    OVERALL OPINION

    The characteristics of this model are all identical to the old Custom Legend LX meeting point in the USA, that's how we deal then an exceptional guitar, but for a price divided by 2.
    I am surprised to find here and there amazing view: so and so complains that he just bought Elite does not sound like a 30 year old Legend. But what could be more normal?

An Elite physically different from a Legend and it is futile to compare guitars that do not offer the same features: mid depht bowl against deep bowl, multi sound holes against central rosette, not to mention a massive table improves with time.
    Anyway, once again, that the materials are assembled in Korea and the U.S. do not change: a solid spruce top AAA, an ebony fingerboard luxury, etc ... ensure consistent quality of workmanship.
    And yes, definitely yes, the Custom Legend is extraordinary. It sounds wonderful and it is pure acoustic or plugged. What meets the ear when you play, it is this unique equilibrium, this definition gives incredible precision and tonal consistency that is found both in the game arpeggio in picking or agreements. At ease in all styles and all techniques, Ovation Custom Legend offers a projection that does not leave anything to any massive guitars. But in addition, it ensures that balance, which means that each string stands perfectly and no frequency outweighs another. Compared to other guitars and Elite multi sound holes of the brand, the Custom Legend is more homogeneous across all major registries / medium / high (which does not prevent me from worshiping guitars Elite range which are also exceptional) and the sound scale is superior in terms of overall volume. Sustain surprised, in a good way, and the guitar sounds with lots of body. Harmonics come easily, rich and clear. Mechanical, accurate and quality, allow a stable agreement.
    Do not spoil this model is simply aesthetically sublime: the woods, beautiful, and different binding around the body and the handle gives it an unparalleled class. The comfort awaits you on all levels: the handle, a pure dream, is simply the best that I've played, access to acute perfect, incredibly low action, all this makes a game Specifically, without fatigue. This guitar really gives an environment to play and play again.
    Once connected, no surprise! The pre-amp turns neutral but versatile thanks to its efficient and responsive EQ and compression system board is an interesting asset on some amplifiers that do not shine by their transparency and consistency across all frequencies, for example, all combos for electric guitars, very interesting if you do not electro-acoustic amp on hand. We find the same characteristics in pure sound: definition, precision attacks, sustain (let alone with the compressor) and tonal balance. The famous sound Ovation, to summarize.
    A guitar all outstanding points that gives a rare treat to play.
