Overall Rating
Playability and Feel
superb acoustic - love it
Your general opinion of this product.
Purchased for my daughter and she likes it over a much more expensive ovation celebrity deluxe.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Super nice, a quality build and sounds great.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Plays great and a good setup out of the box. Fender got this one right.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Tone is superb, great sound, doesn't even need to be plugged in. Loud and proud.
How was the action out of the box?
Just a tad bit high. Still very playable.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Perfection on the finish. Looking hard I could not find a single blemish.
How has it stood up over time?
It is new, Time will tell, but I am betting it will be around a long time.
