made in korea black two strokes on the body and the battery removed
I put 5 euros for the housing of the battery and everything works perfectly. It is a good ovation handle a little too round for my taste and 43mm at nut is the minimum for me who big fingers, but it passes.

UTILIZATION

access to acute perfect round too round and 43 mm at nut The sound is the sound OVATION we like or not like me

SOUNDS

but happiness for the picking or accompagnemenyt comes into its own guitar plugged

OVERALL OPINION

I also have a walk around the 1980 OVATION c is brilliant I like playing comfort and reduced thickness of the box

It is a beautifully crafted guitar.
I really like the look.
The mechanical quality

UTILIZATION

The handle is very comfortable.
You can practice any style.
The height of the strings to the handle is quite small, which allows a certain velocity.
The handling is very easy.
Cash back, however, is confusing for those who do not know.
The player's position is unique, whether standing or sitting, because in addition it is very slight.

SOUNDS

The sound is distinctive, Ovation is typical, so very original, you love it or hate it.
The sound is round and warm in the sharp attack (that slap), it does not lend itself to all styles, but can make beautiful associations in a group.
It seems suited to the blues, for example.
I use a Marshall Acoustic Solist, which is well suited.
A dry strength is very flat (trop!), given the size of the fund.
But it can play quietly in his corner.

OVERALL OPINION

I have for 10 years, and before you buy a takamine I wanted, but I had a big favorite in the light ...
It's really the super quality and can not be disappointed.
However, I also know of other sounds ...
I do not regret, but maybe one day I'll try something else pout see.

-Korea
-22/23
Rosewood bridge-average quality
OP-24 + Preamp: Volume, 3 band EQ, a button to activate the EQ, one who digs the media or something like that, one that boosts the midrange

In conclusion, a Korean stringed honorable one (far below, however, Ovation U.S.)
Go j'rajoute one point more for its aesthetic worth devastating to the owner of compliments from the fairer sex as soon as he comes out of its case (the guitar ...)
Well actually I get out even when the preamp loose in the box that generates noise when it is positioned in a way
Then I'll still want to remove a battery compartment that requires pliers to remove it (authentique!!)
It's really seeing how we understand the interest to buy American guitars even if they are more expensive exaggerate
)

UTILIZATION

A good little run-V, very fine, really stunning for the price, the real strength of this guitar, a "highway" as that term is devoted
-Thanks to its deep cutaway and the body that tapers at the junction body / neck access is incredible for a high-pitched electro, all boxes are actually available
-The ergonomics may be one of the most successful of its kind
-The guitar is perfectly just, is the agreement

SOUNDS

It addresses the chapter angry.
Because of its design (depth of body reduced to mine, there are other sizes but that does not change much, no rosette) in pure sound, the sound is straight as a pin, it's awesome! It is rare to hear a sound devoid of any warmth, resonance annexes, harmonics etc ...
In fact it's an absolutely unique, not that of a strictly acoustic parler.Extrèmement dynamic, this guitar takes an interest in musical contexts particularly rhythmic
The accuracy is excellent
In electro guitar comes into its own as the preamp gives a range of sounds, extremely interesting, but none of them really "acoustic"

OVERALL OPINION

In conclusion, I would say this guitar is an "unidentified object guitar," halfway between an electric (for ease of playing, the sounds electros for some) and an acoustic
This guitar influence your game very clearly and this is its advantage and its main drawback
To take a very special guitar, which I think is doomed to shred sound (note also that this guitar performs well in gypsy ironically) and that we understand why the mark is used by guitarists like Al Di Meola, Mc Laughlin etc ... But who precisely is sorely lacking warmth, personality
It is a kind of iceberg that would advance on the water at 200 km / h in some way
