Ovation's 2009 Collectors' Series strikes a perfect balance between acoustic purity and electric performance. A hand-selected figured Koa top produces warm, full-bodied tones while its lightweight Contour body pumps out plenty of volume. Abalone appointments give the guitar a distinctive look, adorning its delicate Celtic knot rosette and fingerboard. An additional 200 pieces of abalone frame the top. Ovation's OP Pro Studio preamp powers the electric side and features exclusive "expressor"/drive controls that accentuate each individual note when playing finger style or single note passages. Additional features include a deep contour GS body, Scalloped LX bracing, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck and ebony fingerboard.
Retail: $3599 including deluxe molded case.
