I bought this to replace my aging Simon and Patrick dreadnought acoustic, I previously owen a crafter model and found this guitar to be superior overall.

I am very happy with the feel of this guitar, the action is nice, intonation all fine, neck is smooth and easy to move around. Out of the box it was well setup, and I could start playing immediately.

Strings: Alot of people talk of using elixirs on this to extend the bright tone, I find a set of Daddario EXL110 just fine.

Pickup : Apart from the signature bright tone to an ovation, you can eq this with the onboard 3 band , to favour a warmer tone quite easily. The battery is easily changed, and situated down near the output signal jack.

This guitar has a pre amp installed and piezo pickup under the saddle so you can do directly into a desk, nice option for playing live with minimal fuss.

For recording : Using a condenser mic, 10 cm from the fretboard, and pointing in at 45 degrees from the twelfth fret towards the distinctively designed holes gives a beautiful and clear tone also. Mixing this with the direct signal and you are all set! Superb!

I'd definitely recommend this guitar, as it is quite versatile for both strumming work and for intricate finger picking.

The only down side I find with ovation guitars is the tendancy to slip off your knee or wobble when playing standing up. This is because of the round back - so this can take a bit of getting used to. The binding from the body to the round back it holding just fine also after 6 months of use playing about 10 hours a week. There is some marks on the body from strumming, only noticeable close up, you could always install a pick guard...
