Overview

Ovation AX Series Guitars offer the exact same specs and features of their LX siblings at a price that makes them exceptional values.

The Ovation Elite 2078 AX Deep Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a hand-selected, deluxe AA solid-spruce top with LX scalloped bracing. The guitar's Deep Contour Bowl composite body maximizes acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. Ovation's pioneering multi-soundhole design enhances string vibration and sustain by improving soundboard efficiency. The guitar's upper-bout soundholes are inlaid with exotic hardwoods, and a cutaway offers full access to the gloss-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck. With its onboard compressor, the OP-Pro Studio preamp enhances strummed chords, fingerpicked arpeggios, and single-note solos.

Deep Bowl
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.

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.

OP-Pro Studio
The OP-Pro Studio combines state-of-the-art audio quality with exclusive features designed to meet the needs of professional guitarists. The easy-to-operate unit offers 3-band EQ, exciter and compressor/limiter circuitry, and a chromatic tuner. Ovation's exclusive Expressor and Drive sliders put dynamic control and harmonic enhancement at your fingertips, allowing you to dial in the precise amount of sustain and punch required by the music.

The 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 players and sound.

Patented Pickup
Six separate elements sense both string and top vibration, giving you a better string-to-string balance, no matter what string type or guage you use.

Inlaid Epaulets
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.

Scalloped Bracing
Play an LX and prepare to be impressed by the hugeness of the acoustic sound. Deeper, richer but with the legendary Ovation balance and clarity.

Lyrachord Body
The smooth, hard composite Lyrachord GS body improves projection and reflects top vibrations better than traditional material and is now even lighter and stronger. Includes case.

The Ovation Elite AX is a good guitar. I practice with it a lot. Tuning is precise. No noise through the built in microphone. Nice wood and body contour.

Phenominal Guitar

By Jeff Crook

from Hammond, IN

Comments about Ovation Elite 2078 AX Deep Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is the smoothest, easiest to play acoustic I have ever encountered in 30 years of experience. This is a well made guitar and it looks stunning. The new "contour" bowl design Ovation now uses is fantastic. Ovation guitars with the contour back no longer slip off my lap and it feels more natural when standing and using a strap. . Forget the "hype" regarding solid wood bodies. The Ovation has a AA spruce top that produces gorgeous tone. Would I buy this Ovation again? Without a doubt.
