You heard it here first

Scientists at M.I.T. have concluded that, as a matter of physics, it is impossible to look cool while playing an Ovation guitar. Don't I know it--I had one (in fact, I had the cheaper Celebrity model) throughout high school and college. Sigh.

Indeed. I still have a Celebrity, in fact. It's a mid-80's model and sounds pretty nice and plays decently - if you can keep it from sliding off your lap - but it definitely does NOT give you the cool points that, say, a Gibson SJ-200 or Hummingbird does. I have a beat-up 60's Harmony Hollywood to compensate for this fact.

The thing is, I lusted after that Celebrity when I first saw it hanging in the store. What a foul enchantress it was. Your Harmony Hollywood is quite a rarity--you should hold onto that thing forever.

I beg a differ, I think that the way Ovations look are a work of art!
