Ovation: 1777LX Legend
The Legend is traditional only in its appearance. The Lyrachord composite body allows us to do away with the sound-absorbent body bracing that inhibits even the highest quality flatback guitars.

Features: Quick, balanced response. Clean sustained projection. The Legend is traditional only in its appearance. The Lyrachord composite body allows us to do away with the sound-absorbent body bracing that inhibits even the highest quality flatback guitars. Plug it in and you'll find that its acoustic "beefiness" is accentuated by its highly sensitive OP-24+C preamp. More sound. Less work. Set after set. Night after night. // 10

Sound: Wonderful full sound. The Ovation sounds good on its own and good when its plugged in. The thing I like most about it's sound is that unlike a lot of electro-acoustics like a Takamine, it never sounds at all 'tinny'. // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: I have been unable to find any flaws and the body is still in perfect condition despite is being 20 years old! // 10

Overall Impression: In my opinion this is the ultimate elctro-acoustic in the world. Don't even look at others because as soon as you hear this you will find every other disappointing! // 10
