With an impressive presence and awesome tone plugged in or not, the Ovation 2079AX-5T Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar is sure to please any guitarist.

Whether you're at a gig or playing it in the comfort of your own home, the Ovation Legend offers premium tone and maximum comfort. Delivering a very natural acoustic sound, the AA solid spruce top and LX Scalloped bracing work hand in hand to produce rich tones with impressive volume. Ovation guitars are known for their Lyrachord contour body, which makes playing extremely comfortable and fun. Complete with Ovation's OP-Pro preamp and OCP-1K crystal piezo pickup, the gigging guitarist can go to that next gig with confidence.

Brilliant Tone Through Bracing
Ovation's unique scalloped bracing lets the solid spruce top vibrate more freely resulting in lavish tones. A venetian cutaway offers complete access to a 5-piece mahogany/maple neck. The dark ebony fretboard with abalone dot and diamond inlays matches the ebony bridge perfectly. The rosette sound hole has a gorgeous abalone oak leaf design giving great contrast to the AA top which is complete with a glossy, Trans Black finish.

Traditional Design for Maximum Comfort
Identified by their Lyrachord bodies, the Ovation Legend provides plenty of comfort whether you're standing in front of 1000 fans with the lights on you or you are relaxing on the couch jamming alone to your favorite tunes. The deep contour cutaway lets you access the higher frets with ease making quick runs possible.

Plug that Piezo In
The Ovation Legend alone is a wonderful guitar with plenty of great features but plug it in and the door of opportunities opens fully to explore a wide range of tonal qualities. The crystal-clear sounding piezo pickup delivers clarity and precision to each note and chord. Ovation's OP Pro Studio electronics combines advanced audio quality with the same, easy to use features that acoustic/electric players love. Easily shape your sound with a 3-band EQ and use the built in chromatic tuner for a quick tune up.
