This is the answer to the search for the ultimate stage mandolin. It's NOT a pre-war, Loar, F-style clone; if that's your Holy Grail your barking up the wrong tree! If you DO want a set-up that gives you the hands-down best solution to amplified mandolinning, this feedback-free, dream-come-true will blow you away. Purists will accuse it of sounding "guitar-like," only because it's got uncharacteristic warmth, and an onboard (OP-24+) EQ that lets YOU decide what it should sound like. Don't confuse this with the cheap import Applause or Celebrity you've seen frequently on E-bay. This model is made in CT, USA, by experienced American Ovation craftsman. Its output is in the neighborhood of 12dB hotter than other designs, giving you additional headroom before feedback. Serious players rave about the string-to-string balance of the Ovation pickup in general, and how they can change string gauges, and even mix gauges, without the output level problems of other systems. She comes with a fresh pair of strings, new 9V battery, polished frets, oiled fretboard, and her Hardshell Case!
