An outstanding instrument with lushious woods, exquisite details and sophisticated electronics.
Ovation is proud to introduce a 30-instrument limited edition run of the 1798 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 cutaway round-back 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.
Ovation’s Deep Bowl body generates maximum unamplified volume and enormous low end, yet it’s easier to hold and play then a traditional jumbo-body guitar. Models sporting Deep Bowl bodies also perform impressively when plugged in, thanks to Ovation’s advanced onboard electronics. A “sonic cannon” that shines either unplugged or through a sound system or stage amp, a Deep Bowl Ovation offers the best of both electric and acoustic worlds.
