From Our Research Team:
Al Di Meola Signature Model!Just because it sports a center-soundhole, don't dare call it traditional. The Ovation roundback body, AAA top and five-piece neck are crafted into an instrument that yields unwavering tonal control - lowest low to highest high - a clarity and volume that is simply unattainable to "traditional" guitarmakers.
The 1769-ADII Custom Legend is the Al Di Meola Signature Model!
Over 300 individual pieces of abalone shell are hand-inlaid into each Custom Elite and Custom Legend, a stunning appearance in any finish. The Custom Legend rosette is also abalone shell in the Ovation oak leaf pattern. Both rank with the finest custom made instruments as examples of pure guitarmaking art.
The Ultimate Spruce Soundboard
These AAA-graded tops are the most flexible and consistent Sitka spruce tops available. Only 5% of all our graded tops are chosen for these fine instruments. Notice that the Custom Legend A-shaped bracing and the Quintad pattern used on the Custom Elite are primarily longitudinal, giving the top greater freedom of vibration. The result is a guitar that can pump out a tremendously broad and powerful sound.
5-Piece Speed and Beauty
The 5-piece mahogany and maple neck is contoured to a "soft-V", the most ergonomic of neck shapes. The bound ebony fingerboard is decorated with abalone inlays and fitted with nickel silver frets. Each of the frets is crowned, dressed and polished by hand, then the fingerboard and neck are finished with Danish oil.
Designed in collaboration with Al DiMeola and Melissa Etheridge, the new OP-PRO combines state-of-the-art audio quality with guitarist-friendly features for a preamp that should please even the most discriminating player.

Very Special For Recording
by Mitchell Dancik from Cary, NC, USAI was attracted to this guitar based on hearing it on various recordings and at concerts - not just from Al Di Meola. It was actually far better than I expected. The construction, inlays, setup are su... read more [+]perb - a lot more quality than the better known guitar companies would offer at this price. On recordings it really has something special, allowing for a great alternative to the more recognized everyday acoustic sounds. If you plug it in direct you will get that classic "Al Di Meola Ovation" sound, but I find that recording it with a microphone is even better. You can see and hear that the artist was involved and that a lot of care went into this signature model. close [-]

Could be great
by John from Santa Rosa, CA USAThe high E string on my guitar is weak in punch compared to the rest of the strings, as specially compared to the B string. It is also week on clarity.
