    Neat lookin' guitar

    [​IMG]
    This Elite TX 12-string features Ovation’s Contour Bowl composite body, which maximizes acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. A deluxe AA solid-spruce top and Ovation’s legendary lightweight, yet high-strength bracing give this guitar tremendous sonic power. An ultra-thin textured enamel black finish allows the soundboard to resonate freely, and soundports on the bass-string side of Ovation’s sculpted cutaway composite body enhance lower-frequency projection. Shaped to offer the fast feel of an electric guitar, the slim, hard-rock maple neck delivers superior sustain, while the OP-Pro preamp and OCP-1K pickup produce uncompromising plugged-in performance.

    That bowl shaped back is a dead giveaway.

    I've plunked around with one or two at the local Guitar Center. Ovation makes some nice guitars.

    Indeed they do.

    When I was doing bluegrass, we used one large diaphragm mic and moved in and out depending on who was doing what. Those things sound great, but with no volume adjust, they can pickup your stomach growling.

    They make some nice stuff, my newest acoustic/electric is the six-string version of the Elite TX. Sounds is great, despite the unusual sound hole design.

    Round body takes a bit of getting used to.
