Plus CC48 Super Shallow
Advanced Design Made Affordable
Preferred by many stage performers and acoustic guitarists who rely on amplification, Ovation’s Super-Shallow composite body feels similar to an electric, yet it retains all the benefits and acoustic properties of our proven Roundback® technology. Ovation’s pioneering multi-soundhole design improves soundboard efficiency, and delivers increased sustain and volume. An African padauk top and exotic soundhole hardwoods create a striking mix of red, crimson and warm brown hues. The guitar’s lightweight bracing yields a clear amplified tone with plenty of headroom before feedback on stage, and its slim neck has an electric-style profile, 20 hand-finished nickel-silver frets, and low factory-set action. A cutaway insures easy access to the entire fretboard. With its 3-band equalizer and onboard tuner, the instrument’s OP-4BT preamp provides players with flexible tone control in any performance setting.
Super Shallow Bowl
Ovation’s slim Super-Shallow bowl delivers a clear acoustic sound while providing the low-profile comfort of an electric guitar. Offering extremely durable construction, this Lyrachord® composite bowl weighs 33% less than its deeper siblings. Perfectly suited for studio or stage use, guitars equipped with a Super-Shallow body retain the outstanding string-to-string balance of original Ovation designs. Plugged in, Super-Shallow models produce ample volume for any venue. With no hard edges to dig into your rib cage, this easy-to-hold body is also ideal for younger players or smaller guitarists.
The popular OP-4BT preamp features 3-band EQ with +/-12 dB control over the bass, midrange, and treble frequencies, and a handy battery status light. An accurate and easy-to-use onboard chromatic tuner works equally well for standard, open, and altered tunings.
