"Sounds great Eddie, glad you're working and settled enough to be able to relax with your new Ovation! If you do try the Bluegrass strings, let me know how you liked them! Also, please post some pics of your new guitar!
"Hi, JB. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family. I wanted to give you and the others guys that gave me advice on my original question about strings , an update. This Guitar (Celebrity Ovation CC-24 spruce top)…"
"I use Martin Bluegrass strings on both my Gibson acoustics and I think they are the best! A light gauge set on my two Gibsons buzz on the D and G strings when I do any aggressive rhythm work (I am by no means a guitar basher, but I do like fast…"
"Hi, no it is just a shot of me to the side, my other two bandmates are with me! Never heard of acoustic solo on bass...that would be a good one! In my trio we trade off on instruments for many of the songs, but my main job is 6 and 12 string…"

"Yes, Eddie, we're both Eddie and we're both 55. I am very proud of my son and daughter, both in their 30's. I just moved to Staten Island and I'm actually staying with my daughter until I find a job and a studio apt. I am single…"
"Hey Eddie, We may be form the same decade, I was born in '55 and am now 55! My step son is 17, my son is 24 and my daughter is 29.

I really appreciate the wonderful advice ! I'll tell you whats happened since I posted last. I found the Ovation CC24S at ebay for $100 less. Because it is a factory refurb. The seller says it doesn't know what the reason was it…"
I have been playing Ovations for a long time, deep bowls, mid bowls, shallow backs, and even a nylon Country Gentleman.
