An outstanding instrument with lushious woods, exquisite details and sophisticated electronics.
Ovation is proud to introduce a 30-instrument limited edition run of the 2098 Figured Koa Elite—a gorgeous new koa-topped take on traditional Ovation design. Its clean lines and striking 5A flame koa top impart a clean, focused sound, with a larger bass side oval sound hole for great low-end projection.
Other premium features include a deep contour Lyrachord body with convenient Venetian cutaway, “T”-shaped Quintad spruce bracing, elegant tortoiseshell rosette and tortoiseshell body binding with multi-stripe purfling, soft “V”-shaped mahogany neck with bone nut and dual action truss rod, 22-fret ebony fingerboard with 10” radius and 12th-fret oval koa inlay, rear-loading ebony bridge with compensated saddle, gold Schaller® tuners, and Ovation OCP1-K pickup and OP-PRO preamp system for superior amplified tone and power.
Made from glass-microsphere impregnated Lyrachord composite, Ovation’s Contour Bowl is designed to provide maximum acoustic response with the feel of a small-body instrument. Sculpted to fit the contour of the player’s anatomy, the lightweight Lyrachord GS body is a joy to hold, whether sitting or standing. A Contour Bowl body has the acoustic projection, midrange punch, and huge bottom end of a traditional jumbo-style instrument, yet offers the playing comfort of Ovation’s Super-Shallow body. With its tough-as-nails construction, this body shape represents the latest evolution of Ovation’s pioneering Roundback® design.
