Ovation TX DS778TX-5 Elite D-Scale, Black
Average rating / 5
Ovation Elite TX DS778TX-5 D-Scale, BlackDesigned to deliver fat, chunky tones in today's popular baritone and drop tunings
The Ovation D scale guitar is a true one of a kind. It's not your standard baritone. Tuned a full step lower to D-G-C-F-A-D, this guitar will fit easily into any style of music. Just capo the 2nd fret and you've got a standard tuned acoustic. Take off the capo and you've got a whole new instrument.
The D scale will open up a world of possibilities for open tunings. With a scale length of 28 1/3", this guitar achieves the voicing of a baritone with the playing ease of a standard 6-string.
The top is made of solid spruce with a lightweight textured black finish. A thin finish, along with scalloped bracing, maximizes top vibration and sustain giving the D scale a clear tone advantage.
The D's neck is made from rock maple and finished in natural stain. This neck ain't bashful.
The D scale is topped off in pure Ovation style with an OP Pro preamp and is mated with the Ovation high output pickup, which provides even string-to-string output with any string gauge and any open tuning.
The Mid-Depth bowl blends elements of Ovation's Super-Shallow and Deep Bowl designs. Acoustically, the Mid-Depth bowl delivers impressive projection and rich tone, yet even smaller guitarists find it comfortable to hold and play. It's no surprise Ovation's LX, AX, and TX models all feature a Mid-Depth body: Its proprietary Lyrachord construction and roundback design let it outperform typical "box" guitars. For decades, hardworking musicians have relied on Mid-Depth Ovation guitars to cut through the mix, whether played acoustically in a living room or run through a concert hall sound system.
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.
