Just another case for several varieties of the proverbial ice cream. Personally, I always liked the newer (darker) rosette on darker guitars. The older and lighter on natural face gits. Why? I couldn't explain it if I tried.

The newer (darker) ones sounds better.

I think they cut down more of the spurious reflections (ever wonder why room acoustic treatments are always dark in color?). I also think the color of the rosette changes over time and that's one of the contributors to why the guitars tone changes. When folks claim that their well played guitar has "opened up" I think the aging color of the rosette has something to do with this. Just like the gradual change over time of the tortie pickguards on non-ovation guitars.

room acoustic treatments are always dark in color


Mine is named Millend Studios. A friend is a furniture designer, and over time she has given me numerous thick upholstery fabric mill ends that I use as acoustic treatments. Flat or folded or rolled or hung into whatever configuration fits the current need, those babies shape ambient sound wonderfully. Some are indeed dark, but aside from that it sure is flowery in there!
Point is.. based on results of using those flowery upholstery prints, I think it's the flower-type design on the rosette that really makes the difference in the way different generations of Ovation guitars sound. Just test one of the flowery rosettes up against the original Ovation grape cluster design and you'll see what I mean.

I think I've just entered what is referred to as 'the dark corners of the internet.'

I actually kind of like the darker rosette.
