Born in the '60s, the original Balladeer was the center soundhole model that started it all. Today's 12-string Balladeer pays tribute to historic design while incorporating the many advances made along the way. A deluxe soundboard made of hand-selected, AA, solid Sitka spruce is the heart and soul of the Balladeer. The deep contour, 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 and narrower nut give the 5-piece, satin, mahogany/maple neck a fast feel. The traditional, inlaid, oak-leaf rosette offers an elegant touch against a high gloss, black finish. The Balladeer's full-featured OP-Pro preamp and OCP1K pickup produce uncompromising, plugged-in performance for the most discriminating player. Ovation's Timeless Collection Balladeer is a modern classic. Case not included.
