Ovation Pacemaker 1615-X Walnut
Author: patchmcg (Show all albums)

I planned this one for over a year, and as usual, the factory knocked it out of the park and into the river! The top is flamed walnut with Custom Legend trim and lighter walnut binding. I haven't had a chance to look inside, but John Budny said it's "some type of A-bracing". I've definitely got to get a mirror in that bowl because it sounds Oh So Good!

Strummed or finger-picked, it has an enthralling shimmer acoustically that beggars the adjective "smooth". It's not as loud as spruce, but the tone is definitely unique in a very, VERY good way. What's most amazing about it though is the playability. It's as easy to play as any six string and the only 12-string ever to rival my old, well-broken-in Custom Balladeer. For the first time since I bought it in 1987, my trusty old standby has a soul mate. I've got some spruce to boom with and this walnut to sweeten the mix.
