FENDER ACOUSTIC , Acoustic/Electric 12 String Ovation Guitar, Fender Stratacoustic

hey guys does anyone have any input on these guitars? if so could you let me know thanks!

I don't really like the sound of ovations, but some people love them. I've yet to find a nice Fender acoustic, and if the stratocoustic is the one I think it is, it's a cool idea, but soundwise it's not a very nice acoustic.

What the hell.

I know I'm really tired, but did this thread just get deleted, and renamed with different guitar names in it?

EDIT: haha, yeah, I am that tired...it was in the other forum. Same user though. Never mind me...I'm going to sleep now.

Fender acoustics are not known for their sound, value, or construction. They are known for being "toys" rather than instruments. Ovation guitars are something you either love or hate; they are very unique.

oh by the way its a 12 string acoustic model # is AE 35 , Ovation, Applauss just wondering about that

If you're going to get an Ovation, get the ones made in the US. The Balladier series (1861, etc.) would be the lowest-priced American-made ones.
#12
but how much would a 12 string acoustic model # is AE 35 , Ovation, Applauss go for?
#13
You can look up websites like Guitar Center or Musician's Friend for actual prices. In general, the Applause guitars would be at most about 1/3 or so of the US-made ones.

And as an old saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Ibanez AEG20E Flamed Sycamore Top Acoustic-Electric Guitar My Cousin has it. Beatiful sound and it looks awesome to me.

Sigh . . . I'm so sick of explaining just what's wrong with Ibanez acoustics. There are many threads on the subject, so just search for it.
Sincerely, Chad.

LOL-- let me help you out, Chad -- I have an Ibanez Sage Dreadnought that I noodle with while I'm sitting on the couch, and , let's just say I don't have to turn up the TV. If I look in the soundhole, there's glue everywhere. If I run my finger along the bottom of the bridge, there's glue everywhere. If I look along the base of the heel, there's glue everywhere. Where the nut meets the fretboard, there's glue everywhere. Along the fretboard, where it meets the soundboard, there's glue everywhere.

I bought it to be a "beater" and, really, I don't mind at all taking it camping on a rainy weekend-- if that's what your looking for, go with Ibanez.

Thank you. Those guitars, having sold and repaired them, will forever leave a horrible taste in my mouth. I'd rather have bamboo slivers hammered under my nails than work with one of those guitars again. I'll actually refuse them if anyone brings them to me for custom work or repair.

They're . . . they're just a goddamn mess.
Sincerely, Chad.

Avoid fenders. they're not THAT bad... but they're just not good either. so really, why bother?

take special care to avoid ibanez acoustics like the black plague. milagroso gave a pretty good reason. crappy workmanship is a nono.

i've also heard some pretty disgusting stories about non-american made ovations around this forum. avoid those too. something like having to replace the neck about 3 times. yea... that's not good.
