Maximum Tone, Supreme Playability
Handcrafted in Ovation’s flagship workshop in New Hartford, Connecticut, the Elite features a hand-selected, deluxe AA solid-spruce top with LX scalloped bracing. The classic Mid-Depth composite body delivers balanced acoustic tone and is comfortable to hold and play. 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 gloss-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck. With its onboard compressor, the OP-Pro Studio preamp enhances strummed chords, fingerpicked arpeggios, and single-note solos.
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.
