Comments about Applause Elite Mid-Depth Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

My old 1978 Ovation now hangs on the wall, still a beauty but it has run its course. This one has big shoes to fill. I bought it for known quality, durability and consistency, and of course I love the look and feel of an Ovation.

    Comments about Applause Elite Mid-Depth Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought a "blemished" product with the black finish to take on camping trips, but for the life of me I can't find the blemish. It came with light strings, and I prefer medium, but it is easy to play and the action is even and fret finish is very good. With the light strings you get some buzz when you hit a chord hard, so I may switch strings or adjust the action. The built in tuner is a nice addition. I haven't tried the pickup yet. This is a great, easy to play guitar for knocking around. I was considering a Martin XM, but this guitar is better - and half the price.

    Nice looking. Sounds great unamplified. Huge disappointment when plugged into an amp. Feedback was uncontrollable. Electronic tuner switch was faulty, too.
