Re: What's the best Acoustic Youve Played?
I used to have a Taylor 710 that was the best I ever played, loved that guitar but times change ya' know. However, the best I ever heard was Phil Keaggy's Olson small jumbo. I saw him play like a a cafe style gig and was able to really hear the tone. Amazing, amazing stuff from those guitars. But expensive and rare for sure.
And as far as Ovations, in my opinion, just opinion here: I think they only sound like string, no wood. They are loud and it's not an ugly sound but to me just like a big string sound not much color to the tone, even the expensive ones. They are good for live apps for their abilities acoustic-electrically and without a tone of feedback and so on, but as far as tone. For me they just don't have a lot.
