The Ovation 1777 LX Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar has outstanding action, playability and sound. This is the latest in the line of roundback Ovation guitars. The Ovation 1777 LX Legend Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a AA grade spruce top, mid depth body, scalloped LX bracing, 5 piece neck, bound ebony fingerboard, gold ping tuners, ebony bridge, original patented pickup, OP-Pro preamp with tuner, and straplock strap buttons. This Ovation features a couple of features which really help it to sound great. One is the scalloped bracing what allows the top to sing. The guitar has lots of volume with a deep wonderful tone. The other is the new bowl design. The bowl uses glass microsphere technology to increase projection and strength while reducing weight. The finish of Ovation 1777 LX Legend is flawless, the rosette is beautiful and it has some of the best fret work. A new 5-piece lightweight neck with dual-function truss rod is topped with a genuine ebony fretboard. Dual clamp heel and graphite neck stabilizers make it the most stable Ovation ever.
