One of the most distinctive Roundbacks ever!
Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx presents his signature Ovation guitar inspired by his new book "The Heroin Diaries" and his new band "Sixx:A.M." The Heroin Diaries is at once an inside look at life on the road with one of rock's most notoriously hard-partying groups and a harrowing tale of the descent into drug addiction that nearly spelled the end of Nikki and the band. This personal expose of rock culture at the edge is at once profoundly disturbing and utterly gripping.
This Limited Edition Ovation/Nikki Sixx "Heroin Diaries" Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a spruce top covered in astounding graphics by world-renowned artist PR Brown. The top is married to a super shallow body for excellent sonic balance and projection. The NS28-HD also includes many other distinctive Ovation features such as a thin profile neck, vibration sensitive Slimline pickup, and the OP4BT preamp with a built-in tuner. One fourth of Sixx's royalties from the guitar will be donated to Running Wild In The Night, a charity Sixx established in conjunction with Covenant House to provide a sanctuary for homeless and runaway youth from the streets.
Ovation's Slimline pickup captures the guitar's pure acoustic tone and delivers it with a powerful signal that has ample headroom to combat feedback in high-volume conditions. The OP4BT preamp offers +/-12dB control over the bass, midrange, and treble frequencies for great tonal flexibility. Its onboard tuner is easy to use and helps you stay perfectly in-tune, even when using open or non-standard tunings. The OP4BT preamp has a gain knob, a battery LED, plus bass, mid and treble EQ sliders. The warm acoustic guitar tones are combined with the pre-amp electronics to create the signature Ovation sound.
The super shallow bowl provides a full sonic presence while reducing feedback during live performances, while the Ovation OP4BT preamp is ideal for both gigs and studio recording. All, an exceptional guitar with killer looks.
