User review and recommendation
of the Ovation
Description: The Ovation CC057 while not made in the USA but rather
by their Pacific subsidiary overseas is still an Ovation nonetheless.
Like it's USA made brothers the Ovation CC057 shares the same Lyrachord
body which give it the unique Ovation sound and light weight while maintaining
The Ovation CC057 features a spruce top, super shallow body for easy
of play, center soundhole, rosewood finger board, thin line pickup and
OP20 electronics. The new OP20 preamp features a 3 band EQ and pre shape
circuit for greater tunability. The onboard tuner is easy to use and
very handy for quickly tuning the guitar whether during a live performance
or just playing at home.
Because of the unique body design there is minimal bracing which in
turn produces maximum sound.
