Ovation 1771VL-1 SB Pro Balladeer Mid-Depth Acoustic Electric Guitar
Ovation 1771VL-1 Pro Balladeer Sunburst Acoustic Electric Guitar
Ovation gets back to its roots with the Standard Balladeer VL. At the heart of this retro-style guitar is Ovation’s “Vintage Lyrachord®” Roundback®, made from the same materials used on early Ovations from the 60’s and 70’s. Interwoven layers of glass filaments are bound together by hybrid resins to create a lightweight and sonically resonate body that enhances Ovation’s signature note-to-note balance and projection.
The VL series, “Vintage Lyrachord®”, brings the tone of Ovations historical light weight bodies of the 60’s and 70’s back to the modern day player. With a thinner neck and a contemporary version of the classic stereo FET preamp, this acoustic series offers today’s player the vintage ovation sound that put the legendary brand on the map.
