DJ Ashba DJA34-BY
Blazing Rock Art
Ovation’s R&D team collaborated with Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba to fine-tune every sonic and visual aspect of the four Limited Edition models in the Demented Collection. With its spruce top, high-performance scalloped X-bracing, and Mid-Depth cutaway composite body, the Bone Yard sounds as impressive as it looks. Ovation’s Slimline pickup has individual sensors for each string, and the OP-4BT preamp offers +/-12 dB control over the bass, midrange, and treble frequencies for great tonal flexibility.
To create the Bone Yard’s amazing graphics, DJ Ashba worked with “Olive Artist” Michael Godard to create a scene showing a Devil Olive stripper dancing on a bed of burning skulls while a menacing crow observes the fiery action.
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 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.
