Ovation's Applause AE-128 is a shallow bowl, single cutaway acoustic/electric guitar with Ovation's top notch OP4B pre-amp and transducer pick up. The warm acoustic guitar tones are combined with the pre-amp electronics to create the signature Ovation sound.

Ovation's shallow bowl single cut-away acoustic body is much thinner than other acoustic/electric guitars. For guitar players looking for a smaller body the AE-128's light weight and comfortable single cutaway are perfect. The thinner shallow bowl also reduces feedback during live performances, while the Ovation OP4B pre amp is great for recording. Cadillac Green Burst finish, case not included.

Why the round back?
When Charlie Kaman set about to build a better guitar 35 years ago, he had no preconceived notions about instrument design. After much analysis and experimentation, a parabolic "bowl" shape proved to give the best projection, volume and tone. Ovation gained its fame with its round back and today makes roundbacks in 3 body sizes - super shallow, mid-depth, and deep. Whichever one you choose, you'll get clear projection and rich, full tone.

A guitar with technology
No other maker has applied Ovation's level of technology to instrument design. Using extremely sophisticated equipment and Kaman's aerospace research resources, they've been able to determine precisely which specifications affect which part of the guitar's tonal spectrum.

Pioneers of the plug
Nowadays, purely acoustic guitars are a rarity on stage. Over the last two-and-a-half decades, Ovation has maintained its acoustic/electric leadership position. Today, more than 95% of all Ovations sold around the world are acoustic / electrics and offer systems to suit almost any particular taste and application.

    Comments about Ovation Applause AE-128CGB Acoustic Electric Guitar:

    the guitar arrived in excellent condition and in the time frame they said it would. i'm just learning to play so this guitar is used daily for my practice sessions and in the classroom, I love the sound of this instrument, full, without distortion (unless i make a mistake) i especially like the pre-amp feature, i'm sure it will even more appreciated when i get to the point where i'm actually playing songs.
    about the only thing i have an issue with is the tendency for the guitar to slide off my leg when i'm sitting. i have to use a small piece of rubber to keep it where i want it. overall this is an excellent guitar to start out on and it has everything that you need to join in on any jam session. great guitar

      Comments about Ovation Applause AE-128CGB Acoustic Electric Guitar:

      I walked into a store today to maybe find something my son would be interested in. Happen to see this sitting in the corner, i played it first before handing it off. Long story short, I have never played any instrument this well built for this price. Doesn't matter if you have played 2 months or 20 yrs. Great feel, great sound, very well built. I would put down more great things, but i only picked it up this afternoon!! Probably will be buying my son one as well. What a steal!
