Dream Guitar

Kimon Jersey, 01.06.2015
Perfect for punk/folk/rock sound. Has the feel and sound that really pushes a band from the front. Maybe not for purist acoustic types , but this is a special sound. On board tuner spot on. Easy battery change. Smooth machine heads. Love it.

Love

A. aus T., 24.08.2015
I have the Ovation 1778TX-5 Elite T BK now about three weeks and now I could but with her friend :)

Playability:
In the delivery condition it was not really good for me. Since I actually play electric guitar and on my Paula always a set of 10 sets, I was with the 12s of this Ovation once not so happy.
Bendings did not go at all and from the fifth covenant the string position was so high that a solo was almost impossible.
The purpose of this guitar in the basic setting is thus clearly in strumming. Okay, this is just with Western guitars and I will not complain about this ...

But it would not be a proper ovation, if you could adjust anything. A glimpse into the enclosed handbook caused hope to germinate, because there it was described that under the bridge so-called shimmings (compensating plates), by their removal the string position in the upper layers can be relativiert.This is great, because I have at others (Cheap -) Always tap the bar down.
The saddle is perfectly worked. Especially in the saddle and the height of the strings to the first two cymbals I have seen in the area of ??low budget guitars really creepy. Apparently in the (cheap) production would rather be safe and the motto is: "main thing it can not snarl". In a saddle where the strings are less than a centimeter from the fretboard, of course, a string will never snarl, but the guitar player will never be able to play with this planer and have fun.
After I have removed all three shimmings and afterwards a set of 11er Elixir (whom I had ordered directly by order), the world already looked quite different.
The strings I now play are the Elixir 16027 (Acoustic Phosphor Bronze Nanoweb Coating Custom Light). They fit quite well to the ovation, sound brilliant and through the lowered position comes now almost electric guitars feel.
The guitar plays itself butterweich, is absolutely voiceless and bundrein - but in the price class, I have not expected otherwise.

Sound:
I thought it was quieter because of the roundback design. Of course, it does not have the sound volume of a guitar with a dreadnought body, but it does not come quietly through the brilliance in the treble and clear mids. Nevertheless they can be very well tempered to play in the evening not all with its performances to be happy;)
Attached to the amp it loses nothing of its brilliance and is actually the perfect stage guitar in the acoustic area.

Processing:
The processing is not great, but good. Since I own a Gibson Les Paul, I have a benchmark. At the Paula everything is right.
The cuffs are smooth and polished, so that when bending nothing rubbles or you feel, it could be smoother. The edges of the cuffs are so straight or flush with the neck. The problem is always with guitars, which were produced in high humidity and then come into our fields, since the fingerboard then minimally pulls together and thus the ends of the cotters are not one hundred percent flush - but here so minimal that it Already complaining at a high level, if one complains.
Apart from that everything is valuable and passable. The unpainted neck fits very well to it is a lot of fun to play on it. Moreover, the guitar is very well balanced.
The Midsizebowl body is super sitting while sitting, but standing up a bit too bulging. After a Pizza Calzone with Insalata Cappriciosa and Pizzabötchen with herbs butter the Ovation hangs at the thirty degree angle on the belt: D ... in stage shows are therefore one to two days diet in advance very helpful and let the 1778TX-5 stylish hang down.
Due to the 'texture lacquering' she staples herself at the game position while sitting on the jeans and does not slip around - very pleasantly.

Equipment:
And now comes the hammer: The 1778TX-5 was delivered in a heavy, fat, black original Ovation case!
The thing tops every nuclear war and is really great. I do not know whether I was lucky now - at any rate, the black beauty lay in an original Ovation case lined with black velvet.
In the case there was the obligatory Allen key for the truss rod of the neck setting as well as the handbook.

I am happy with the Ovation 1778TX-5 Elite and she looks damn cool !!!
