Ovation 2778AX Deep Contour Cutaway
I purchased my first Ovation as a High School Graduation present to myself back in 1974. I own it to this very day, and it has bounced along from one end of the country to the other and back again. For my 60th birthday after decades of electric guitar collecting, I got the bug for another acoustic and once again, Ovation got the call! This guitar is beautiful and the sound is glorious ... deep and rich with high end sparkle. Very balanced and loud acoustically, the BIG surprise was how wonderful it sounds through an amp. Not an "acoustic" amp, mind you but a solid state Fender Mustang V ... just glorious! The contour shape makes it very easy to hold and play despite the depth of the bowl. Highly recommended. needless to say, the folks at Sweetwater always make me feel highly valued as a customer and they are a pleasure to do business with! Great experience all-around!
