The USA made Elite T Series is designed as an alternative to the traditional Ovation Elite series. Shedding the classic multi-piece hardwood epaulet sound hold decorations, this model incorporates a simpler, untrimmed, 11-hole pattern that enhances the low and mid range punch. The rock maple neck profile has also been slimmed down to give it a look and feel more appealing to electric players. An ultra light, yet incredibly durable, textured enamel finish is wrapped around the entire back and top.

The Elite T is outfitted with the new Ovation OP-30 preamp featuring 3-band EQ, pre-shape and mid-shift buttons, and a full on-board chromatic tuner. Case not included.

Rich, bright and super quiet, the OP30 raises the bar in its class. Three bands of eq plus the ability to shift the mid band to either a 450Hz or 970Hz gives you complete control over your sound. There's also a Pre-Shape circuit that not only lifts the bass and treble, but also reduces "rumble" from frequencies below 40Hz. And of course there's an on-board chromatic tuner.

    Comments about Ovation 1778T5 Elite T Series Acoustic Electric Guitar (Black Textured):

    If you are looking for a professional grade acoustic/electric that can be had for under a grand you must check this guitar out. It looks radical yet understated. The sound is very deep and warm, much like a jumbo body Gibson at 4 times the price. Technicaly this is an unusual Ovation because it has most of the LX upgrades while retaining ovations signature qintad braceing. The highend elites with the full LX upgrade feature classic scalloped X braceing. Interestingly the less expensive elite t has a far superior unplugged sound. Other guitars that sound this good are at least twice the price.
