My Brand New Ovation :)
OliverSean, 23.12.2014
I can't stop playing my new D Scale Ovation!!! Why didn't I buy this sooner? :) an unbelievable guitar and it's my Christmas present to myself. It's been 17 years since I bought a new ovation, my favourite guitar is still my celebrity deluxe but I have now retired that guitar as I want it to be with me forever and write all my songs on it ;) now the d scale is going to take over all live stage responsibilities and I must say its opened up new ideas with the new scale and low end, I'm getting ideas popping in constantly. The sound is great, the A spruce top has great projection, excellent low end obviously being a lower scale, however even with the capo on the second fret the guitar still has awesome low end. The guitar really does come alive when you plug it in - obviously - this is an ovation and it has to be PLUGGED IN :). And the fretboard is so cool, almost like an electric. I love it! Oh and I own 2 Taylor's, ibanez archtop (which I do love), PRS single cut, epiphone masterbilt (best all wood guitar and gives all high end guitars a run for their money), fender American start and various other guitars but on stage I know for a fact that the ovation dscale is now going to be my go to guitar (just like my old celebrity deluxe - her name is Cindy) ;)

Raw and profound
23.04.2016
This particular guitar really surprised me with crystal but somehow low metallic sound and clear tone. Body is solid and primer, fingerboard impresses with quality feel and mildness. Great balance between 90's art rock influence, prog metal ballad kick and modern pop and alternAtive even grundge support; tight compression, powerful direct signal through the piezo that provides commercial and easy to chew up finished sound into the mix. Allover impression is about a high quality creature that is unusual, very giving back and well seated in the first few rows of the middle class guitars - still trendy and not too narrow or specialized like most expensive models. Extraordinary view and contemporary look.
