This is probably one of the most beautiful guitars I’ve seen lately and will probably be one of the most desired from next months, the new model by Ovation. The Ovation iDea Guitar is not only a guitar with a preamp… it’s a recording and playback unit, like having your iPod and a Edirol R-09 inside the guitar. It plays (from the USB port) and records to MP3 files (with the included memory), not only from your guitar but with the on-board mic and with the aux input, even at the same time, but if you though that was not enough it also has a built-in tuner, guitar lessons, jam tracks, do you want more?
Talking only about guitar features these are mid-depth body with spruce top, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets, 25″ scale length and rosewood bridge. But talking about what makes different the Ovation iDea Electric Acoustic Guitar, it comes with Ovation iDea OPi-1 preamp, Ovation saddle pickup, built-in condenser mic (you have to look pretty close to see it), 3-band EQ and volume control, repeat (loops a part of the track), rec (starts the recording) and play/stop buttons, USB port, headphones output and LCD panel with joystick for navigation.
Nothing is known about Ovation iDea Electric Acoustic Guitar availability date or price but first I hope it’s soon, but second I know it won’t be cheap, but it probably worths the money.
