The Ovation 1617ALE-1 is a limited production model with only 50 guitars offered in the fall of 2011. Its unique feature set, never offered before, includes a hand-selected Adirondack Spruce top, deep cutaway body made from Original Lyrachord, and the new “Low Profile” pickup with increased note-to-note clarity. The guitars are sequentially numbered and come accompanied with a certificate of authenticity.
Ovation’s Deep Bowl body generates maximum unamplified volume and enormous low end, yet it’s easier to hold and play then a traditional jumbo-body guitar. Models sporting Deep Bowl bodies also perform impressively when plugged in, thanks to Ovation’s advanced onboard electronics. A “sonic cannon” that shines either unplugged or through a sound system or stage amp, a Deep Bowl Ovation offers the best of both electric and acoustic worlds.
The OP-Pro Studio 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, exciter and compressor/limiter circuitry, and a chromatic tuner. Ovation’s exclusive Expressor and Drive sliders put dynamic control and harmonic enhancement at your fingertips, allowing you to dial in the precise amount of sustain and punch required by the music.
