Re: Ibanez AEF100E vs Euphoria

I find it hard to believe anyone would take the sound of a maple topped Korean acoustic over a spruce topped Martin. Playability is one thing, but sound is another. Maple is stiffer and resonates less, and is used to lessen the possibility of feedback. For $1000 I'd buy a used Custom Legend and an acoustic amp (I just got a CL for 450 myself). There's also a lot of difference between a Celebrity and the rest of the Ovation line.

Re: Ibanez AEF100E vs Euphoria

Jim777 - I've never heard of the Custom Legend so I looked them up on **** and saw a couple of them. (all close to $2k). I thought the Elite was the top model Ovation, but I guess not. Wow, those are really nice. Really pretty guitars with the built in tuner and all the other features I'm looking for. That round back really annoys me though. Maybe I'll put some velcro on my thigh to hold it up!

The asterisks in my above post are covering the name of a popular online auction site.
I didn't realize it was a bad word around here! I'd better wash my mouth out with soap!

Re: Ibanez AEF100E vs Euphoria

I can point you to an Ovation Dealer (the admin of ovationfanclub.com) who has a few 2005 Collector's left, and they're under a grand new. They have the new contoured bowl which is supposed to make it almost impossible to slip off your leg. I've never played one, though. All the specs and pics are on the Ovation site. I also think I saw a new red CL on one of the chain store sites for about 1150 yesterday. You can PM me if you're interested in either and I'll point you in the right direction.

Re: Ibanez AEF100E vs Euphoria

I played one and couldn't believe Ibanez has the balls to charge so much for it.
I didn't plug it in, but I thought it sounded about as good as any other $200 acoustic.
My wife has a 15 series Martin that I got her for Christmas one year, it was relatively inexpensive and plays and sounds way better than the euphoria (it even smells better, but I guess that's unfinished Mahagony).

Re: Ibanez AEF100E vs Euphoria

I just bought an EP7, got it on my birthday... And, I love it! I've already played it through a PA system and it blew away my Takamine TF250SMC with a Cool Tube preamp. I also think it happens to sound very good unplugged as well. No. It is not a $2000 Martin or Taylor. But, it has other features that make it the perfect A/E for me. The thin neck for starters, not to mention it is the coolest looking A/E out there!

Re: Ibanez AEF100E vs Euphoria

Oh, and I just happened to also be choosing between the EP7 and the AEF100EACV as well. I asked Dave Weiner about his AEF100E in his forum here and he answered a couple questions about it. I just decided that the EP7 was better suited to my needs.
