Overview

Solid spruce top, comfortable body shape and high-performance electronics.

This is where Ovation artistry runs deep. The Elite Series builds upon our philosophy of constructing unique instruments for visionary players. With their striking silhouettes and understated finishes, the Elite Series guitars make a statement that’s all their own: You’re here to shift the musical landscape. You are here to inspire.

This 1868TX Elite features both of Ovation’s Super Shallow and Mid-Depth Bowl, which are ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. A deluxe AA solid-spruce top and Ovation’s legendary lightweight, yet high-strength bracing, give this guitar tremendous sonic power. An ultra-thin finish allows the soundboard to resonate freely, and soundports on the bass-string side of Ovation’s sculpted cutaway composite body enhance lower-frequency projection.

Shaped to offer the fast feel of an electric guitar, the slim, hard-rock maple neck delivers superior sustain, while the OP-Pro preamp and OCP-1K pickup produce uncompromising plugged-in performance.

Case sold separately.
