#beginquote# suzyq, Under The Boardwalk was the Stones, with a magic 12 string bridge, but we're still friends, right?:) ""I also remember from an earlier post that you had said the the highs in an Ovation are biased, but you never explained what you meant. "" Don, it's the use of fibreglass, I find it lacks body tones, and always sounds to me like a non-solid top accoustic ie: cheap, thin and limited in harmonic overtones. I have never owned a Martin, (I have a Gibson, and Fender, Burns and Guild electrics, but my 19 year old Suzuki Professional accoustic beats everything else I have played or heard, inc the Aussie Maton, hands down) but I have had a lot of students with them over the years. I find if the string size is dropped back to an .011 1st, they are faster and lower, but a lot of flatpickers buy them just because of that squared-off neck. Dijeredoo is played by the kids I teach, and when that ancient sound, unchanged for at least 10,000 years, is produced by a classroom of Aboriginal kids who's forebares were living in the stone age only 200 years ago (and who are very bright, and very musically talanted)the effect is hair-raising. The kids, we teachers say, ""zone out"", when the Digeredoo is played in the classroom, and even us white folk feel ourselves drifting off. And, for those who are reading this who, unlike Don and myself, have not heard one played, these things are LOUD... Baruch 3:14 #endquote#
