Overview

The new Custom Legend AX features a hand-selected, premium grade Koa top with LX scalloped bracing. This combination of premium soundboard materials and sonically tuned bracing produces more volume and less dead spots in the audio spectrum. Every note is clear and balanced – no matter where you play on the fingerboard.

The guitar’s Contour composite body maximizes acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. A cutaway offers full access to the gloss-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck.

The Custom Legend AX guitar also boasts an deluxe grade ebony fretboard and bridge, and hand-set abalone body and fretboard inlays. The traditional center soundhole has a gorgeous laser-cut oak-leaf and abalone rosette. With its onboard compressor, the OP-Pro Studio preamp enhances strummed chords, fingerpicked arpeggios, and single-note solos. Dual XLR and ¼” output jacks connect the Custom Legend to virtually any sound system, stage amp, or recording console. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Ovation C2079AXP-KOAB Custom Legend Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Get this guitar before production restarts in the USA. I love to buy USA made products, but the specs on this guitar are the same as the LX models made here before Ovation started production in South Korea. You can rest assured the price will be at least double what it is now. I've been playing for over 40 years, and always wanted an Ovation, but the full round bowl with no cutaway from the 70's just didn't do it for me. It always wanted to slide off my leg. The deep contour design not only retains the deep bowl projection, but is very comfortable to play now. They have finally perfected the design. The preamp sounds as good or better than any others I own or have played. Acoustically, it sounds fantastic. From the players perspective, it doesn't seem quite as loud as an all wood box, but when you're in front of it listening, it is just as loud, and really has a more balanced sound across the frequency spectrum. Detail work is fine, and the Koa veneer and inlay work is gorgeous. You can adjust the action to your taste, by loosening the strings, lifting the pickup out, and removing shims. It came with all shims in place, which ended up being the standard action setting. I removed one very thin shim, which brought it to the perfect slightly lower action that I like, for accessing the upper frets, tapping and hammer ons. It has a truss rod if you need to adjust bow or warp, but it came from the factory with a perfectly straight neck. Comes with an Ovation hard shell case.

      Comments about Ovation C2079AXP-KOAB Custom Legend Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This guitar came straight from the manufacturer . The set up was great and ready to play after using the on board tuner that is easy to use.The on board EQ optimized this guitars sound when I plugged it into my amp . Plugged in or unplugged the sound projection is outstanding . This guitar is well made and the detail put into it is amazing. When I opened the case I thought to myself I had paid way under what they are retailing for. So if you don't have one get one before the price goes up .
