Ovation 1868TX-5 Elite T Acoustic Electric Guitar


Sleek. Simple. High Performance. Say Hello to the Modern TX Collection, an evolved instrument built for playing live. Shaped to offer the fast feel of an electric guitar, the hard, rock maple neck contributes to sustaining and added brightness to an already responsive instrument. The lightweight, super shallow, textured Lyrachord body is very comfortable to play and offers a crisp tone. The OP-Pro preamp and OCP1 pickup combination produce a high output, uncompromised plugged-in performance.
