Ovation 1771VL-1 GC Signature Legend Collection Glen Campbell 6-String RH Acoustic Electric Guitar with Gigbag-Mid Depth Sunburst
Ovation's 1771VL1GC Glen Campbell Signature Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar model features the shallow "Vintage Style Lyrachord" body used on early Ovations from the '60s and '70s.
The shallow body provides strong midrange punch and cuts through the mix with clarity and articulation, while the sunburst finish, AAA Sitka spruce top and durable, composite, round back construction combine to offer a sonic experience ideal for stage and studio alike. Outstanding string-to-string balance is the hallmark of original Ovation designs and the slim profile makes this a comfortable guitar. A contemporary version of the perfectly placed, retro single knob, volume and tone controls make this guitar a stage workhorse. Gig bag included.
The shallow body is designed to provide plenty of cut to overcome other instruments in the mix. You get a little less bass, a strong mid-range, and bright high-end which helps every note stand out in an arrangement. Ovation's "shallow bowl" design combines durable Lyrachord composite construction with a meticulously engineered round-back design to deliver a richly rewarding acoustic experience ideal for stage and studio alike. The 1771VL features a cutaway, and its shallow bowl is extremely durable and maintains the outstanding string-to-string balance of original Ovation designs. This diminutive depth provides extraordinary playing comfort ideally suited to smaller players and those who prefer a slim-profile instrument.
Designed to reduce hum and line noise, the FET preamp delivers stunning stereo output, and waist-mounted individual volume and tone controls are quick and easy to adjust while performing. A contemporary version of the electronics that launched the Adams acoustic/electric line in 1979, the FET preamp is an Ovation classic.
