Recently I bought an Ovation guitar, after seeing some videos of people using it for percussive guitar playing, for example here, or here. Even talking "how sensitive and well-suited it is for this style", see here.
But after plugging mine in I discovered it does not pick up the percussion on the body.
Surely, it is another model, but as far as I can tell the Kaki king signature also just uses a Piezo like mine (it is beneath the bridge).
So I am wondering, how to see from the technical specifications if a guitar can pick up the percussive sounds from the body? And is it more the case that most guitars can not do it? What guitars do this well?
