Ovation Al Dimeloa Black 1769-ADII5
Legendary jazz guitarist Al Di Meola partnered with Ovation’s R&D team to design every aspect of his signature instrument. Handcrafted in Ovation’s flagship workshop in New Hartford, Connecticut, the Al Di Meola Signature features a premium AAA solid-spruce top with A-bracing. The Deep Bowl composite body delivers rich, powerful tones and maximum acoustic output. A cutaway offers full access to the custom low-profile, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck. The traditional center soundhole has a gorgeous laser-cut oak-leaf and abalone rosette. The Al Di Meola Signature includes Ovation’s high output pickup and its OP-Pro preamp features a special +4 dB volume-boost switch.
Ovation’s Deep Bowl body generates maximum unamplified volume and enormous low end, yet it’s easier to hold and play then a traditional jumbo-body guitar. Models sporting Deep Bowl bodies also perform impressively when plugged in, thanks to Ovation’s advanced onboard electronics. A “sonic cannon” that shines either unplugged or through a sound system or stage amp, a Deep Bowl Ovation offers the best of both electric and acoustic worlds.
Designed in collaboration with jazz guitarist Al Di Meola and acoustic rocker Melissa Etheridge, the OP-Pro combines state-of-the-art audio quality with exclusive features designed to meet the needs of professional guitarists. The easy-to-operate unit offers 3-band EQ, a preset tone enhancement circuit, a battery status light, and a chromatic tuner. The OP-Pro will please even the most discriminating player.
