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 Legend 2077 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. A cutaway offers full access to the gloss-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck, and the traditional center soundhole is inlaid with an oak-leaf rosette and adorned with mother-of-pearl. With its onboard compressor, the OP-Pro Studio preamp enhances strummed chords, fingerpicked arpeggios, and single-note solos.
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.
The ccombines 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.
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.
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 an 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. Includes case.

Comments about Ovation Legend 2077 AX Deep Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
Ok, bought the 2077ax-5 and have had it since 11/11. Was very impressed with the fit and finish of the guitar upon receiving it. (Not purchased from GC) The newer bowl shape really fits nicely when sitting down. I had always remembered the round bowls that slipped and weren't much fun for sitting and playing. The sound is crisp and has distinct lows, mids, and highs. Whether playing unplugged or with an amp, Ovation truly lives up to its reputation of being a great live acoustic guitar. Major problem with the craftsmanship on my guitar. After four months i noticed some bulging and warped paint around the bridge. Upon inspection it cracked, snapped, and popped and i have a bridge starting to separate from the body. Yikes!!! I have initated a warranty claim and it appears that Ovation is going to replace the guitar entirely. For now i'm going to chalk it up to freak chance. I have never heard of Ovations being anything less than superb in terms of craftsmanship and sound.
