Lyrachord body ensures rafter-reaching projection
Like their pricier siblings from Ovation, Applause acoustic-electric guitars feature a lyrachord body with a curved back. This combination of aerospace-quality materials with groundbreaking construction methods enhances projection and volume in ways that standard flat-back acoustic guitars simply can't. The result is an undeniably unique sound that perfectly fits the needs of buskers and gigging musicians while lending exceptional comfort in both sitting and standing positions. Whether you're just getting started on your playing adventure or you're adding a top-notch A/E to your arsenal at a reasonable cost, the Applause AE44-5S proudly ticks all the boxes.
Powerful onboard preamp with a highly versatile 3-band EQ
Ovation is recognized as the first manufacturer to add pickups and preamps into acoustic guitars, so it comes as no surprise that the CE304T Preamp in the Applause AE44-5S is a showstopper. You get a 3-band EQ for fine-tuning bass, mid, and treble frequencies, with a built-in tuner right next door — feel free to leave the clip-on at the practice space! Just plug in, tune up, and bask in the studio-quality sound of this impressive 6-string.
