Price or service? Both!

Come on, unpacked and ...
beautiful.
The guitar looks fantastic. The paintwork is a bit darker than on the photos.

To the sound:
The strings are, in my opinion, a number too thick. But that is easy to fix. The box needs to settle down, of course, but then it sounds really great.
For a roundback also unreinforced very noisy.
Amplifies clear and pleasantly adjustable sound.

Playability:
Very pleasant throat.
Guitar is generally very pleasant to play.
Things such as strings or also impact behavior are simply always habituation.

Features:
The only major drawback is the tuner.
It reacts but there are absolutely no miracles to be expected. The built-in controls are, in my opinion, superfluous. Would recommend to run the guitar in live mode with a compressor or an effectboard.

Processing:
One two adhesive residues. At the price but you can not complain at all.
The only misunderstanding on my part.
Ovation is not much better, but only visually more expensive and expensive.

Conclusion:
Price performance ratio is top!
A roundback to these conditions and in addition this sound and the beautiful optics above ...
I would buy them again.
Would it be nice if maybe a gigbag is added;)

what comfort! what a pleasure !

Frédéric9712, 16.10.2017
already there is packaging!
a box then another then the soft protection and finally the "beast".
First she is light, then she is beautiful, very beautiful! I settle down and there comfort (even my little belly has the place) the agreements go by themselves. the acoustic sound is very soft. And we plug on a Roland AC60 (we do not forget to turn off the tuner) and the sound of the sweet and accurate an equalizer (which is useful for something) each setting is heard.
And here you put your entourage behind: "It's too strong, you come to eat!
Beware, if you are like me there is danger of habituation.
I'm not a great guitarist but it's been 40 years since I dreamed of an Ovation
Well, now I'm thrilled.
My daughter is already starting to look at her with envious eyes, "No, I'm keeping her!"
It does not have enough acoustic sound this guitar must be connected, the handle is nice a little round (it could be finer) I have a great acoustic luthier, they complement each other.
