I just joined as a new member. I have always been a fan of Ovation guitars but never had a deep bowled guitar. I purchased a new Burgandy LX-1777 Legend in the 2004 timeframe and it is my most played guitar.
I just purchased finally a deep bowl guitar in a recent purchase of an Ovation Commemorative 30th Anniversary Custom Legend 1719-30CM. Advertized as never been played I could not find a pick scratch on it, so I am really the condition. Original strings, that he had turned down some to reduce tension.
I like to do alot of finger-picking, and so far that is all that I have been doing but very excited to finally have a deep bowl. I also like that it has the familiar LX neck that I am already used to.
I am not the most accomplished player so my guitars have light usage to-date, but since I purchased a travel guitar and had to hit the road in my job, I have played almost daily for nearly a year and my guitar playing is finally advancing significantly for once in my life.
