I have owned this guitar for a few years, I rushed into buying it without really understanding it. I played a 6 string Ovation years ago and loved the way it sounded and just thought this would be the same. Don't get me wrong its a very good guitar, but its extremely twangy sounding unplugged. Its so twangy sounding that I went out and purchased another 12 string to play unplugged, a 25 year old Yamaha. Its fabulous sounding and would recommend one to anyone, not expensive and sounds great. The Ovation plugged in, you can vary the sound quite a bit using the equalizer and built in special effects, and it does not sound as twangy plugged in. But it is prone to feedback if you turn it up and stand anywhere near your amp. It also is very deep bass sound to it even with the low frequency on the built in equalizer turned down low. However, my Cube amp is prone to sounding deep bass so I am not sure if its the Ovation guitar that is so bassy sounding while plugged in or if its just purely my amp or both. I have ordered a new Spark BIAS amp, expected to receive it in June 2020, so I will find out if it sounds better on that. The BIAS amp is small and not meant for stage performances but it has 100 different pedals in the software so the variations of sound is almost endless. You can also use iTunes and other apps to bring music in so you can play along with the songs while it shows you the cords for the song as its playing. It also has an option to have its own drummer and bass to play along with you after it understands your playing for a short while. It will also record tracks for you in the software so you can layer your music to play along with. forward to trying this amp. However this review is not about the amp its about the guitar. I think there are better 12 string guitars out there unplugged but plugged in, this guitar is worth checking out.
