Product Description

The Ovation 1778TX is a perfect blend of classic Ovation styling and amazing acoustic versatility. A solid cedar top gives this guitar extraordinary warmth and expands its rich overtones. Precisely calibrated sound holes on the bass side also add a little extra low-end thump making single notes moredefined and clear.Other features on this unique new Ovation include a dark walnut sound-hole epaulet, ultra-thin satin top coat, and a mid-depth cutaway body which allows comfortable access in the upper register frets.

This Guitar Blew Me Away!

What is your opinion of this product?
I own 2 other Ovations a 1979 Custom Legend which I used on the road from 79-83 & a Celebrity Elite CE44-5 which I bought last July. The CE44-5 is my backup and my 1619 is in the shop for a long needed major restoration. I needed another Ovation as my rig is designed for that sound. I saw this one and the 12 Payment option made it a "No Brainer". Well the sound of this guitar, sounds just like the 1619 did back in the day when I was playing it though a 1000 watt stage fallback system. Perfect. Thank You Ovation & Thank You American Musical Supply.

Plays as nice as it looks
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought my Elite TX as a "dent & scratch," but I can't seen any flaw on it. I'm holding at four stars for now, because I haven't owned it very long, and haven't played it through an amp yet, but so far, it's very good. Maybe some of my other guitars are in need of a setup, because the Ovation feels nicer to play than anything else I own. I still hate barre chords, but find them way easier to play on the Elite. The "Zero Gravity" case that I ordered with it is a perfect fit,and seems to provide good protection without the weight of a hardshell case.

great sound, but...
What is your opinion of this product?
I love the sound of this guitar. It had a great, full bodied tone without the hint of plastic sound. Having elite in the name seems fitting, and the electronics were great too. Plugged in, it sounded exactly like it did unplugged. The setup was awful. The lower three strings buzzed when barely picked. I had to adjust the truss rod a lot more than expected from a guitar that had a note included with the setup guy's name from the factory to show company pride. The on board tuner worked well, but had an impossibly miniscule acceptable target. The spalt maple epaulette was sunk into the top wood and glossed over. The epaulette wasn't quite correctly fitted, and extra gloss wasn't used to fill the dip completely at the bottom of the feather. The bright satin neck and headstock looked great in photos and walking up to the guitar, but holding it to play, somehow the shape and color looked unfinished. The little things nagged at me too much for Ovation's pro line. I had to send it back.
