An Ovation Acoustic-electric Built to Melissa's Specs

Ovation pulled out all the stops in sitting down to design a signature instrument with acoustic rock legend Melissa Etheridge. The Melissa Etheridge Signature acoustic-electric guitar features a AA solid spruce top for enhanced sustain for leading or chording, a comfortable Mid-depth Lyrachord composite body with X-bracing for a big, full-range sound unplugged or direct, and a durable five-piece mahogany/maple neck with a responsive ebony fretboard. Melissa's personal touches include white pearloid soundhole epaulets and a signature "ME" Venus 12th-fret inlay. The onboard Ovation OCP-1K pickup and Op-Pro Studio preamp give this guitar a natural and dynamic direct tone, and the powerful EQ section lets players take control of their tone straight from the stage.

Ovation Melissa Etheridge Signature Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Responsive and striking AA spruce top
  • Lyrachord composite body is richer and lighter than ever
  • Ovation OCP-1K pickup and Op-Pro Studio preamp inspire natural and dynamic performances
Responsive and striking AA spruce top

The Melissa Etheridge Signature's solid spruce top brings excellent projection, balance, and focus to Ovation's Mid-depth Lyrachord body, which is built from a tough composite to resist warping and cracking. Melissa's choice of a white top and white pearloid soundhole epaulets give this guitar a stage look that's as bold as its sound.

Lyrachord composite body is richer and lighter than ever

Ovation's lightweight Lyrachord composite body now provides a richer and more dynamic playing response acoustically or plugged in. A comfortable curve keeps the Melissa Etheridge Signature from digging into the player's body during performances, and a cutaway provides easy access to higher frets for solos and lead work.

Ovation OCP-1K pickup and Op-Pro Studio preamp inspire natural and dynamic performances

The Melissa Etheridge Signature guitar is outfitted with Ovation's flagship OCP-1K pickup and Op-Pro Studio preamp. This preamp's 3-band EQ section, drive control, and Expressor (compressor) let you sculpt a tone that's perfectly tailored to your voice or ensemble, and its onboard tuner will help keep you in tune between songs. For a gutsy-sounding direct tone that gives you full control of your sound from the stage, Sweetwater guitarists are happy to recommend the Ovation Melissa Etheridge Signature acoustic guitar.

None Better

Let me start by saying that I am a 60-something year old lady who has been playing the guitar for over 50 years. Furthermore, I work as a Therapeutic Medical musician in hospitals and skilled nursing facilities so play instruments at least five days a week. I've owned a number of guitars over the years, mostly acoustic. So when I ordered this guitar sight unseen and unplayed, except for the description on the web page, I was expecting a nice, above average sounding and pretty guitar. What I got, however, was an incredibly tooled and rich sounding instrument. I am simply astounded at the feel and sound of this Ovation. The low action on the fret board is so good it lends itself beautifully to fingerpicking with all the hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides that go into it. I think this is accomplished by raising the fret bars just a bit above normal but not anymore that would interfere with the playing. As for tone, it has such a rich and mellow sound that any balladeer would love this guitar. That goes for folk players as well. As for looks, this guitar really is beautiful. Personally, I love the pearlessence finish, but when you combine it with the gold tones of the frets on the neck and the pearl tuning gears, it's a knock-out. I gave this guitar a 5 star rating but if I could have gone higher I would have. "She" is already my favorite!
