Ovation Elite with a Sweetwater Exclusive Finish

This addition to the Elite Series, the Ovation Elite Plus Contour, boasts a Sweetwater Exclusive Orange Burst Karelian finish. The AAA solid spruce top with hand-selected exotic veneer looks and sounds better than ever. Its signature rounded composite body and upgraded 5-piece mahogany/maple neck are lighter, richer, and more natural for a playing experience even more acoustic players will appreciate. Finally, the onboard Op-Pro Studio preamp features an onboard compressor in addition to its EQ section and tuner to smooth out chords, fingerpicked parts, and leads straight from the stage or direct into a recording medium.

Ovation Elite Plus Contour Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Striking and responsive AAA spruce/exotic wood top
  • Signature composite body is richer and lighter than ever
  • Op-Pro Studio preamp has onboard compression, EQ, and tuner for stage/studio convenience
Striking and responsive AAA spruce/exotic wood top

The Elite Plus Contour's solid spruce top provides excellent projection, balance, and focus to Ovation's upgraded Lyrachord body. And for a bold look that'll capture an audience's attention, a hand-selected exotic wood veneer gives the Elite Plus Contour the look of a custom instrument.

Signature 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 Elite Plus Contour from digging into the player's body during performances, and a cutaway provides easy access to higher frets for solos and lead work.

Op-Pro Studio preamp has onboard compression, EQ, and tuner for stage/studio convenience

The Elite Plus Contour's Op-Pro Studio preamp now includes an onboard compressor to smooth out playing dynamics. This helps to tame distracting jumps in level when plugged in direct. A three-band EQ section with mid-dip switch lets you sculpt a tone that's perfectly tailored to your voice or ensemble, and an onboard tuner will keep you in tune between songs. For a gutsy-sounding direct tone that gives you full tonal control of your guitar from the stage, Sweetwater guitarists recommend checking out the Ovation Elite Plus Contour.

Made to be Played!!

It's fairly quiet unplugged, but plugged in, it's awesome - which is what Ovations are all about! The tone, dynamics, and clarity really come through. Fingerpicking, strumming or laying down a lead, it performs well. The contoured bowl stays in place when sitting, unlike the round ones, which were always sliding down. It plays great, the feel of the neck is fantastic. Stunning looks too!!
