More Than I Expected
I had an ovation many years ago with the deep bowl, it was a great guitar but, I had a bit of a problem with the bowl. It was not an acoustic electric and, did not have a cutaway on the body. I was a little weary if I would really like this instrument but, the deal that I found was too good to pass up. The mid bowl on this guitar makes it easier to hold and play than the first Ovation that I had, the cutaway on the body is perfect, and the elctronics that are built into this instrument are awesome!
This guitar exceeded my expectations in every way. Unplugged it sound great, plugged into my Fishman Performer amp it sounds Awesome to say the least! This guitar could have the best electronics of any acoustic electric that I own. The action right out of the box was perfect and, for a 12 string, playability is sweet. I did encounter one very minor problem, the 4th fret was a little high but, with a little 400 grit paper and some careful attention in 30min. this was solved perfectly. I always setup all my own guitars and do any work that I see needs to be done. I always enjoy doing this it just adds that personal touch that I always add to all my guitars. I would highly reommend this guitar to anybody looking for an electric 12 string at a decent price.
Also I will add that the finish and color are very eye catching.
