After trying a bunch of Ovation knock-offs I decided to stick with the Ovation because of its superior tone. I can't stress the tone enough, but one aspect of the guitar I don't like is something that isn't even related to the guitar itself, the case. The case makes the guitar seem so much heavier.

I am used to electric guitars so the higher action of an acoustic makes it more difficult for me to play it. But I don't mind it too much because I notice that my hands are now stronger and I play faster on my electrics now too.
The tone is very balanced. It seems to have a Spanish/Classical flavour to it. I fell in love with this guitar after running through a Harmonic Minor jam.
Within three days of purchasing this guitar I had to get the truss rod adjusted. The weather we were having was horrible so it caused a back bow in the neck.
