Edward Sparks replied to Paul Walters's discussion Fender is closing the New Hartford Ovation facility in the group Round Back Guitars
"Wow, this is a shock, but then I guess not!  I remember in the late 60's and 70's when the Ovation was all you saw in the hands of players on MTV and concerts...they were the best in amplified sound for acoustic then.  Now days…"

NGD - Alvarez ABT-60

I've been toying with the idea of getting a baritone acoustic guitar ever since I first listened to Pat Metheny's "One Quiet Night."  I picked up a used OLP electric baritone from CL last week, and the bug really bit me.I ordered the Alvarez ABT-60 last week, and it arrived this morning!  Beautiful, deep tones; almost like a piano.  I am used to such sounds from my many years of playing the Chapman Stick, but this is the first time I've experienced such a rush from an acoustic guitar!I will…See More

Antonio
