Ovation LT-60 Proto Limited Series

th

Look into the future of Ovation with the Proto Limited Series.

The U.S.-made Proto Limited LT-60 acoustic is the first in a series of small-run concept instruments unveiling new directions and perspectives in Ovation sound and style, and it presents outstanding new “Artistry Advanced” concepts in tone, materials, design and aesthetics.

So much is new: Stylized new Ovation “O” inlay work and the bold soundhole shape that mirrors it. The carved headstock shape—a modern take on the classic Ovation form. And in the ongoing Ovation tradition, luthiery still meets the laboratory with a special bracing pattern beneath the hand-selected Adirondack spruce top, a comfortable deep-contoured Lyrachord® body, and a fast asymmetrical mahogany neck. The result is remarkable playing feel and a wonderfully complex-yet clear voice with great warmth and character.

Beautiful design touches include a pommele sapele rosette with abalone inlay work; pommele sapele body binding, neck binding and headstock inset; black-white-black purfling; Ovation “O” headstock logo and 12th fret inlay in abalone with rosewood “shadow”; ebony bridge; and textured enamel body finish. For peerless amplified performance, the Ovation OP-Pro Studio onboard pickup/preamp system features three-band EQ, exciter and compressor/limiter circuitry, chromatic tuner, battery life indicator, and balanced XLR line output. Hardshell case included.

Contour Bowl

Made from glass-microsphere impregnated Lyrachord® composite, Ovation’s Contour Bowl is designed to provide maximum acoustic response with the feel of a small-body instrument. Sculpted to fit the contour of the player’s anatomy, the lightweight Lyrachord® GS body is a joy to hold, whether sitting or standing. A Contour Bowl body has the acoustic projection, midrange punch, and huge bottom end of a traditional jumbo-style instrument, yet offers the playing comfort of Ovation’s Super-Shallow body. With its tough-as-nails construction, this body shape represents the latest evolution of Ovation’s pioneering Roundback® design.

OP-Pro Studio with XLR

The OP-Pro Studio with XLR 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, exciter and compressor/limiter circuitry, and a chromatic tuner. Ovation’s exclusive Expressor and Drive sliders put dynamic control and harmonic enhancement at your fingertips, allowing you to precisely dial in the sustain and punch you need. The XLR jack provides a balanced line connection to mixers, recording consoles, and high-end acoustic amps. It also provides phantom power to the OP-Pro—an essential feature for touring professionals.
