The Ovation Elite Model 1778 TX-5GSM is a fine example of the elegance of simplicity. As with the rest of the Elite T series, the Elite Model 1778 TX-5GSM incorporates a simple, untrimmed 11-hole pattern that gives you clear low- and mid-range punch. Its rock maple neck sports a slimmed-down profile that’s easy on your hands and smooth to play, especially if you’re used to the contour of an electric guitar neck. The Elite Model 1778 TX-5GSM features a full-body textured enamel finish that’s both ultra-light and incredibly durable. And it comes equipped with an Ovation OP Pro preamp that features a chromatic tuner and a 3-band equalizer with “pre-shape” and “mid-shift” buttons.
