Ovation 2778AX-5 Standard Elite Electro Acoustic, Black
Ovation 2778AX-5 Standard Elite Electro Acoustic, BlackThis Standard Elite features a hand-selected, deluxe AA solid-spruce top with scalloped bracing, and Ovation's Contour Bowl composite body, which maximises acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. Ovation's pioneering multi-soundhole design enhances string vibration and sustain by improving soundboard efficiency. The guitar's upper-bout soundholes are inlaid with exotic hardwoods, and a cutaway offers full access to the satin-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck. The Standard Elite's OP-Pro preamp and OCP-1K pickup produce uncompromising plugged-in performance.
Made from glass-microsphere impregnated Lyrachord composite, Ovation's Contour Bowl is designed to provide maximum acoustic response with the feel of a small-body instrument. Sculpted to fit the contour of the player's anatomy, the lightweight Lyrachord GS body is a joy to hold, whether sitting or standing. A Contour Bowl body has the acoustic projection, midrange punch, and huge bottom end of a traditional jumbo-style instrument, yet offers the playing comfort of Ovation's Super-Shallow body. With its tough-as-nails construction, this body shape represents the latest evolution of Ovation's pioneering roundback design.
Designed in collaboration with jazz guitarist Al Di Meola and acoustic rocker Melissa Etheridge, the OP-Pro combines state-of-the-art audio quality with exclusive features designed to meet the needs of professional guitarists. The easy-to-operate unit offers 3-band EQ, a preset tone enhancement circuit, a battery status light, and a chromatic tuner. The OP-Pro will please even the most discriminating player.
