Ovation puts every year a kind of COLLECTORS guitar in limited edition.
They started, if I am not wrong, about 30 years.
I had an Ovation,
COLLECTOR'S SERIES Collector's Series
Collector serie made in 1997. The headstock looked strong like a Spanish Guitar giving the opportunity (I THINK) to put nylon strings too.
There was a problem with this guitar, and she has been 5 times back to the store to fix the problem. She played pretty good, but an ovation for me is a guitar YOU NEED TO PLUG IN AN ACOUSTIC AMP, when you play a, ovation without an amp, the sound is definitely weak.
About Martin: I have an electro-acoustic dreadnought, the sound is "fantastic", AND if you don't use an amp, you still have an "unplugged" sound, a lot better than an ovation.
My personal choice is a MARTIN D1 , (AFFORDABLE), but I just read that this model is discontinued. I also believe that this Martin D-1, is probably the only Martin, using "laminated" sides. TOP: Solid Sitka Spruce BACK MATERIAL: Solid Genuine Mahogany
SIDE MATERIAL: Laminated Mahogany. Overall rating: Product Rating: 5.0=best rating, 5 stars.
My Martin D-1 has electronics on board, and with or without an amp, this beauty plays real loud.
I tried to compare prices: at www.musiccenterinc.com 889$ (probably without the pre-amp, to play electro-acoustic. I just found an acoustic guitar, the name of the brand is MATON.
Are there chordians who are familiar with this MATON? It is not a very cheap guitar, and they produce different guitars.
