leave nothing to be desired. The look is naturally taste, I personally like it absolutely, for me much more beautiful than TGE or KOA. The cloudy-horn in "blu burst" looks already giant!
What surprised me, was the - despite Super Shallow body - unreinforced but relatively loud and quite balanced sound, mE nix with "sharp" and "rattling". Compared to my previous Dreadnoughts certainly a little less voluminous and bassy, ??but that was clear.
Body and neck shape are guarantors for an extremely comfortable handling. Frets are neatly dressed, the strings need no adjustment.
I have not regretted the purchase yet!

Perhaps one word to the Thomann team: I had somehow decided to buy the guitar (at that time was 445 ¤), but wanted to order only the next day. Since the Ovation suddenly cost 495 ¤! Thankfully, however, Thomann came to me on demand and offered me to get the guitar for the previous price! Class! Thanks again! Thomann not only offers top-notch products but also the much-lauded Superservice!
