Ovation guitar production has finally returned to the USA, following the opening of a production unit in Hartford, Connecticut. According to European distributor GEWA, a small team of luthiers and Ovation experts is once again making Ovation instruments to the highest level.
Pick of the crop from Hartford is said to be the Ovation LX Series. The LX models feature a light-weight, resonant Lyrachord GS bowl, improved bracing, the ‘Advanced Neck System’ and the OP Pro Studio pre-amp. According to GEWA: ‘The result is an Ovation guitar of unparalleled playability with superior acoustic and electric sound. Available as Custom Legend LX and Custom Elite LX in four different colours and four different bowl shapes’.
