An Ideal Choice for the Performing Guitarist

The Ovation Elite TX Super Shallow 6-string acoustic-electric guitar is a fine choice for performing guitarists who don't want to sacrifice tone quality for a stage-ready design. The Elite TX Super Shallow's solid spruce top incorporates Ovation's iconic soundhole pattern to give you clear low- and midrange punch. The guitar's Ovation OP Pro preamp features a chromatic tuner and a 3-band equalizer with "pre-shape" and "mid-shift" buttons. And the Ovation Elite TX Super Shallow's thinner construction enhances projection while greatly inhibiting feedback from loud stages.

Ovation Elite TX Super Shallow 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Super Shallow
  • Performance-based design
  • Powerful electronics
Super Shallow

The Lyrachord back bowl of the Ovation Elite TX Super Shallow was scientifically engineered to excel at performances on loud stages. Its slim dimensions are contoured in a way that optimally enhances the guitar's resonance and projection, whether played acoustically or plugged in. But the thin profile is also excellent at resisting the howling feedback that you can sometimes encounter in those situations. And the build of the Elite TX is comfortable to hold against your body during those marathon gigs.

Performance-based design

The Ovation Elite TX Super Shallow is built from the ground up to be your go-to gigging acoustic-electric guitar. The instrument's neck is built from hard rock maple, with a slim profile to feel immediately familiar to electric guitar players. Its narrower nut width keeps the string spacing closer together to facilitate easy chording. And the Super Shallow Lyrachord bowl helps the guitar hug your body tightly for easy access to the strings and fretboard. If you're looking for a performing acoustic at Sweetwater, the Ovation is an excellent option.

Powerful electronics

Ovation Guitars were one of the first companies to offer an acoustic-electric 6-string guitar aimed at performance. And because they've been doing it for so long, they know a thing or two about getting optimal plugged-in tone. The Ovation OP-Pro preamp and OCP-1K under-saddle pickup in the Elite TX Super Shallow work together to let you dial in the exact sound you're looking for in a live environment. The 3-band EQ is complemented by controls that offer enhanced harmonics and compression. And the onboard tuner ensures your tuning remains stable all night.

Ovation Elite TX Super Shallow Features at a Glance:
  • 6-string acoustic-electric guitar
  • Super Shallow depth reduces feedback
  • Solid spruce top adds clarity and projection
  • Bass-side Ovation soundholes
  • Ovation OP Pro preamp with tuner, 3-band EQ, and Exciter circuit
  • Lyrachord body enhances the guitar's resonance
The Ovation Elite TX Super Shallow is a great tool for the performing guitarist.

Big Creamsicle!

A really nice guitar! This one sounds great plugged in, and surprisingly has great projection unplugged when considering the super shallow bowl. The satin neck is as slick and fast as they get...a little too slick until I got used to it. The build quality and finish is outstanding and compares to Adamas guitars costing five times as much...and yes I love the color! As always, the service from Sweetwater was outstanding! Shaka was very helpful finding models with the Ovation preamp and body style I wanted. Thanks again Shaka! If you're on the fence about getting one, don't hesitate...it's a great guitar from a company with great service!

Love this guitar!

The maple neck on this guitar is super fast and great if you play solos. Despite the shallow body and sound holes only being on one side, it still sounds like an Ovation should and is much more comfortable than larger Ovations. Also, the reddish orange color in the picture is inaccurate; it's more akin to Fender's "capri orange". Absolutely stunning in person. Great price and Sweetwater has unparalleled customer service.

A beautiful guitar

This guitar is a real attention getter. Looks even better in person than in the photos. It arrived all set up and ready to play. Plugging it in gives you a wide range of possibilities. The guitar tech I spoke to says Ovations are very easy to adjust if needed.


Plays and sounds great,acoustically or plugged in... But,,,, it is not nicer looking in person....the photo shows it as very BRIGHT in color, it IS NOT as bright as the photos make it,not even close,,, think of it as a dreamsicle ice cream bar, not this bright orange
