The Ultimate Ovation
Handcrafted in Ovation’s flagship workshop in New Hartford, Connecticut, the Custom Legend features a premium AAA solid-spruce top with LX scalloped bracing. The classic Mid-Depth composite body delivers balanced acoustic tone and is comfortable to hold and play. A cutaway offers full access to the gloss-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck. The guitar boasts an ebony fretboard and bridge, and hand-set abalone purfling and fretboard inlays. The traditional center soundhole has a gorgeous laser-cut oak-leaf and abalone rosette. With its onboard compressor, the OP-Pro Studio preamp enhances strummed chords, fingerpicked arpeggios, and single-note solos. Dual XLR and ¼” output jacks connect the Custom Legend Contour to virtually any sound system, stage amp, or recording console.
Mid Depth Bowl
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.
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.
