I got this guitar for an excellent price. And was not in the market for a guitar at the time. I would buy this guitar again, at the price I paid for it. I like it's playability, and mobility. The tone is good, but it lacks volume.
Model Year: 1996
Price: $150.00
Where Obtained: Friend
Features:
The AE38 Manufactured by the world famous Ovation company. Round back acoustic electric guitar It took 30-odd years of Ovation guitarmaking innovation to design an affordable guitar that doesn't sound like an affordable guitar. The Summit Series: These guitars boast a bigger sound than guitars costing twice as much. For the most part that's due to the Lyrachord body - the same U.S.A. made body found on upscale Ovations. Its roundback shape capitalizes on the structural power of the arch freeing the insides of sound-deadening bracing that traditional-style guitars require.
Playability:
Had it setup and the action is excellent. As with all my guitars, I need the cutaway style body for my playing styles. And this guitar fits the bill. It is a good guitar for the price. Compares well with it's daddy Ovation line of guitars. Only flaw, would be the volume of the guitar, due to it's thinner body
Sound Quality:
I use it through a Prime acoustic amp. Play blues, and rock on the guitar. It has a warm sound to it. Right now it is only used for home practicing.
Durability:
Very reliable guitar, and I think it would hold up well on stage. All my guitars are climate controlled. So I am not sure how it would hold up to extreme climates. I don't believe any guitar can take extreme climate changes.
