Ovation 1868TX-5-G E-Acoustic Guitar Elite TX Super Shallow
Ovation Elite models are special, both for the eyes and the ears.
They dispense with the classic sound hole in the middle of the top in favour of several smaller openings at the edge of the guitar, called Multi Soundholes. This special construction has two positive effects: firstly, it increases the available vibration surface in the centre of the soundboard, and secondly, the sound comes out much closer to the ear of the person playing.
Visually, the Multi Soundholes are unique in themselves. Some models are additionally decorated with elegant epaulettes. A guaranteed eye-catcher on all stages.
The instruments of the Elite TX series are particularly unique, and it is no coincidence that they are very popular in the rock and metal scene. Those who are used to playing electric guitars especially benefit enormously from features like the maple neck, which not only stands for a fast response and good sustain, but is also equipped with a flat neck profile for optimal playability.
