OVERVIEW

Legendary vibe bumped way up with a host of improvements!

The Ovation 1777 LX Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar has outstanding action, playability and sound. In response to popular demand, Ovation has re-created the original warm-toned 1968 pickup and the OP-Pro preamp. Combined with new scalloped X-bracing on the AA-grade solid Sitka spruce top, this produces a rounder, more wide-open tone. A new 5-piece lightweight neck with dual-function truss rod is topped with a genuine ebony fretboard. Dual clamp heel and graphite neck stabilizers make the 1777 LX Legend the most stable Ovation ever. New Lyrachord back material formula is 33% lighter.

FEATURES
  • Solid AA-grade Sitka spruce top
  • Scalloped X bracing pattern
  • Ebony fingerboard
  • Lightweight 5-piece advanced neck
  • Dual-action truss rod
  • Graphite neck stabilizers over the joint
  • Dual-clamp heel block
  • Original 1968 Ovation pickup
  • OP-Pro preamp
  • 33% lighter Lyrachord GS bowl

I bought this guitar new from the friend, and I love it. Plugged in, nothing else compares. I was very impressed with the top. The spruse top is just as nice as Martins D-28 tops and just as nice as the Taylors it the $2,000 dollar range. I named her goldy. acousticly, very impressive for ovation. about as loud acousticly as a D-28, but not as loud as an HD-28. I've had this guitar about a year now, and I can tell a difference allready! Unbelieveable! my top has already turned a shade darker. With a wood this nice, It does get better every year! Great work Ovation! Action, fit and finish is outstanding and the tone is bright and punchy. electronicly, this guitar CAN NOT be beat. Not even by Taylor's expression system. My only complaint is on the case, ovation used to make much nicer cases. This does not, however, afect any rating on the guitar inself. If you are an ovation fan, this guitar is a must have, lifetime companion. I will also add, this is a guitar you can count on night after night.

My new best friend

Comments about Ovation 1777 LX Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a incredible instrument. It is the best Ovation I've ever played. Action, was a bit high but ovation made it very easy to adjust with spacers under the saddle. Plugged in, this guitar is untouchable. The quality of the AA top is a lot more than I expected. Just as good a top as I've seen on the Martin D-28. Contoured bowl, great touch. Tusk nut. Unplugged, I put 13's on it and It's louder than a D-28. I'm not pulling your leg. You won't regret buying this baby. Get one before the price shoots up.

Outstanding Instruent

Comments about Ovation 1777 LX Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've always been disappointed in the sound quality of an Ovation when not plugged in. But the LX 1777 rivals pretty much any all wood guitar I have ever played, including my favorite Taylor. It looks as good as it sounds.

Ovation Legend 1777LX

By ratlifk1-4ml9g

from Columbus, Ohio

Comments about Ovation 1777 LX Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I recently went to Guitar Center not looking to buy a guitar but just browsing around, I don't typically pick up a guitar unless it's a Martin because that's what I own and play in church. I saw a used Ovation sitting on a stand that was very dirty, the action was very high and it had a dent in the top. I picked it up and couldn't believe how it sounded unplugged. It didn't come with a case. I took it up to the counter and bought it, wrapped it in a blanket and took it straight to my local guitar tech. They do all my set-ups for my Martin. They filled the dent with the same clear appoxy Ovation uses, reset the neck/action and cleaned it up. I'm not kidding, it looks brand new and plays like a dream. I ordered a case from Ovation and couldn't be happier.

Comments about Ovation 1777 LX Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Personally i'm not really an ovation fan, but ever since i used this guitar it kinda made me rethink about ovations. The sound is pretty deep and clean. The action is at perfect height. The hardware on it has quick response. The only thing i can sort of complain about is its weight. That guitar is pretty heavy. Overall this guitar is like the only ovation i would consider buying. With the same money you could get a taylor that sounds a bit better than this with better electronics that the ovation.

Comments about Ovation 1777 LX Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The 1777LX sounds great. It has a strong voice plugged or unplugged. I was going to purchase a Taylor 414ce. I put it side by side with this guitar and I was impressed with the Ovation. They sounded pretty close unplugged but what sold me was the OP-Pro. Not to mention the price difference. I'm very happy with my Ovation and I had some money left over to buy myself a 12-string along with this guitar.

Comments about Ovation 1777 LX Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I had two 2 ovations back in the 1970s and loved them. Like everyone else I got caught up in the Martin Taylor debate over the best guitar. I recently purchased the 1777 LX and I am very impressed. What a great guitar and what a savings over the high priced guys.
