Good looking, but dissapointing in overall

03.03.2017
For this price the build quality is pretty awful.

Truss-rod for some reason couldn't be adjusted (I tried different tools with no luck), neck is really hard to play no matter which string gauge you use. This is strange, because ovations are famous for their fast necks.

There was a barely visible crack(!) on the inside of headstock, which was factory repaired later in factory conditions before sending it to me. So I received completely new guitar with visible signs of this crack.

It was held in room temperature in original case with semi-high humidity, but guitar's front finish cracked twice in about a year. Isn't the best feeling when buying a new guitar. I have other acoustic guitars held in same conditions,15 years and still no cracks.

Playing/recording through pre-amp doesn't bring any "wows", common for my ear unpleasant piezo signal.

This guitar was primarily used in studio, recording it straight into a condenser mic or in a pair or together with a ribbon brought quite decent results. However, guitar could lack mids. It was used on a stage also, but nothing special.

Pros

-Nice looking (chick magnet :D )

-compact, comfortable to hold

-when recording with a condenser (or other type mic) results aren't bad at all

Cons

-poor build quality

-neck is very hard to play, fingers become killed right away

-neck isn't adjustable, truss rod not functioning

-overpriced Korean guitar

c'est une ovation mais...

Jean-Marc158, 03.06.2014
Je voulais le son ovation (on aime ou on déteste...moi j'adore) je me suis donc orienté vers cette guitare qui avait un rapport qualité-prix intéressant. Y a pas à dire : c'est une ovation. J'étais donc plus que satisfait de la finition, du confort de jeu et du son. Tout était parfait jusqu'à ce que je tente un solo et ne distingue aucune variation de tonalité entre la 14ème et 15ème case sur la corde de mi aigu. En cause une frette trop sortie (la 15ème je crois). J'ai hésité à retourner l'instrument mais j'en avais besoin cette semaine. J'ai donc limé la frette incriminée mais, n'étant pas Luthier, je n'ai pas réussi à avoir le son attendu (la corde frotte sur la frette en faisant un bruit désagréable). Donc un peu déçu quand même par cette ovation dont la marque avait bâti sa réputation sur une finition irréprochable...
