Can you still get the effects of an Electric guitar with an Ovation Electric-Acoustic?

The Ovation is a fine acoustic guitar different only by the amplification factor. It was designed to amplify its body acoustics and not for heavy based effects like distortion. However, being amplified means that you can still use some good effects. Many professionals like an ethereal sound by adding a small amount of chorus, reverb and maybe a touch of flanger or phaser.
