Have owned this guitar with ovation guitar strings for year and it’s never failed me. It sounds incredible. If the strings buzz, it’s prolly because your action is too low and you’re playing it with a not so sensitive touch. Sounds clear and resonates when hooks up to an amp. For the price, you can’t beat this, especially since it’s a very unique shape with a round back. Feels even more feminine than the usual odd shaped dreadnoughts others are used to playing. It’s not only rounder in shape, the sound matches it with warm and round tones that ring out clearer than most guitars within the $300-500 price range.
