Für kleines Geld eine 12-saitige, die von Ovation "gelabelt" ist? Geht nicht. Muss Schrott sein.

Berichte über die AB2412-4 sind kaum zu finden, Dank Thomann ist aber ein eigener Test risikolos möglich, es ist mehr als ein Test geblieben!

Versand: Nachmittags bestellt, 2 Tage später angekommen

Verpackung: Paket im Paket im Paket, sehr stabil, trotzdem leicht zu öffnen

Geruch: (nur der Form halber: mancher könnte ja Interesse an einer solchen Information haben) keiner, nicht mal Plastikgeruch ;)

Verarbeitung: sehr sauber, keine Klebereste sichtbar, im Korpus einige Späne oder Flocken; ausgeblasen und weg ;) Matte, irgendwie anders aussehende Stellen im Plastekorpus liessen sich mit einem Küchentuch entfernen.

Vorbereitung: dünne G-Saite war gerissen, kann ja mal passieren, ersetzt, iO....etwas liegengelassen, nach einer Stunde gestimmt, die Gitarre wurde um einen Ton abgestimmt geliefert, Stimmung Dank Stimmgerät pippileicht....

Erster Eindruck: Bundrein, stimmstabil, alle Mechaniken leicht auf- und abstimmbar!!!! Heller, glänzender *<;-) Klang, so von oben gehört.....

Optimierung: Stegeinlagen alle herausgenommen, 3 sind drin, eine dünner als die andere, gut, daß selbst die Slimline-TA dieses Feature aufweisen
Hals eingestellt, ich vermute, daß hier durch fehlende Vorarbeiten Kosten "optimiert" wurden, kein Problem, nun liegen weniger als 3 mm an der tiefen E-Saite am 14ten Bund.....

Ergonomie: Die AB hat einen Midsize-Korpus, selbst mit Bauch habe ich keine Probleme beim Spielen im Sitzen, die Gitarre ist sehr gut ausbalanziert, der unbeschichtete Hals fühlt sich wunderbar an, die Gitarre wirkt klein, obwohl sie deutlich größer als eine klassische Gitarre ist. An dieser Stelle muss ich gestehen; ich wollte eine 12-Saitige haben, die nicht so plump und gewaltig wie eine Jumbo oder Dreadnought daherkommt, daher kam mir die (ja, ich werde es jetzt so deutlich sagen, weil die Balladier sich so darstellt) OVATION in den Sinn.

Material: (laminierte) hochglänzende Fichtendecke, Plastekorpus, Natohals, unlackiert (und absolut toll gemasert und matt und anschmiegsam und flach und breit genug und toll.......(wer braucht Mahagoni???), leichtgängige kleine Mechaniken mit Ovation-Prägung, Plastikrosette, excellent verarbeiteter Steg mit eingeschliffener Bundreinheit ;), Ovation-Kopfplatte; der kleine Hammerhai lässt grüßen (wenn die nicht in den Koffer passt, säge ich den ab....war nur Spass!!!)

Klang: die 12-saitige klingt brilliant und füllig, sicher nicht ganz so laut in Ohrenrichtung wie eine Gitarre mit Holzkorpus, aber in jeden Fall ausreichend. Ein Hammer ist der feine kleine Tonabnehmer mit der eingebauten Elektronik: Eine akustische Gitarre, die an der PA wie eine akustische Gitarre klingt, das können nicht viele, da kann man manch anderen Piezo-TA in der Pfeife rauchen ;)

Optimierung: Da könnte noch Luft nach oben sein, werde einen Gitarrenbauer mal zur Sattelhöhe konsultieren, da scheinen noch 0,3mm zuviel drauf zu sein, wenn das ohne Gefahr für die Bundreinheit und bessere Bespielbarkeit zu korrigieren ist, lass´ ich´s machen....

Im Innern befindet sich ein Aufkleber mit dem einfachen Ovation-Label, der Modellbezeichnung und der Seriennummer, darunter die .....

Herkunft: Made in Indonesia (nicht USA/Korea/China)!!!

Fazit: Behalte ich, die Fingerkuppen tun im Eifer eh´ nicht mehr weh, die Qualität ist über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Nach meinen Optimierungen kann ich zum Kauf raten, eine wunderschöne, gut klingende (optisch) kleine 12-saitige Gitarre, die sich m.E.n. zu Recht Ovation nennen darf

5 Punkte, weil normale Optimierungen keine Reparatur sind und im Interesse des Nutzers liegen können, also ehrlich verdient.....

Bonjour,
Globalement une bonne guitare en particulier eu égard au rapport qualité prix.
J'ai une autre Applause mais 6 cordes qui a bourlingué depuis 22ans mais je ne pense pas que cette 12 cordes fasse le job a l'identique vu les petites mal façons détectées de ci de là.
C'est un peu dommage car dans le fond l'instrument est hyper sympa.
