does anyone know about this guitar? its the ovation balladeer 1771 LX.

it seems to be retailing at about $900 american and about $1150 canadian. it's pricy but if i can get it 1 year used in perfect condition how does $500 canadian sound? including the case.

It's a wonderful guitar with the new bracing. They sound terrific, comparable to wood.

I just played that guitar yesterday at Daddy's Junky Music (along with about 50 other guitars!). It's a nice guitar and the action was FANTASTIC. The sound plugged in can't be beat (in my opinion)...

However we can't judge a guitar that is 1 year old...it depends on the wear & tear, how it was taken care of, any blems, etc. An actual picture of the guitar would help or at least a better description.

Also for future reference...this probably should have been in the same thread you posted before...I know I do that all the time but it keeps the board from getting cluttered...MAN...I sound like an admin! :wink: )

That is a beauty! Is that the honey burst? I think if you can pick that up for under half price I'd go for it.

The list of upgrades in the LX models are conciderable. A new truss rod system with dual carbon rods & scalloped braces. Also the Lyracord (not plastic!!!) bowl has been changed . They have added glass micro-spheres to the material to make it 30% lighter and more acousticly active.
And.....it sounds like a good deal.

Ovation....
Belly up to the bowl boys!!!!
