Ovation

Description

This 1868TX Elite AA Spruce acoustic-electric guitar features both of Ovation’s Super Shallow and Mid-Depth Bowl, which are ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. A maple top and Ovation’s legendary lightweight, yet high-strength bracing, give this guitar tremendous sonic power. An ultrathin finish allows the AA spruce soundboard to resonate freely, and soundports on the bass-string side of Ovation’s sculpted cutaway composite body enhance lower-frequency projection.

Shaped to offer the fast feel of an electric guitar, the slim, hard-rock maple neck delivers superior sustain, while the OP-Pro preamp and OCP-1K pickup produce uncompromising plugged-in performance.
