The guitar s Contour composite body maximizes acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. A cutaway offers full access to the gloss-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck. The Custom Legend AX guitar also boasts a deluxe grade ebony fretboard and bridge, and hand-set abalone body and fretboard inlays. The traditional center soundhole has a gorgeous laser-cut oak-leaf and abalone rosette. With its onboard compressor, the OP-Pro Studio preamp enhances strummed chords, fingerpicked arpeggios, and single-note solos. Dual XLR and output jacks connect the Custom Legend to virtually any sound system, stage amp, or recording console.
History: Founder the Ovation Guitar Charles Kaman (1919–2011) developed the first prototypes of the Ovation guitar in 1965–1966. The first prototype had a conventional “dreadnought” body, with a parallel front and back perpendicular to the sides. By mid-1966, according to Ovation, they realized that the parabolic shape produced a desirable tone with greater volume than the conventional dreadnought.
