Excellent guitar, superb service
ralphhardwick, 22.12.2018
After a great deal of research, I finally decided to take a risk and order my guitar from an online supplier without trying it first as there are no Ovation dealers anywhere near my home. Thomann's 30 return period helped sway my opinion.
I was torn between two different models, but the team at Thomann answered my question promptly which help me make my choice.
By the time ordered it, it was shown as out of stock and it would be around 5 days before they were expected back in. However, I was very pleased to receive an email after on 3 days to say that it had been dispatched.
It arrived 3 days later as promised and was well packed.
I am a novice guitar player, but I can state that the sound and tone from this guitar is beautifully crisp and vibrant. I am used to the sound of a Tanglewood (all wood) acoustic and found the sound of the Ovation to be brighter, but just as full and warm.
I had concerns that the Korean (AX) models were lower quality than the American made (LX) models. If this is the case then it is certainly not obvious as this is a very well made and finished guitar.
I found the strings to be a little bit too heavy for me so I replaced them with 0.11 Elixirs and I lowered the action slightly by removing two shims from under the saddle.
It now plays beautifully and I am very happy and expect this guitar to last me many years.
