U.S. manufacturing, design usual in ovation, inlay anniversary in 2000, three band preamp.
Channel V profile
Composite body but wooden handle (maple).
First point, I find the handle too thick and discomfort is increased with the V-shaped I had not done too much attention at the time by purchasing it from an acquaintance. Secondly, it is poorly balanced global and joins forces rounded back makes the game particularly difficult sitting, it slips constantly on the knees.
Access to Acute is correct because of the cutaway.
The settings are off the preamp, one good technique.
Through a luthier to adjust to after a takeoff of the handle, nothing to do, the junction of the handle and wood composite body that is difficult rattrappable, of which an action for the strings too high.
The best part is connected, the sound is of satisfactory quality and sufficient crystalline but it lacks serious still, the preamp is quite effective if you do not go to extremes.
The worst: without connecting it sounds way, see the cold weather I think. Necessarily composite body has to play on this record. There is still a feeling of proper volume. We find the lack of bass / lower midrange.
I think my purchase of the day had been impulsive and poorly thought out. I find the reputation of CS overrated. The value for money is unacceptable. I have even seen Stagg sound better than this! So what about my old Martin D15!
In short, a guitar that I keep only because it has no resale value attractive. It serves as a decoration than anything else. It will probably end in a garage sale the day I've had enough of seeing it gathering dust on the wall.
A purchase discouraged, most maivais qube choice I made on an instrument and yet I have and I have a few guitars ...
