Ovation Custom Balladeer 1612
Made in the United States
Prea-amp with volume control


Perfect grip
Sound as warm and powerful sound plugged in


Guitar very versatile


It's a guitar for 22 years I
I had two and a Takamine Guild
And I do not regret at all, especially the Takamine!
No way, no good!
The price is based on the life span and quality of the guitar.
In the price range of Ovation, I find that it is hard to beat!

Ovation Custom Balladeer 1612
It has been said for gear
between the ivory ebony the Sitka spruce etc.
for me it is a riot of nobility flattering because I have never had this level of guitar, guitars still has 500 EUR


Channel not great, quite sharp (in a triangle to give you an idea but exaggerates eh j)
Access to the treble is good but is not ac c that it is made so ...
good but the body weight slips on either and I've put the cork sticker to improve the stability of the beast
easily get a good sound is not a problem, the prob 'c is to keep it!
the sound is so good that when you do you curl quickly becomes ridiculous because the box is huge (deep bowl) and imperfections are seen fairly quickly, and as the handle must be used to sy, it is discouraged. but when you manage to play fast and clean c is not easy to get to work by leaving the plum '
j've learned a lot with this guitar because it is precise with notes sets, so you sing 'Cause it just does more aid.
to one side it does not forgive mistakes, but the other she will "say" when not gonna level your
I hope to me that I understand
a sound that I love very much can be almost too pure a lack of grain or a cavernous termignoni on ducati's raspy scraping, and c is a bit too "clean"

This does not mean that it did not have personality


It is well suited to what I want and I play without amp


Approximately one month that I am in the happy owner and what pleases me most is of course c as I said earlier his pedagogy, I said yes
until I learned it was a way to put my own fingers on the handle quickly and without thinking, on a yamaha which i also give my opinion
j learn with it has pluck the string so as to obtain a true sound that is different depending on where you do
if the same does not sound like two different agreements and ac c is new to me
I seek the words and I am able to understand what it s thanks to the quality of its product

incredible value for money because I'm hitting a guitarist who has underestimated its price and after having received ten phone call has still agreed to let go of me the price of ad

what I like least c is its look with the black box I'm not a big fan of lyrachod and the varnish is very thin so the slightest impact bin there is an impact
the yamaha they have put a layer that makes it virtually indestructible
c is good but because Kaman wanted in its search for freedom fund to minimize the weight of the table

I would do this choice, but at the price or I have touched
put 800 or 1,000 euros in a vintage no I would not do
