The Ovation Standard Balladeer LX features a super shallow body with an A Grade solid Sitka spruce top, scalloped LX bracing, and a satin finish 5-piece mahogany/maple neck with a bound rosewood fingerboard. Chrome tuners, a tusq nut and a rosewood bridge keep your intonation right on the mark and give your strings the surfaces they need to perform at their best. An Ovation Original Patented Pickup and OP-Pro preamp w/chromatic tuner make plugging in satisfying, not frustrating. Straplok strap buttons keep your baby secure.
The LX is everything you love about the original Standard Balladeer with some very nice upgrades. It's lighter, louder, richer and fuller - all the things you want your guitar to be.
The new Op-Pro Preamp is voiced to give you arena-sized sound with a minimum of EQ gymnastics. Every improvement comes directly from the needs of pro guitar players and sound engineers.
Advanced Neck System
A lightweight dual-action truss rod makes precision adjustments simple. Carbon fiber stabilizers keep the fingerboard perfectly aligned at the neck/body joint.
Six separate elements sense both string and top vibration, giving you a better string-to-string balance, no matter what string type or gauge you use.
The exotic wood leaf-shaped epaulets are now inlaid into the top with laser precision. The new cleaner design actually offers a slight sound enhancement.
Play a new LX and prepare to be impressed by the hugeness of the acoustic sound. Deeper, richer but with the legendary Ovation balance and clarity.
The smooth, hard composite Lyrachord GS body improves projection and reflects top vibrations better than traditional material and is now even lighter and stronger.
With the introduction of micro spheres, the new Lyrachord GS bowl weighs one half pound less than the original Lyrachord bowl. An integrated platform, molded in the bowl at the neck joining area is the start of a stable structure that supports the entire neck.
Laser cutting the epaulettes allows for an exact fit and optimizes the yield of exotic wood.
After curing in a climate-controlled environment for over three months, Ovation spruce tops are pocketed for inlaid epaulettes or rosettes.
Using CNC technology, braces blanks are scalloped to exacting tolerances.

This is my faforite guitar I have ever had! It has an amazing sound to it that just makes me want to cry when I play it!! I play in a band so it is plugged up to a PA every thurs. The battery life in the tunner lasts forever ( more like a whole year) It have had the black one for about a year and a half and still can't see any of the scratches.:) It is one of the greatest Electric Acoustics ever...
