A Super Guitar: Ovation 2078AXP-AF Elite Plus

Hubert-Paul, 15.07.2018
What a great guitar! I've been playing Ovation guitars, old US Custom Elite, Collectors from 1985 and 1987 for over 20 years. I've been thinking for a long time about buying a new US Custom Elite, though? 3500, -
I was not worth this model. I then had the opportunity to test an Elite Plus and was immediately impressed! Then I ordered this Ovation C2078AXP-AF Elite Plus from Thomann.
Kudos to Thomann, ordered on Saturday evening and already delivered on Monday, great!
The guitar is just great, visually an absolute eye-catcher, the Okume feather blanket looks even more beautiful in the original than in the photos. Everything is impeccable and immaculately processed!

An original Ovation case is also included. The factory setting is top and allows best playability. The sound is Ovation typical, silky and melodious, with very long sustain and nice overtones. The ceiling is made of AAA spruce with a thin veneer of Okume Feather, a kind of African mahogany. The whole thing with an ivory binding with abalone inserts, very nicely done. The mahogany neck, reinforced with 2 strips of maple and an ebony fingerboard, with excellently rounded frets! The neck setting rod can be adjusted from the inside, for this you can unscrew a lid on the back! An Allen key and a short manual are included.
The tuners are from Schaller, gold plated, with ebony handles and run butter soft.
The electronics consists of the proven OCP-1K pickup and the state often the kind OP-Pro-studio preamp with 3-band EQ, expressor fader, drive and volume poti, and built-in tuner.
The sound amplified with the preamp is just great, that's what I've been looking for for years. With the Drive control and the compressor fader you can achieve a very nice saturation and a crisp sound. That's right! And no feedback problem on the stage!

On the subject of hakeliger battery exchange in other reviews of Ovation guitars:
The preamp can be easily detached, you just have to know how: After pressing the left button you have to press the preamp on the right (thick) side a bit, then the left side rises slightly out of the frame and you can touch the preamp and take out, When reinserting you have to use the right side again first, so that the small "nose" dips into the frame. Then you push, without violence, with your hand the preamp slightly down until it clicks into place. If you only use it in parallel, the small nose on the right side locks in!
Conclusion:
A great stage guitar, immaculately finished and with great factory settings, at an unbeatable price! For the full score and an absolute buy recommendation!

Trauma instrument

Mark .D, 21.03.2017
For a long time I was fond of the desire to buy an ovation. After some comparisons, among other things also reviews in specialist magazines, I decided for the Elite Plus. And I am overwhelmed.
Absolutely super playability a great factory setting including a fantastic string position, cleanly rounded edges and a brilliant sound reinforces as pure as pure.
The processing is top and the beautiful Edelhozdecke round the perfect overall picture.
A trampoline for me, both visual and musical.
