The Elite TX Series is designed as an alternative to the traditional Ovation Elite series. Shedding the classic multi-piece hardwood epaulet sound hold decorations, the Ovation 1778TX incorporates a simpler, 11-hole pattern of soundports that enhances the low and mid range frequency projection. A deluxe AA solid-spruce top and Ovation's lightweight, yet high-strength Scalloped X bracing give this guitar tremendous sonic power. An ultra-thin, yet incredibly durable, textured enamel black finish allows the soundboard to resonate freely.
The Ovation 1778TX features a mid-depth body. The Mid-Depth bowl blends elements of Ovationís Super-Shallow and Deep Bowl designs. Acoustically, the Mid-Depth bowl delivers impressive projection and rich tone, yet even smaller guitarists find it comfortable to hold and play. Itís no surprise Ovationís LX, AX, and TX models all feature a Mid-Depth body: Its proprietary Lyrachord construction and roundback design let it outperform typical "box" guitars. For decades, hardworking musicians have relied on Mid-Depth Ovation guitars to cut through the mix, whether played acoustically in a living room or run through a concert hall sound system.
Shaped to offer the fast feel of an electric guitar, the slim, hard-rock maple neck delivers superior sustain. A rosewood fingerboard and bridge, along with black tuners and a tusq nut, keep your intonation right on the mark and give your strings the surfaces they need to perform at their best. Straplok strap buttons keep your baby secure. An Ovation OCP-1K Pickup and OP-Pro preamp w/chromatic tuner make plugging in satisfying, not frustrating.
Designed in collaboration with jazz guitarist Al Di Meola and acoustic rocker Melissa Etheridge, the OP-Pro preamp combines state-of-the-art audio quality with exclusive features designed to meet the needs of professional guitarists. The Op-Pro is voiced to give you arena-sized sound with a minimum of EQ gymnastics. Developed to work specifically with the unique Ovation OCP-1K Pickup, this professional grade system has been engineered to compliment the unique character of Ovation guitars. It provides you with that essential "plugged-in" sound and offers a range of features that will enhance your performance in any venue. The easy-to-operate unit offers 3-band EQ, a preset tone enhancement circuit, a battery status light, and a chromatic tuner. The OP-Pro will please even the most discriminating player.
