    OVERALL OPINION

    I have owned several Ovation guitars in the late '70s and the first half of the 80s: A Balladeer, a Country Artist and Legend. All three were U.S. models.
    I've always regretted having sold the guitars and especially the Country Artist. When I decided to buy a nylon string acoustic, it is natural that I went to Ovation and there I found that apart from Adamas and two or three models (Signature and limited edition), all guitars were made in Korea now. As a result, prices have dropped significantly!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have owned several Ovation guitars in the late '70s and the first half of the 80s: A Balladeer, a Country Artist and Legend. All three were U.S. models.
    I've always regretted having sold the guitars and especially the Country Artist. When I decided to buy a nylon string acoustic, it is natural that I went to Ovation and there I found that apart from Adamas and two or three models (Signature and limited edition), all guitars were made in Korea now. As a result, prices have dropped significantly!
    What about the quality, then? Well, I must say it is still there: the sound is exactly what I was looking for and I kept in memory. Perfectly defined, incredibly consistent on different registers, precise and gentle with both the roundness characteristic of midrange and bass.
    At this surprising since the materials used are all identical to those of the 1173LX points, so the U.S. model. A Solid Cedar AAA, it is stuck in the USA and Korea, will always excellent, an ebony fingerboard on a handle, is mounted in the U.S. or Korea, always give a wonderful feel and sound to this both round and well defined. This 1773AX Classic is absolutely level late American model but it costs exactly half the price!
    The woods are beautiful: the grain of solid cedar has a regularity and density reassures quality and ebony key is beautiful. Finally, I found this disconcerting ease of play for all Ovation: whatever the model, the handle is a dream and provides extreme comfort. This Classic is very easy to play. The OP-Pro preamp is perfect.
    Note that I had to immediately change the strings because the G, B and E are not really ringing, probably the guitar it was in stock for a long time. Or Daddario strings are not the best choice. And once a game Augustine Imperial gold mounted, what sounds!
    A beautiful guitar at a very affordable price.
