I have been learning Southern Nights by Glenn Campbell, it sounds great on the 12 string. That Jerry Reed turn around is pretty slick once you get the hang of it. Any of the oldies that I play just sound great on it.
Count us in too, the G5422-12 is a deal, they sound and play wonderful. We are still in awe over the price, play-ability and sound.
@mrfixitmi and @Scamp .... just received word ... An Ovation , Melissa Ethridge Signature I was hoping to buy has become available as the other buyer backed out . It's a 2 hr drive for me but may be well worth it . Girl bought it as a gift for someone and that person turned it down , could you image turning a gift like that down . She bought it like 2 months ago for $1600 and is selling at $1100 . Hopefully she'll take a $100 off for my gas ....fingers crossed
Wow, best of luck, I really hope it works out for you!!! And pics...
Good luck, Rich!
Joe Walsh had a white Gretsch acoustic 12 string he played when he and his wife were sitting on the couch singing Happy Birthday to Ringo.
Nice finish and guitar. Congrats and enjoy(!) It kind of looks like an aged Country Gent Walnut finish, if that makes any sense.
Best of luck, we have a double neck (6-string/12 string) Ovation Celebrity that if not for the weight and size, it would be another "Go To" 12-string. We bought it used for my son when he was playing in Pit crew Phantom of the Opera. We had to reset the bridge on the 12-string side in order to use both necks, but playing with the quick key changes did not allow for capo repositioning in time so both necks were used. That Ovation 12 seemed to cut through the full Orchestration and can be heard. Gretsch has that Gretsch sound, the same can be said for that Ovation 12 string, nothing sounds close. Hopefully this will work out for you.
Thanks , it's looking better and better for my road trip on the 31st
Congrats, very nice. Love the sound of a 12-string. Playing it...not so much.
Trick or treat?
oh you bet
My apologies @guitarguy68 , I don't mean to steal the thread but this is what I'm chasing after ......... ( @Scamp @mrfixitmi , I'm just bustin' here )
Certainly worth the chase and the road trip.
I am sure that you are already planning on using a humidipak. The tops on both of our Ovations are perfect. No cracks, no splits, no sinking. I attribute it to the Humidipaks, the polymer bowl doesn't shrink or stretch, but the top still wants to move. When the sales rep approached us about 16 years ago with the Humidipak system, he bet me that if I used the system as instructed, if the top had any cracks, crevices, or bows in 10 years, he would pay me $1,000. Knowing that this can be an issue with Ovations, I was planning on collecting.
I probably spent $350 over the ten years, for replacement packs, but never had any issues with my Ovations. With the temperature and humidity fluctuations in Michigan, I thought that I would be collecting my $1,000. Never did, just ended up with Ovation tops that still look great.
You have great taste in 12 string guitars!
I showed this pic to my wife and she said "oh, that's nice. You should get one." uhhhhh... Thanks honey! Best wife, ever.
Congrats on the new guitar.
That's so pretty it made me cry. I've got a couple of 12 string guitars. It would be hard to justify buying another one right now. But man, you're killing me with those pictures.
