Able to produce a ton of volume, and yet also great for more subtle intimate performances.

With great value that makes it ideal for beginning and intermediate players, the Applause Balladeer AB2412 12-String Acoustic-Electric delivers lushly resounding 12-string tone with the effortless fingerboard ease essential to comfortable 12-string playability. It’s designed with all the essentials of the classic Ovation Balladeer sound and style, including the sculpted Applause-style headstock and center soundhole adorned with the classic Applause chevron rosette pattern.

Premium features include a laminated spruce top for balanced and nuanced tone, and a mid-depth Roundback Lyrachord body for greater volume and projection, excellent balance and supreme durability. The guitar also features fast, comfortable action and a comfortable neck profile and an Ovation OP-4BT pickup/preamp system with built-in tuner for superior amplified tone and performance. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Applause Balladeer 12-String Mid Depth Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I ordered this guitar and it was back ordered for 60 days but I am sure glad that I waited. I already owned a Ovation six string and was very surprised to find the action on the 12 was better than on the six string. The plugged in sound is nothing less than incredible. Anyone that wants 12 string in this price range ,this is it.
