I love it! My first good guitar was an ovation.

I still have a dream/plan to pick up another beat up American made Balladeer and retop it. They are fantastic guitars.

Its pretty interesting how Takamine didn't really become a force in the Acoustic world until they teamed up with Kaman to get fantastic pickups and their designs sorted out to accomodate such (not to mention access to Kaman's gigantic distribution network..)... The rest is history and they are now probably the #1 stage guitar - having overtaken Ovation in the early 2,000's...
