Very nice!

Comments about Ovation Standard Balladeer 1771 AX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I picked this up at a great price as it was used. It plays very nice, had to remove the shim under the saddles because the action was way too high. After that a very slight truss rod adjustment and it plays great. Although it does sound a little thin unplugged you get the distinct "ovation" sound. Plugged in I was shocked how great it sounded. With the EQ all in the middle it was very full and round, sounds fantastic! Tuner works great, looks very nice. The only downsides are it's kinda strange playing with a strap. The rounded back sets the guitar at a slight angle, nothing you can't easily get used to though. I've played some nice Takamine's and Breedlove's at a similar price point and they seemed to have a little lower action but didn't sound as good plugged in as the ovation. It's a great buy, try playing one first to decide if you can live with the rounded back though.

Nice little Ovation!

Comments about Ovation Standard Balladeer 1771 AX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Sounds very good plugged in, but very thin, if just used as a "stand-alone" acoustic due to the "shallow bowl" design. It's a very nice color . Action was a little high out of the box for me, but is fine when lowered, It has no buzzing frets, & stays in-tune very well.
