Ovation 2771AX Balladeer In Rare Sunburst w/ NEW HARD CASE & Fresh Pro Setup
Availability: In Stock
Condition: Seller Refurbished
This Ovation 2771AX Standard Balladeer features a hand-selected AA solid spruce top with scalloped bracing, and Ovation’s patented Contour Bowl. This "DNA" maximizes acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position. The cutaway offers you an “all-access pass” to highest registers of the satin-finished, 5-piece mahogany & maple neck. High-end appointments include an inlaid with an oak-leaf rosette adorned with mother-of-pearl, a fully bound neck, and multi-ply top binding. The Balladeer’s OP-Pro preamp and OCP-1K pickup produce uncompromising plugged-in performance.
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. The Contour Bowl body has the acoustic projection, midrange punch, and focused 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.
Designed in collaboration with jazz guitarist Al Di Meola and acoustic rocker Melissa Etheridge, the OP-Pro preamp combines state-of-the-art audio quality with exclusive features designed to meet the needs of professional guitarists. This 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.

This guitar is completely free of any player's wear and has no scratches, dings, or cosmetic blemishes. Our supplier's techs found nothing needing any refurbishing so it came directly to us where it just received a complete "Post Factory" setup.
About Our Setup:
Although this guitar played “well enough to sell” when it arrived here at LightSpeed Music, I have just given it a full "post factory" setup. The truss rod was checked and adjusted. Then, the frets were leveled, crowned and polished. These first two steps allowed me to lower the saddle and nut a bit and improve the action, while still keeping the guitar free of fret buzz. The fretboard and bridge were conditioned and the nut slots were lubed and polished. The electronics were tested and given a protective application of contact cleaner and lube. Everything was snugged up and then it was polished. Lastly, it was given a fresh set of S.I.T. 80/20 Golden Bronze strings gauged .012" to .052".
