I love this guitar. The guitar plays well and feels good. The sound is better than you would think coming from such a shallow body it sounds better with acoustic strings when unplugged but still sounds rich even with electric strings. When plugged in the guitar rocks. I run it through an H&K 15 BLU and it sounds just awesome. I am stationed in Iraq and this guitar is also tough enough that I am not worried about damaging it because the back is not made out of wood. This guitar looks great and really delivers on the sound side. The built in tuner is a real asset as it is a quick way to verify without having to hook up or get out another tuner. Everyone that has seen it has wanted to play it. Everyone who has played it has loved it. In my opinion it is an all around great guitar. I also like the fact that the headstock is a little different it just looks cool.

These guitars are PLASTIC. Wood mated to an unnatural synthetic material, sounds like strings on a samsonite suitcase, very fakey.

Great guitar

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've owned this guitar for over a year and a half now. It sounds fantastic unplugged, producing a great sound. It's tone unplugged isn't anything near as amazing as it sounds plugged in. Maybe because it's a very shallow acoustic? Anyways, it sounds as good as it looks, isn't too heavy, and has a great preamp system built in. I shopped around for a while, and I recommend it to any and all looking for an acoustic with the spirit of an electric.

Honestly one of the better acoustic/electrics I've ever played. Not too twangy, but the bass doesn't drown out everything. Great action. I'm about to pawn off one of my kidneys to get it!!

Can't be rivaled

This guitar is great. I own a Elite T ovation. I guess this would make this its counterpart. My band-mate just bought one for himself and i've got the opportunity to play it. Nice bold sound. Great for a lead part. Only thing is the shallow body. If they only had a different model with a deeper one. Besides that, it's a great buy for the price. You'll love that pre-amp. I play rock, alternative rock, metal, and grunge. It works for all of them and i'm sure it would for a whole lot of other types.

Far from flakey

By -97t4CTma

I bought this guitar about two years ago. As an experienced young musician, you need the look in the guitar - and this has it! The best thing about it is the sound. When I play, it takes me into a realm of it's own.

I bought this as my first acoustic, let alone acoustic-electric, and it has been a great guitar ever since. I recommend this for anyone looking for an acoustic-electric. Easy play, great sound, awesome look.

Love it

By Bobodean

Bought this guitar last year. The action is very low. Easy to play. The sound unplugged, while not booming, is good. Sounds great plugged in though. This is my third Ovation, and this is the one I take to gigs. Ovations are great guitars.

I have been playing as a hobbyist for twenty years, and couldn't be happier with this product. Ovation has been noted as the pioneers of acoustic/electric entertainment. I hadn't come near an Ovation till I came near this one, definitely love at first sight. The value is excellent and the playability and tone are gorgeous. Might not directly compare to some top end Gibsons and Martins, but definitely capable of holding its own. My hat's off to the Kaman corporation on this one.

Great guitar!!

This is probably the best guitar I have played for its value. Granted, you have to like the ovation sound, and as long as you do, this guitar is absolutely wonderful, as is its sound. Very easy to play, very beautiful.

I bought this for my son to play and it is the best sounding guitar I have heard! I play a 60 Les Paul and a 59 Telecaster and I would rather have this guitar anyday.
