The Ovation Elite Plus is lighter, louder, richer and fuller - everything you've wanted an acoustic-electric guitar to be. Featuring a premium soundboard made from hand-selected exotic woods with LX scalloped bracing, the Elite Plus responds evenly from the lightest touch to hard grinding power chords. Ovation's pioneering multi-sound hole design enhances string vibration and sustain by improving soundboard efficiency. A cutaway offers full access to the gloss-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck. A Contour composite body maximizes acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. This guitar also boasts hand-inlaid abalone appointments, a deluxe grade ebony fret board and bridge, and upper-bout sound holes decorated with exotic hardwoods. With its onboard compressor, the OP-Pro Studio preamp enhances strummed chords, finger picked arpeggios, and single-note solos. Connect the Elite Plus to virtually any sound system, stage amp, or recording console, and experience the rich tonal quality.
