Great Tone, Plugged In or Not

The Ovation Custom Legend AX acoustic-electric guitar sounds and plays fantastic, whether you're at home enjoying its acoustic tone or plugged in onstage. In addition to Ovation's distinctive contour Lyrachord body, you get a premium solid AAA spruce top that delivers a very lively acoustic sound. Appointments include elegant abalone dot and diamond inlays, as well as a classy soundhole rosette. And the Custom Legend AX's onboard OP Pro Studio preamp and Ovation OCP-1 pickup system allow you to take the stage with confidence.

AAA solid spruce top

The Ovation Custom Legend AX features a AAA solid spruce top that delivers rich, traditional tone, while Ovation's innovative scalloped X-bracing lets the top vibrate more freely than traditionally constructed acoustic guitars. The result is exceptional playing comfort and rich, natural acoustic sound — with impressive volume. Sweetwater's performing guitarists love this axe for its excellent tone and playing comfort — the gloss-finished AAA top also happens to look amazing under stage lights!

Ovation's Lyrachord contour body

As an evolution of Ovation's famous roundback design, the contour bowl gives you amazingly robust acoustic response — with the feel of a small-bodied guitar. Fashioned from a glass-microsphere-impregnated Lyrachord composite and sculpted to fit you like a glove, the lightweight Lyrachord Deep Contour Cutaway body is delightful to hold, whether you're sitting or standing. It may be compact, but Ovation's contour bowl body boasts the acoustic projection power, midrange punch, and massive low end of a traditional jumbo-style acoustic guitar.

OP-Pro Studio electronics

Ovation's OP-Pro Studio combines state-of-the-art audio quality with guitarist-friendly features. The OP-Pro Studio lets you shape your sound with 3-band EQ, limiting/compression and exciter circuitry, and a chromatic tuner. The Expressor and Drive sliders put dynamic control and harmonic enhancement right at your fingertips, so you can easily dial in the perfect amount of punch and sustain. A thoroughly professional system, OP-Pro Studio is equipped with an XLR jack for balanced line-level connection to mixers, consoles, and high-end acoustic amps.

  • AAA solid spruce top delivers rich, traditional tone
