Overview

The new Ovation Elite Plus is lighter, louder, richer and fuller – everything you’ve wanted an acoustic guitar to be. Featuring a premium soundboard made from hand-selected exotic woods with LX scalloped bracing, the Elite Plus responds evenly from the lightest touch to hard grinding power chords.

Ovation’s pioneering multi-soundhole design enhances string vibration and sustain by improving soundboard efficiency. A cutaway offers full access to the gloss-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck. A Contour composite body maximizes acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. This guitar also boasts hand-inlaid abalone appointments, a deluxe grade ebony fretboard and bridge, and upper-bout soundholes decorated with exotic hardwoods.

With its onboard compressor, the OP-Pro Studio preamp enhances strummed chords, fingerpicked arpeggios, and single-note solos. Connect the Elite Plus to virtually any sound system, stage amp, or recording console, and experience the rich tonal quality of the Elite plus. Includes hardshell case.

      Comments about Ovation C2078AXP Elite Plus Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I own a number of high end guitars and a vintage Legend Deluxe (long before the "Custom") for almost 40 years. The Elite Plus is simply a piece of art that has amazing feel. If you like narrow fret board Fenders, have smaller hands or just prefer
      a slim cut 43mm nut then this is your acoustic. If you are looking for a classic acoustic sound ringing sound, it is not. The sound reminds me more of a hybrid mixture of glassy humbucker and traditional acoustic out of the box without amplification. This translates very well to an acoustic amp and PA. I play everything acoustic (classic and southern rock, modern progressive stuff, some country, some finger picking) so this provides the versatility to do so. It comes with medium (0.12) which is heavier than I typically use, but the silkiness of the board is simply wonderful. I have not customized the set up yet, but the action out of the box was perfect for the heavier strings. The deep contour bowl is much easier to hold than my vintage Legend Deluxe. I looked at many wonderful guitars in the $1000-$1200 price point. Overall, nothing compares to this if you're looking for the whole package...playability, versatile sound, and beautiful instrument. I bought this guitar as my "outside" guitar because I don't take my $3K acoustics outside in the FL Summer humidity. My wife dances hula and at competitions where the music must be played live by rule. Almost all of the professional Hawaiian musicians at the competitions play Ovations because of the very reasons I outlined above. My GC doesn't typically carry high end Ovations, so we had to order it and hope it would live up to expectations. It arrived in factory packaging...there were audible gasps when we opened the case because it was so stunning. Seriously. Played it for 6-8 hours on the first day....medium strings ouch!

      Tiger Eye Ovation, or Eye of the Tiger Ovation

      Comments about Ovation C2078AXP Elite Plus Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      What a great "gun slinger" guitar. Where do I start. Extremely balanced tone. Bright, full, and deep. Not too boomy. The neck is spot on . It's a fast playing. Rock solid. I took a shim out of the bridge and tweek the truss rod with the supplied Allen wrench. Now the action is almost too good. Considering putting the shim back in.lol. The Tiger eye finish is beautiful. But wait. Plug it in and it really is awesome. Yes it's not as good putting a mic on. And you can do that. The EQ, and compressor is great. You just don't want to put it down. The sustain and the harmonics are great. Save your 5 to 10k Taylors for safe haven environments. Feel free to jam on the Ovation. Also the intonation is dead on... It looks great, plays like a dream, and has a great killer tone. What more would you want, and not have to break the bank.
