    Very good quality

    I bought this guitar from sweetwater several years ago when it included a hard case when it was blown out on a sale price as it was replaced by the same exact guitar but now sold without a case. Its a very stable instrument takes set ups well.
    The neck is stable and the bridge can be adjusted by both height and angle by the tapered shims included. Sounds loud and very clear.
    If you want the sound of the fiberglass Rainsong or Composite guitars but dont want to spend 2 thousand dollars then this is a good substitute.

    A TERRIFIC guitar---both acoustically & amped-up! Has a nice, balanced richness & resonance, & is very comfortable to play! This is my first acoustic guitar with the electric option, & I really like the control panel with the equalizer, etc.on this guitar. I want to thank Mike Soper---my Sales Rep.---for doing his usual GREAT job in providing me with the VERY BEST service, advice, quickness in shipping, & much more! I also want to thank Colin W. in the service dept. for taking the extra time & effort in making sure everything was OK!

    Great guitar

    Superb guitar that suits strumming or picking styles. Good acoustic and electric sound, good projection. Action rather high, although the shims are removed. Therefore preferable to use lighter strings or tune the instrument lower flat. Clean finish, nice neck. Need velcro to prevent the body from sliding, common Ovation guitars default. I recommend it without reserve ...

    Nice guitar for strummer/pickers

    I finally realize I prefer this type of guitar, with a narrow round neck rather than the wide flatter necks of the fingerstyle guitars.
    Other than high action beginning around the 10th fret and upwards, this guitar is pristine, really nice tight binding and a great feel and sound. Stays in tune forever, very stable. The tension on the strings is tremendous, so perhaps tuning down a half step would make it a little easier to bend strings. Overall a very nice value here and the case is more than sufficient. Very easy to adjust the truss rod for setups.

    Very nice for the price

    I got mine when it came with a hard case. Its a nice guitar you can add or subtract the shims under the bridge to adjust the action height. The back is contoured so it doesnt slip out of your lap like the old style Ovations. Neck is quality has quality feel very substantial. Nice frets.
