This BRAND NEW addition to the Elite series acoustic electric guitars, the Ovation Elite Plus Contour, boasts several upgrades over the original. For starters, the AAA solid spruce top with hand-selected exotic veneer looks and sounds better than ever. Next, the signature rounded composite body and upgraded 5-piece mahogany/maple neck are lighter, richer, and more natural for a playing experience even more acoustic players will appreciate. Finally, the onboard Op-Pro Studio preamp features an onboard compressor in addition to its EQ section and tuner to smooth out chords, fingerpicked parts, and leads straight from the stage or direct into a recording medium.
The Elite Plus Contour’s solid spruce top provides excellent projection, balance, and focus to Ovation’s upgraded Lyrachord body. And for a bold look that’ll capture an audience’s attention, a hand-selected exotic wood veneer gives the Elite Plus Contour the look of a custom instrument.
Ovation’s lightweight Lyrachord composite body now provides a richer and more dynamic playing response acoustically or plugged in. A comfortable curve keeps the Elite Plus Contour from digging into the player’s body during performances, and a cutaway provides easy access to higher frets for solos and lead work.
The Elite Plus Contour’s Op-Pro Studio preamp now includes an onboard compressor to smooth out playing dynamics. This helps to tame distracting jumps in level when plugged in direct. A three-band EQ section with mid-dip switch lets you sculpt a tone that’s perfectly tailored to your voice or ensemble, and an onboard tuner will keep you in tune between songs. For a gutsy-sounding direct tone that gives you full tonal control of your guitar from the stage, Sweetwater guitarists recommend checking out the Ovation Elite Plus Contour.
Comes complete in a custom shaped ovation flight case.
