The Fender was only $400 so it is ok but nothing outstanding.
The Ovation, unplugged, sounds like an Ovation. Some love it, some hate it. I like it.
Plugged in the Ovation sounds HUGE. Here is a goofy little thing I posted with it using just a bit of chorus on my amp. It's at the bottom of the first post. James Bond Meets the Pink Panther
The Breedlove, unplugged or plugged in, well, if I could marry a guitar.............

Had a session recently sitting in a guitar shop trying a few new instruments. The AEs were dull compared to even budget acoustics. And of course that was because so many AEs have plywood (purists call it laminate) tops. They depend on being played plugged in. My search took me to some better AEs with solid tops and the sound was so much richer.
Being pedantic, I believe all AE guitars should be able to be played unplugged. When you buy your AE, make sure you compare it to an acoustic at the same time. I mean side by side. Listen to both. When you're happy with the acoustic sound, then ask for an amp to try it plugged in.
Or, on the other hand, you may be satisfied with just half a guitar. I'm not.
Keep in touch.
