The new line of Applause guitars showcases Ovation’s forward thinking while retaining the high standard of performance expected from a quality instrument. The new Applause Elite® models include traditional Ovation appointments such as a spruce top, Scalloped-X bracing, and laser cut multi-sound holes. A sleeker headstock design creates an aesthetic that many others aspire to. An Ovangkol fingerboard/bridge and mid-depth bowl allow for effortless and comfortable playing. To tie everything together, they’ve also updated the electronics to the new CE304T preamp. Paired with an Ovation slimline pickup, you won’t believe your ears when you hear the incredible voice and clarity found within this guitar.
