I am about to purchase a new Ovation 1867 Legend with the op 40 preamp. Can anyone out there give me any input on their experience with this model guitar and preamp. I will be using it for live perfomances and run it straight through the board. also is 840. a good enough price for this guitar?
Any feedback would be appreciated

Billie, I have the same model, except with the OP-24 C preamp, shallow body. I play it live through an acoustic amp then into the board. I'm realtively new at playing live and all, but it is a great sounding guitar! I got mine for a little better price, you might shop around some. What finish and body size are you looking at? Mine is blue sparkle finish - sounds kinda glitzy but it is a nice subdues blue/charcoal look.

Hey Paul,... thanx for the quick response. Who did you get yours through?
By the way, since your from cowtown you might wanna come check us out sometime www.TastyLixx.com is our bands website, we do mostly covers but have some really good musicians. The color I am looking at is natural I have had black and gold guitars for my last 2. Just sold a js 1000 Joe Satriani model (white) to buy this Ovation.

Hey Billy,

Just came from your website and I listened to your MP3's and you guys (and gal) sound fantastic!! You've got a super voice with great phrasing and timing!! How/Where did you record your MP3's? I particularly liked your cover of Sunburn!!
. . . . . .


Mike :cool:

You may want to check out mine before you pay double for a new one. Sorry for the shameless plug! But this is one great guitar and I'd love for it to find a good home. Absolute new condition. Dave

I got mine at Earhart's Electronics on Beach St. Last time I was in there all they had were Celebrity models. When I got mine last year (he let me put it in layaway!) he had a Celebrity Collector's Edition (can't remember what year it was) and he had the Legend. The Legend at $495.00 was actually a little cheaper than the Celebrity ?!?!?
I'm not sure if they can order something for you, just have to wait and might not get such a good price. It's a small shop, they've done some repair work for me and my bandmates: Kid On A Pony and two weeks ago I picked up a Genz-Benz Acoustic Shenandoah 85 amp to go along with the Legend. They carry Hamer guitars, too. I will come check y'all out!

Billy, if I'm not mistaken the list is $1520 on that.... so simple math 840/1520 looks like that's about 45% off list. If this is a new item from a real dealer then 45% off list is always good! I reserve the right to have faulty math. Obviously, you can save mucho dinero off a new one by buying used, if you're happy with that.

Hey Trboy,
hanx for the kind words, it is much appreciated.
We recorded all those tracks earlier this year in our drummers house in one take with splitting headache hangovers. Currently we are working on some originals and putting out another group of MP3'S for a new demo. We also have a kick ass guitar player now. Thanx again for checking out the site and the kind words

Thanx dave, but I got my heart set on that op40 preamp. good luck selling your guitar tho.
Paul,... I have used Earhart before and forgot they sell used gear, they fixed my Crate tubo-valve 120 amp and did an awesome job on it
