This Standard Balladeer features a hand-selected, deluxe AA solid-spruce top with scalloped bracing, and Ovation's Contour Bowl, which maximizes acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. A cutaway offers full access to the satin-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck, and a traditional center soundhole is inlaid with an oak-leaf rosette and adorned with mother-of-pearl. The Balladeer's OP-Pro preamp and OCP-1K pickup produce uncompromising plugged-in performance. Made from glass-microsphere impregnated Lyrachord composite, Ovation's Contour Bowl is designed to provide maximum acoustic response with the feel of a small-body instrument. Sculpted to fit the contour of the player's anatomy, the lightweight Lyrachord GS body is a joy to hold, whether sitting or standing. A Contour Bowl body has the acoustic projection, midrange punch, and huge bottom end of a traditional jumbo-style instrument, yet offers the playing comfort of Ovation's Super-Shallow body. With its tough-as-nails construction, this body shape represents the latest evolution of Ovation's pioneering Roundback design. The easy-to-operate unit offers 3-band EQ, a preset tone enhancement circuit, a battery status light, and a chromatic tuner. The OP-Pro will please even the most discriminating player.
