Ovation 6778 LX has many unique and friendly amenities. How many guitars can you pull from their case, push a button and tune in a matter of seconds? Unplugged this rig has rich savory tone...but plugged in, you'll find a whole new world of acoustic/electric magic. I've always been a Martin fan (over 25 years) and a number of years ago became a Taylor fan as well, but now Ovation has become a family member...again. I remember years ago my first Applause tore my finger tips up...Ovation USA has come a long way baby, this guitar ROCKS! You'll find the action and fingerboard is far superior to Ovations made outside of the USA. Every inch of the Standard Elite reflects quality craftsmanship and pride...Support American economy, buy American made, you won't be disappointed and the deal with an unbeatable price!
I have a lot of nice, high-end guitars but this Ovation 6778LX really surprised me. It's got a great feel to it that's very hard to resist. It's also very visually appealing and exhibits a lot of thoughtful craftsmanship. I actually tend to play the Ovation a lot because I'm less worried about damaging the delicate woodstuff or scratching up the finish. The thing is half plastic but you'd never guess from the sound of it. Plus the neck is fast and comfy. I think the shallow bowl back is another thing that makes the guitar so inviting. It's definitely a guitar that begs to be played. Whether you're into fast strumming or delicate fingerpicking, pick one up and I guarantee you'll have a hard time putting it down.
I have played a lot of top brand acoustic or E-Acoustic guitars, including Martin and Taylor. No doubt, this is one of the best. The unplugged sound is no tradtional, it is something that sounds like has been process by a professional sound engineer, in another word, it is someting like you have ever heard in a Music CD. SO when play live the unplugged sound is very clean and no need to be processed. Then plugged sound is also over the top. I recommend this guitar to everyone who plays live than other.
I got my ovation a few months ago when it was on sale and it sounds awsome. Unplugged it has a nice comresed bluesy sound but plugged in is where this guitar really shines with a boss EQ and the onboard electronics you can get amazing sounds. Don't hesitate its a great time to buy!!!
My friend had this guitar and I played it at school. Like the title says: Words can not describe this guitar. The action is perfect just for playing or slide guitar, get a nice blues sound when using a slide. Didn't get a chance to plug it in but the sound alone is amazing. All the finishes are beautiful but I prefer black. I do have plans on buying this.
Just got it in.I love it.It came with a nice case. I was wondering if the case would be a cheapie or not and it was a nice hard shell case. It plays great so far and has great tone.I also have the ovation double neck guitar 12 string/6 string.
I am not an expert on the finish, but these are beautiful guitars with a sound from heaven. Unplugged, these sound almost perfect, when they are plugged in, that is when this guitar hits that perfect note. It fits right in my hand and in my arms like they were made for them. Don't miss out on this, it's almost too good...
It's too bad that so many have this pre-conceived notion about these round back guitars. I would rather play at home or on stage with THIS guitar than any of my Taylors, Gibson's or Martins. The sound is sweeter than honey, the build is the best in the business and the pre-amp is world class. I bought mine some time ago for alot more money. Don't miss out on this guitar and in black, it looks almost as good as it plays and it's the only guitar that didn't have to go to the Luthier for a new set-up... Play on!
I don't understand why this isn't on the top of everyones list. On it's own, its a crisp mellow sound and plugged in, it's the best I've ever played and that includes Taylors, Martins or anone elses. The fact is, it's too darn good so they will probably change it or discontinue it. Great guitar, the first one that was set up perfectly from the factory, WOW!!
I purchased this guitar about two years ago, while looking for an acoustic electric in this price range. Tone is a must when it comes to playing live onstage, and the Ovation LX is one of the BEST sounding acoustic electrics there is. Unplugged, it is still rich, but quieter. You can't fully appreciate this guitar unless you hear it plugged in. Amazing buy
