Product Description

The new Ovation Custom Legend AX features a hand-selected, premium AAA grade solid-spruce top with LX scalloped bracing. This combiniation of premium soundboard materials and sonically tuned bracing produces more volume and less dead spots in the audio spectrum. Every note is clear and balanced - no matter where you play on the fingerboard.

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 also guitar boasts an deluxe grade ebony fretboard and bridge, and hand-set abalone body and fretboard inlays. The traditional center sound-hole 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 1/4-inch output jacks connect the Custom Legend 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 with 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.

Ovation Custom Legend

Painstakingly crafted from the finest materials and offering outstanding sound, guitars in the Custom Legend series represent the ultimate in the Ovation model line. Custom Legend instruments are among the most responsive on the market today, thanks to the unrivaled flexibility of their soundboards. Custom Legend models feature Ovation's pioneering Mid-Depth, Deep Bowl, or Contour Bowl composite bodies, and sport no fewer than 300 individual pieces of the finest abalone, which experienced artisans inlay by hand to create unique designs. With its gorgeous sound and striking looks, the Custom Legend is a testimony to the extraordinary skill of Ovation's luthiers.

4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very nice for the price"
Overall: I have 3 acoustic guitars and they are in this price range, a Guild, a Bedell Parlor and this Ovation. This guitar has binding, the contour body is fairly comfortable and deosnt slip away as much as the standard deep bowl.The guitar sounds fine, is a little stiff in playability right out of the case but seems to be breaking in very quickly.No flaws or blemishes it appears to offer fine value at this price.The electronics sounds very good, there is an onboard tuner and compresser also which fattens the sound and can be adjusted.The intonation is spot on, I checked by ear but it sounded fine.The tuner is very convenient, just bring a cord and a phase shifter along with you to the gig and you should be just fine.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Ovation and ZZounds"
Overall: I have played music for many years as well as taught music and music theory. Although I play a lot of fiddle these days as well as other instruments. When I pick up my guitar to sing a song or play a lead I want something that I can depend on! Up to this point I have used a number of guitars and never cheap ones and mainly acoustic/electric. I have never been completely happy with any of the ones I've used in the past. I purchased an Ovation Custom Legend not long ago from ZZounds. I relied on what I read about them in the write up at ZZounds and am not disappointed! The electronics in this guitar, in my opinion, rates second to none. It's everything and more than I expected. I highly recommend ZZounds - Their service is also second to none! They are courteous and offer a money back guarantee and when the guitar arrived it was very well packed and the shipping was quicker than expected. Thanks to ZZounds for an honest review and a great product and fast courteous service! A very satisfied customer who highly recommends ZZounds!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
