Blend of alternative and traditional materials provides rich projection and striking appearance.
Ovation is proud to introduce its new 2080ES acoustic-electric guitar and MM80 acoustic-electric mandolin. Both instruments are handcrafted in Ovation’s New Hartford, CT facility using a harmonious blend of the finest alternative and natural materials to create striking instruments that offer great sound and playability. Production for each model will be limited to 30 pieces.

The 2080ES features a deep-contour cutaway Lyrachord® body, while the MM80 features a Lyrachord® mandolin cutaway body. Both offer distinctively powerful, articulate tone that is rich with projection.
