Timeless Design. Born in the '60s, the original Balladeer was the center soundhole model that started it all. Today's Balladeer pays tribute to historic design while incorporating the many advances made along the way. A deluxe soundboard made of hand-selected, AA solid spruce is the heart and soul of the Balladeer. The mid depth cutaway body shape represents the latest evolution of Ovation's pioneering, Lyrachord design. It makes the Balladeer a comfortable fit, whether sitting or standing. Ovation's slightly shorter scale length, slightly narrower nut and 10" fretboard radius give the 5-piece satin mahogany/maple neck a fast feel. The traditional inlaid oak-leaf rosette offers an elegant touch against New England burst finish. The Balladeer's OP-Pro preamp and OCP1K pickup produce uncompromising plugged-in performance for the most discriminating left handed player. Ovation's Timeless Collection Balladeer is a modern classic.
