Ovation Classical is superb

Baz G., 10.11.2014
I already had an Ovation steel-string guitar and 4 string bass both of which are 5 stars in my book. I like the Ovation OP-Pro electronics and pickup on all 3 instruments. This 1773-AX-4 is fabulous. As a steel string player most of the time, the neck on this guitar is not as wide as a standard classical guitar, so, it's easy to switch between instruments. And it sounds excellent plugged in, and acoustically, too. I took it to an unplugged jam night recently - there were 4 nylon string guitars there, and all the players wanted to play my Ovation. I wasn't particularly impressed with the strings it came with (I never am) - I like Savarez nylon strings, which lifted the sound from excellent to sublime. It's a joy to play and I love the sound.

A sound idea

Gilles088, 08.12.2011
I owned several Ovation guitars between the late 70's and the early 80's: a Balladeer, a Country Artist and a Legend. All three were US models. I always regretted having sold these guitars and especially the Country Artist. When I decided to buy an acoustic nylon strings, I naturally went to Ovation and there I found that apart from the Adamas and two or three models (Signature and limited series), all The guitars were now made in Korea. As a result, prices have dropped significantly!

What about quality, then? Well, I must say that it is always there: the sound is exactly the one I was looking for and that I kept in memory. Perfectly defined, incredibly homogeneous on the different registers, precise and soft at the same time with this characteristic roundness of the high-medium and the basses. This is not surprising since the materials used are identical in all respects to those of the 1173LX, and therefore of the American model. A Solid Cedar AAA table, whether adhered to the USA or Korea, will always be excellent; A touch of ebony on a neck, whether it is mounted in the USA or in Korea, will always give this wonderful touch and this sound is both round and perfectly defined. This Classic 1773AX is therefore absolutely level of the deceased American model but it costs exactly half the price!

The manufacture suffers from some small cosmetic defects: small mark on the easel, casting of varnish on part of the head, slight defect of varnish on an outside edge of the table. But the woods are magnificent: the veining of the cedar massif enjoys a regularity and density that reassures on its quality and ebony of the touch is beautiful. Finally, I find this disconcerting facility of play proper to all Ovations: whatever the model, the sleeve is a dream and ensures extreme comfort. This Classic is as easy to play as my recent Balladeer S771LX or my already old Celebrity Cu249, although the neck is obviously wider. The OP-Pro preamp is perfect and even more neutral than the OP-30 and OP-40 which equip respectively the CU249 and S771LX mentioned above.

Note that I had to change the strings immediately because the Sol, Si and Mi really did not sound; Probably the guitar was in stock for a long time. Or the Daddario strings are not the best choice. And once an Augustine Imperial gold set, what sounds! A beautiful guitar at a really affordable price.
A Custom Legend will soon be present to the three little sisters who are exhibiting in the living room.
