Super showy guitar

Francisco Javier214, 16.04.2013
It came home a week ago and for the moment seems excellent, the sound is magnificent without amplifying as amplified, in the short time that I have it barely tunes taking into account that the strings are "accenting" yet.
It is not as hard as I thought it would be an Ovation and for my hand (rather large and fine-toothed) I do not find the cevillas narrow.
As for appearance it is presiosa from top to bottom and the format after the body fits great to the body when I have it hanging.
In short I am very satisfied with this guitar in terms of sound and comfort when running it, the original case is very good too.

Great guitar

Peter322, 22.07.2016
Very short: Good guitar! Does not sound like plastic;)

Longer:
After I own a Ovation Custom Legend 1769, 1991 (similar to the Al Di Meola version, which unfortunately is not built anymore), I wanted to have exactly this model 2079, which has been available in the USA for several years , But in Germany only now.
Maybe I got the first of this kind in D - therefore here the first evaluation.

I am usually not for a certain company to have - Ovation however, it has already done me. That is why I have another, namely a Celebrity. My comparison will therefore also take place within the Ovation family.

Since I own the old Custom Legend and the Celebrity with Mid Bowl, I already knew that the corpus deepth plays also a big role with this type of guitar. That's why I bought the 2079 with Deep Bowl.

The processing of the legend made in Korea is quite good - the old legend was produced in the USA, the processing is not really much better. However, the then cost about 5000 DM. The Koreans are at the top of the Asian hierarchy of craftsmanship - which is also seen here.
Differences from the old Custom Legend are, for example, the soundhole rosette. In 1769 it consists of abalones in the plastic ring, placed on the ceiling. Looks good first - but with me the plastic over time brittle, burst and rattled when playing - replacement for it, there is unfortunately no longer. That is why I am very glad that the 2079 has a milled rosette ring, which fits perfectly into the surface and can never make such problems as the old one. (I had to myself now for the old one Rosette Milling)
The guitar is delivered with a suitcase, which costs alone about 130 euros.
The OP-amp is compared to the old super! (Although the old ones are not bad.)
The battery is easily changed and accommodated in the housing, in which the whole electronics is plugged. However, I find the solution at the celebrity more practical. There you have the battery in an extra compartment, which one gets even more easily.
Dier Op Pro Studio has a slider (Expressor) that allows a seamless transition from "normal" to "compressed / limited". Very interesting!
In addition, there is a "drive" controller, which I still have to explore. I guess he has an effect on overtones.

The 2070 has a body that has an ergonomic shape when compared to other ovations, with the result that you can really play it while you are sitting, without having to take it all over again because the roundback slips away! Maybe my old 1769 sounds a bit fuller, which perhaps has to do with the round body. (After about 6 weeks I have to say that is the case. The old 1769 sounds a bit better!)

I deliberately chose a transparent varnish so as not to get any defects in the wood and was not disappointed.

In the delivery condition, there were three slides under the bridge, which I reduced to 1 plate after changing the strings. So she plays almost like an electric and still sounds very good. The neck was perfectly adjusted.


Conclusion: Sounds good, plays well and costs in comparison to the old USA variant about a quarter (inflation and euro-compensated) with comparable quality and almost equally good sound.
Compared to the Celebrity by two classes better! Compared to the old Custom Legend a (half?) Class worse. This judgment refers exclusively to the acoustic sound.
Electrical "wins" the 2079!

I am happy to have bought this guitar!
Second review of this review:
I tried to operate the Op-Amp with phantom power. (A VERY important feature in a professional guitar, as I think.) From the German Ovation distribution GEWA I learned that the surgery is not suitable for phantom power!)


(Maybe helpful to evaluate my rating: I have been playing guitar, acoustic and electric for 40 years, all directions: folkloric, top40, rock, pop etc, live and studio Various jazz guitars, for electric guitars I always land at Strat and Tele.- ie, I love narrow necks.).
