When you want an instrument that's one-of-a-kind, there's no better place to find it than in this selection of Ovation acoustic guitars. Right from the beginning, they made a name for themselves as being out of the ordinary. That's because the company's founder, Charles Kaman, started out as an aeronautical engineer and he imported the high-tech aviation materials from his past into guitars designed for the future. Ovation acoustic guitars owe their most unique feature to that history: each one has a special rounded composite back, and it gives them a sound and feel that's all their own.
Their backs aren't the only things that make Ovation acoustic guitars different. Check out the Elite series and you'll see what we mean: gone is the traditional center tone hole. In instruments like the Celebrity Elite Acoustic-Electric Guitar and Custom Elite C2078 AX Deep Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar, it's been replaced with an arrangement of 22 smaller holes closer to the neck. The result? Better volume, lower feedback when the guitar is plugged in... and, of course, a cool distinctive look.
If you would rather have a traditional top on your Ovation acoustic guitar, no sweat - there are plenty of those, too. The Celebrity Standard Plus Mid Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a great example, as is the Standard Balladeer 2751 AX 12-String. Are you searching for Ovation's top-of-the-line? In that case, consider the Custom Legend C2079 AX Deep Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar. It's all about premium materials and technology, from the AAA solid-spruce top and 5-piece mahogany/maple neck to the onboard compressor and OP-Pro Studio Preamp, plus Dual XLR and 1/4" output jacks.
Choosing the features you like best is the first step to picking out an Ovation acoustic guitar of your own, and with an impressive list of parts and materials gracing each and every model, any one is a fantastic choice. Whatever your musical style and experience level, Ovation acoustic guitars are worthy additions to your collection as well as the perfect ways to break tradition and see what a little bit of innovation can do for your sound.
