    And the difference between this and the DR-500MCE is......?


    On the surface seems like the 400 has a newer pickup system (no more barn door), a different fingerboard/bridge (likely something similar to richlite) and is about $250 cheaper. Not sure what else, if anything, is different.

    Sorry for not being clear. I haven't bought this one yet, it's not available yet until September, just announced. I was just bringing it up in the forum since it was just announced and looks interesting.

    I am definitely planning on giving one a try when they come out.

    Wait, so that was REAL? I would have seriously posted #20k. I thought it was a joke!

    Good to hear the Colosi saddle is thicker. My J-15 is suffering the same issue - slightly too skinny for the slot. While mine is not leaning to the naked eye, it's still something I want to deal with. I am still not sure if I want to try my hand at making my own saddle or buying a pre-made one from Colosi or one of the other saddle peddlers on the web.

    I have an older Ovation Applause that is my beater guitar. The top and neck are wood, but are coated in such a thick layer of polyester finish they may as well not be. Despite the shallow plastic bowl and heavy finish, it actually sounds pretty good - and has led me to question the belief in the ultimate superiority of top grade woods and thin nitro finishes. It was my first real guitar, and I love it - so I may be viewing it behind rose-colored glasses, but to me it sounds way better than a laminate top, plastic bowl guitar should.
