Be Part of The Elite
The new Ovation Custom Elite AX is lighter, louder, richer and fuller - all the things you want your guitar to be…and it’s a better bargain than ever! Featuring a premium soundboard made from hand-selected AAA solid-spruce top matched with LX scalloped bracing, the Custom Elite responds evenly from the lightest touch to hard grinding power chords.

Ovation’s pioneering multi-soundhole design enhances string vibration and sustain by improving soundboard efficiency. A cutaway offers full access to the gloss-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck.

A Contour composite body maximizes acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. This guitar also boasts hand-inlaid abalone appointments, a deluxe grade ebony fretboard and bridge, and upper-bout soundholes decorated with exotic hardwoods.

With its onboard compressor, the OP-Pro Studio preamp enhances strummed chords, fingerpicked arpeggios, and single-note solos. Dual XLR and ¼” output jacks connect the Custom Elite to virtually any sound system, stage amp, or recording console.

Contour Bowl
Made from glass-microsphere impregnated Lyrachord composite, Ovation’s Contour Bowl is designed to provide maximum acoustic response with the feel of a small-body instrument. Sculpted to fit the contour of the player’s anatomy, the lightweight Lyrachord GS body is a joy to hold, whether sitting or standing. A Contour Bowl body has the acoustic projection, midrange punch, and huge bottom end of a traditional jumbo-style instrument, yet offers the playing comfort of Ovation’s Super-Shallow body. With its tough-as-nails construction, this body shape represents the latest evolution of Ovation’s pioneering roundback design.


OP-Pro Studio Preamp with 1/4" and XLR
The OP-Pro Studio with XLR combines state-of-the-art audio quality with exclusive features designed to meet the needs of professional guitarists. The easy-to-operate unit offers 3-band EQ, exciter and compressor/limiter circuitry, and a chromatic tuner. Ovation’s exclusive Expressor and Drive sliders put dynamic control and harmonic enhancement at your fingertips, allowing you to precisely dial in the sustain and punch you need. The XLR jack provides a balanced line connection to mixers, recording consoles, and high-end acoustic amps. It also provides phantom power to the OP-Pro—an essential feature for touring professionals.
