Ovation 1778 LX Elite Made in the USA!!
This guitar is not perfect, but it is Beautiful!
It has a small Hair-line crack under the 1st & 2nd string.
(you wouldn't notice it unless I told you)
With the crack, it will probably only last another 176 years!
Ovation's popular Elite "LX", given the full upgrade treatment!
The ovation Elite has been given a full upgrade with the LX. It's lighter, louder, richer and fuller -
all the things you want your guitar to be. LX innovations include:
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 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 a new 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.
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.
Designed in collaboration with Al DiMeola and Melissa Etheridge, the new 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 engineers.
