Overall Rating:
This is a good everyday guitar. I keep it in the family room and pick it up frequently. I don't play in public, but I've seen a lot of band members use the same instrument.
Model Year: 1999
Price: $750.00
Where Obtained: bought it from a friend
Features:
Made in USA. It has an ebony fretboard, African Bubinga wood body, gold plated tuning knobs.
Playability:
If I can't obtain my preferred action, it's not the guitar's fault. The action is very good. The pick-up/equalizer is annoying because it always needs a fresh 9-volt battery
Sound Quality:
I use the wrong kind of amps. Usually a Line 6 electric guitar amp. The unplugged sound is rich and full, considering it doesn't have a sound hole. It is noisy when amplified if the battery isn't fresh.
Durability:
It's a tough guitar. The composite back stand up to anything. I never adjusted the truss rod in 5 years. The hardware is fine.

More frets. strings that break less. the volume control is quite experimental it seems. if it could be more precise (volume control) would be much better. one of the best ways i ever spent my money! i even like the smell of it.
Model Year: 1997
Price: $963.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Sam Ash Florida
Features:
Made in the US. 20 frets. volume controled by slight touch. no swithch. no pickup. smaller size especially for women (so i have been told).
Playability:
Can't really do any solo action on this guitar thought it has a beautiful darker rich sound that is perfect for simple strumming. magical sound. strings break out of control (i break 3-4 every performance, within 3 hours). tried to polish the bridge but it didn't solve the problem. maybe i play too hard. i think it is a combination. neck is thin so it is very comfortable.
Sound Quality:
It is the best guitar i have seen/tried and whenever i check other guitars, mine always wins. i chose her for her sound. you don't have to be a great player to make her sound right. i love this guitar. it was a great buy. the price included a hard super fancy guitar case with green velvet padding. price includes tax too.
Durability:
It is a delicate guitar with delicate wood. so you have to be careful. it is not the finishing point, but it is a fantastic guitar to grow with. very cosy. again, the sound is fenominal. no competition yet.

I am a wood man and love the look feel and sound of wood, but Ovation does a great job with Accoustic Electrics.
Model Year: 1995
Price: $1400.00
Features:
The 1995 Collectors'Series guitar, the fourteenth in the series, is one of 1500 produced in 1995. It is a beautful looks match the feel and sound especially amped. I have had a little trouble with theXLR connector- but I intend to bring it up to New Hartford and have it looked at.
Playability:
I love the thin neck, and I believe an ebony fretboard.
Sound Quality:
My sopn has a Marshall MD100 THis combination is rich and full.
Durability:
I have had this guitar for a little over a year. I think I want to have the intonation adjusted slightly on the high "e" ( I have an 8 month old son who likes to drum on deck while I play.... ) THis guitar stands up pretty well.
