Well, I've had my Ultra Deluxe SS for several months now and I have
found that the only thing that helps is putting a strap adjusted in
rather tight. I know thats not a great fix, but I think its better than
glueing something to the guitar.
Does it not have a roughened patch at the bottom of the bowl where it rests
on your thigh? My legend does and it is usually OK. One way to fix your
problem would be to buy some double-sided tape and cut a piece from a car
rubber mat and attach the rubber to the guitar that way. When you sell it
just take the tape off and wash the remains of the glue off with warm water
and some detergent. I don't like the feel of the strap.

3M sells roll material for surfaces like stairs and such. It is sold
at just about any hardware store. It comes in two varieties black and
grey, with the grey being a little more flexible and not quite as
rough. It has a pressure sensitive (sticky) back. You could cut it to
any shape you wanted. It comes in three widths and is sold by the foot.
You shouldn't have great difficulties getting it off if you decided
you didn't like it.
It's much worse with the big bowls. The Super Shallow guys are a
lot easier to hold steady, IMO.

My old guitar teacher had a piece of velcro on the bottom of his ovation. I
would also guess that glues would not be too much of a problem with the
fibreglass body (no veneer to remove). I have a shallow bowl celebrity and
have had no problems, i just hold it in place with my right elbow.
That's strong words from a man who admits to having a Seagull! :-)
All joking aside, I would never want to take something like a 1962
Gibson Humminbird on stage at a club. I would spend the whole night
just watching to make sure nobody would get grimy, theive-like hands on

What about me?
As for the slipping problem - hey, hasn't anybody heard of a thing called a
guitar strap - the leather/material thing you hook onto a guitar and the hang
it round your neck/shoulders?
: Anybody wanna help me finish a list of Ovation players? I'll start with:
: Al Di Meola
: Glen Campbell
: Joan Armatrading....
A waste of our collective time, if you'll pardon my bluntness.
First, Ovation has done this, in a flier that shows what looks to be a
hundred or so players who use Ovations. (Check with your dealer; and
they may use this list in advertisements...I would.)
Second, those who hate Ovation and talk about it's "rubber-bandy" or
"plasticky" sound will not be swayed.

I don't know. I'd have to say get a full bodied Ovation. Just has so
much nicer tone.
