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.
