I own a 1771LX in Cherry Red... and it sounds great... or SOUNDED I should rather say. I've owned it for a year and a half now, and I'm about to be on my third neck. The first time it started to twist, which a local set up guy said was unfixable. Luckily it was still under warranty. So I send it back, get it freakin' two months later, and all is well. A month later, it's starting to bow. My 9th fret on my 3rd and 4th strings sounds atrocious!!! Not to mention the inlay on the 9th fret looks like it was superglued in... badly. So again I took the guitar into a local setup guy who did his best, but still, nothing. I'm sick of the shoddy work. Anyone else go through this bull****?
that's a cheap ovation for you.
sorry. i just had to say it. i'm somewhat an acoustic purist, hahaha.
