Ovation has a legendary standing in the music industry, and no other guitar is so steeped in Ovation’s rich history than the Balladeer. Ovation gives a nod to its roots with the 2012 introduction of the new Standard Balladeer VL guitar (1771VL-1).
At the heart of this retro-style guitar is Ovation’s “Vintage Lyrachord®” Roundback®, made from the same materials used on the early Ovation guitar models from the 60’s and 70’s. The interwoven layers of glass filaments are bound together by hybrid resins to create a lightweight and sonically resonate body that enhances Ovation’s signature note-to-note balance and projection.
The Standard Balladeer VL Guitar has a solid Spruce top, Sunburst finish, and Rosewood fingerboard.
