Ovation 2078KK-5S Kaki King Signature
When two-hand-tapping virtuoso Kaki King puts her name on a guitar, you know it has to be durable. The Ovation Kaki King Signature acoustic-electric guitar features a Deep Contour Lyrachord composite body to stand up to Kaki's percussive slapping, a five-piece mahogany/maple neck to resist snapping and warping, and a AAA solid spruce top to bring out the complex overtones and harmonics of Kaki's playing. Kaki's personal touches include white soundhole epaulets and a lone 12th-fret crown fingerboard inlay. The onboard Ovation OCP-1K pickup and Op-Pro Studio preamp give the Ovation Kaki King Signature guitar a natural and dynamic direct tone, with a powerful EQ section to take control of chord and lead tones straight from the stage.
Ovation Kaki King Signature Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
• Striking and responsive AAA spruce top
• Lyrachord composite body is richer and lighter than ever
• Ovation OCP-1K pickup and Op-Pro Studio preamp inspire natural and dynamic performances
Striking and responsive AAA spruce top
The Kaki King Signature's solid spruce top brings excellent projection, balance, and focus to Ovation's Deep Contour Lyrachord body, which is built from a tough composite to resist cracking. Kaki's choice of a satin black top and white soundhole epaulets give this guitar a stage look that's as bold as its sound.
Lyrachord 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 Kaki King Signature from digging into the player's body during performances, and a cutaway provides easy access to higher frets for solos and lead work.
Ovation OCP-1K pickup and Op-Pro Studio preamp inspire natural and dynamic performances
The Kaki King Signature guitar is outfitted with Ovation's flagship OCP-1K pickup and Op-Pro Studio preamp.
