A Live Performer at an Affordable Price
With its flame maple veneer and ivory body binding, the Applause AB24IIP Balladeer Plus acoustic-electric guitar combines elite looks with an affordable price tag. The mid-depth cutaway body style delivers impressive projection, and the satin finish on the neck creates an amazingly smooth playing feel. You're ready to plug in and perform thanks to the built-in CE304T pickup system with 3-band EQ and built-in tuner. Complete with die-cast sealed tuners, there's big value in the Applause AB24IIP Balladeer Plus.
This AB24IIP Balladeer Plus is crafted with the same mid-depth Lyrachord bowl-shaped body that has been the calling card of the brand for decades. This build style delivers a very balanced sound with enhanced volume and is impervious to environmental changes. This makes it a great option for live performance.
Ovation's CE304T pickup/preamp system
The live tone of the AB24IIP Balladeer Plus comes courtesy of Applause's CE304T pickup/preamp system. This side-mounted setup sends a natural-sounding tone to your onstage amplifier or PA system. Three sliders define your tone's bass, middle, and treble frequencies, while an intuitive gain knob increases the guitar's output. You'll also find a convenient tuner built right into the system. Whether strumming acoustically or getting ready for the gig, the AB24IIP Balladeer Plus is ready.
High-end appointments at an affordable price
This guitar carries many of the features of Ovation's top-of-the-line instruments. The neck is carved to offer comfortable and fast playability, and the onboard Applause electronics are the same as those found in higher-end models. The AB24IIP boasts the flagship mid-depth Lyrachord body construction, which generates impressive projection and balanced tonality. All these appointments belie this guitar's astoundingly affordable price point. Pick one up from Sweetwater as a starter or a backup. You won't regret it.
