Ovation 1771VL -1 Acoustic/Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Vintage Lyrachord celebrates Ovation's history
  • Stereo FET preamp actively fights hum and noise
  • The perfect acoustic when you need to plug in
Vintage Lyrachord series celebrates Ovation's history

When you pick up a vintage Ovation guitar built back in the '60s or '70s, the first thing you notice is its lightweight back and comfortably slim neck carve. That's exactly what Ovation set out to re-create with their Vintage Lyrachord series. That's why the 1771VL -1 features a body made from the same interwoven glass and hybrid resin as those original Ovation models. Not only is the 1771VL -1 even lighter than Ovation's standard models, it also sports a thinner and faster neck carve that's incredibly fun to play.

Stereo FET preamp actively fights hum and noise

Few acoustic guitars can compete with the Ovation 1771VL -1 when it comes to fighting hum and noise. That's because the 1771VL -1 features Ovation's ultra-quiet Stereo FET preamplifier. Not only does this preamp give you stunning stereo output with virtually no noise or hum, but its FET-based electronics deliver smooth and extremely warm overtones. In fact, these are an upgraded version of the same electronics that launched the acclaimed Adamas acoustic-electric line back in 1979, making the 1771VL -1 a true Ovation modern classic.

The perfect acoustic when you need to plug in

If you're plugging in onstage, then the 1771VL -1 is the acoustic you want to be playing. Not only does its preamp all but eliminate hum and buzz, but the Standard Balladeer VL's extra mid-depth body provides a remarkably well-balanced tone that's naturally resistant to feedback.

Ovation 1771VL -1 Acoustic/Electric Guitar Features:
  • An acoustic-electric guitar that's perfect for plugging in onstage
  • Solid spruce top with scalloped X bracing and center-cut soundhole provide excellent projection
  • Body made from the same interwoven glass and hybrid resin as the original Ovations of the '60s and '70s
