Superb style and grace from the masters of plug-and-play acoustics.

The Ovation Standard Elite 6868 AX Acoustic Guitar opens the door to the world of the big Ovation sound without sacrificing any of the essential, unique features. With carefully chosen solid Spruce tops, inlaid epaulets, die-cast chrome tuning machines, and satin finish neck, the Standard Elite sets a new standard for Ovation at the mid-price level.

This Ovation Standard Elite Guitar features a super-shallow cutaway bowl, the famous multi-sound hole technology, and modified bracing to maximize acoustic response. This acoustic-electric crossover starts with a solid spruce top for full-balanced tone and a natural beauty. Scalloped X-bracing offers a fine tune for the instrument's tone. The rosewood fretboard and bridge add crisp, clear sustain to the guitar, so those notes can ring out long and true. The rosette features an inlaid mixture of exotic woods that benefits the tone and will pique the interest of your crowd, appreciating this Ovation guitar's inlaid beauty. Chrome tuning machines, pearl-dot diamond inlays and a satin burst finish dresses the guitar in beauty. At the heart of the Standard Elite 6868 AX lies the impressive OP-PRO preamp system that has made Ovation a household name. Designed in collaboration with Al DiMeola and Melissa Etheridge, the OP-PRO combines state-of-the-art audio quality with guitarist-friendly features for a preamp that should please even the most discriminating player.

Nowadays, purely acoustic guitars are a rarity on stage. Over the last few decades, Ovation has maintained a steady legacy of quality in the acoustic-electric realm. Interesting to note that today, more than 95% of all Ovations sold around the world are acoustic electrics.

Best Ovation (or Guitar) I've owned or played, Neck has low action and chords great, smooth frets, The pre-amp has amazing sound. Great guitar, its not to loud to practice in the house with, and doesn't disturb others, yet Great booming sound plugged in. This is the last Acoustic/Electric I will buy. Its a Keeper.

Comments about Ovation Standard Elite 6868 AX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is the lowest priced electric-acoustic guitar I own but it is a very good value for the money. Would be easy for players to transition from electric to acoustic with this guitar. It is easy to get a tone that sits well in the mix playing in a band. Stays in tune well as you move up high on the neck. Ovation makes it easy to change the action to suit your playing style with removable shims under the bridge.
