The Ovation iDea is the first acoustic guitar of its kind to feature a built-in MP3 recorder and player. A digital recorder built into the Ovation preamp makes it easy to record entire songs or fragments— even vocals and commentary on the fly. The Ovation iDea is also a learning tool that offers audio lessons on chords, arpeggios, harmonics, and more, pre-installed in the guitar's onboard memory.
Files in the Ovation iDea guitar can be moved, renamed, deleted and rearranged right on your computer's desktop. Download and play mixes from recording software, rhythm tracks, and even songs you want to learn either through the guitar output or headphones. Several jam tracks are also pre-installed in the Ovation iDea Acoustic-Electric Guitar and additional tracks are available online.

Our guitars are not pre-owned. They have never been sold to a consumer.
We hand select all guitars that we offer for sale from the refurbisher's inventory of over 3000 guitars. We also test each guitar to ensure that all of the components work properly. As we offer each guitar for sale, we include information on any visible repairs and provide photos.
The refurbisher that we work with purchases guitars directly from the manufacturer. These guitars did not pass the manufacturers quality control or they were returned to the manufacturer from music stores unsold for one reason or other. Generally these guitars have minor finish imperfections, minor damage that occurred during manufacture,or minor issues with electronics or hardware. Music store returns may sometimes have been used as demos and may have light pick scratches or may have been overstocks of discontinued models.
The refurbisher uses a six step inspection process as part of their restoration process to ensure all issues are identified and corrected. We then inspect and test the electronics on all of our inventory before offering them for sale. Through this process we know that the guitars we offer have been MORE thoroughly inspected than their "new" counterparts. Our reputation is on the line with every guitar we sell and want to be sure that we offer only the best guitars.
So,what is the deal with the "used" stamp if these guitars are not "pre-owned"?
During the restoration process the guitar is stamped "used" in small letters on the back of the headstock. At the same time, the original serial number was removed and replaced with a serial number assigned by the refurbisher. This is done to prevent warranty claims as these guitars are offered without warranty.
