#beginquote# Toonz, Most music stores welcome trying instruments. They have chairs,chords and amps just for that reason. I would never buy something I didn't play first. When I was looking at Ibanez guitars, I went to about 5 or 6 different stores before I found the model I wanted to buy so I could play it first. Then after I was satisfied, I shopped for the best price. From time to time, I just stop in if I'm in the neighborhood, just to jam a bit on some different instruments. Pete mentioned about a thin neck. Of all the guitars I've played, Ovation has the thinnest. This is one of the features I like about Ovation, as well as the sound. Even the twelve string guitars have a thinner neck than most others. If I don't build a twelve string from the plans I have, I will probably get an Ovation. It's also nice to listen to other people play various instruments at music stores, especially the younger kids who are starting to get pretty good. Once I saw a fourteen year old ripping up some Zep on a three thousand dollar Jimmy Paige Les Paul. Happy hunting, Don I am a fragment of my imagination #endquote#
