Sound — 8
I use Ovation Elite 1778 n Les Paul passive humbuckers. Great for metal n clean channel can handle it all. It doesn't handle mids well on the dirty channel. Distortion/ gain seems intense.
Overall Impression — 8
Looks cool, sounds good n no complaints from guys I Jam with. Loud as hell n distorts nicely, watch mids!

I'm not sure what yr this was made but the kid I bought it off of believed it was 2010. I play mostly hard rock n metal but have played my Ovation through the clean channel n it sounds nice. 2 channels, clean n dirty. Like them both. I typically play dirty with mids notched out n highest gain, no reverb. I think the reverb blows. Sound tight, ESP for less than 100$. I cannot find the Raven footswitch but I use it with my RP500 n sounds nice! Also has effects loop, line out n tuner (sucks). Would love headphone jack. I use it both to practice n gig. Really loud! For price, it kicks a-s! No effects but that's a good thing for me.
