Acoustic guitarists often opt for a lower tuning when they are trying to create a slightly darker vibe in their playing. Tuning down a half or a whole step can create a whole new sonic experience. The Ovation DS778TX Elite TX D scale guitar offers a unique playing experience. It’s not your standard baritone. Tuned a full step lower to D-G-C-F-A-D, this guitar will fit easily into any style of music. Just capo the 2nd fret and you’ve got a standard tuned acoustic. Take off the capo and you’ve got a whole new instrument.

The soundboard of the DS778TX is made from solid spruce with scalloped ‘X’ bracing. The lightweight textured black finish on the soundboard gives off a dark, ominous vibe befitting of this low-tuned guitar. A cutaway on the lower bout offers access to the upper register notes and will satisfy the demands of today’s player who want to maximize their soloing capacities.

The Lyrachord composite Mid-Depth Contour Bowl project the acoustic tone perfectly. A Rock Maple neck features a 28-1/3" Scale to accommodate the low-tuned set-up, along with a. rosewood fingerboard with a slim profile The extra length will provide the necessary tension to maximize the playability of a low-tuned guitar. Players will find the Mid-Depth Bowl design incredibly comfortable to hold. The hardware is rounded out by a set of Ovation tuners.

Other features of this guitar include a Rosewood bridge stained black to match the top, and a preamp with an Ovation OCP-1K pickup for easy sound control on stage with a perfect string-to-string balance, while pumping out a punchy tone with crystal clear highs. The OP-Pro Studio preamp offers control over the bass, midrange, and treble frequencies for great tonal flexibility. The on-board tuner is easy to use and helps you stay perfectly in-tune, even when using open or non-standard tunings. The preamp precisely amplifies each note. Ovation's exclusive Expressor and Drive sliders put dynamic control and harmonic enhancement at your fingertips, allowing you to dial in the precise amount of sustain and punch required by the music.

Amazing instrument that every guitarist needs to own! Sounds and plays better than most Martins and Taylors that I have seen that cost ten times as much. Wonderful tone across the frequency range, especially lower frequencies. Awesome for working with different keys and alternate tunings! You'll get a good stretch playing down by the nut too - with the extended scale length, the first few frets are farther apart than any of my other guitars. If you have tiny hands you might want to try before you buy. For practice, I don't bother to capo at the second fret, and just play it as if it was in standard tuning. Best-sounding fingerstyle blues guitar ever, and makes regular songs played this way sound more awesome too! This is now my go-to acoustic, and made me a big fan of Ovation! Get one, you will not regret it! #sweepstakes
