Ovation Unveils Proto Limited LT-60

Ovation's new limited-run U.S.-made model, the LT-60, has a deep Lyrachord body, and an Adirondack spruce top.

Scottsdale, AZ (August 28, 2013) -- Ovation unveils a new perspective in sound and style with the Proto Limited LT-60 acoustic, a limited-run U.S.-made model with an Adirondack spruce top on a deep-contour Lyrachord body. The LT-60 features a modern, angled take on the classic carved headstock shape, and is capped with a newly-designed Ovation “O” logo. The “O” logo also appears as the shape of the LT-60’s center sound hole.

Design features include a pommele sapele rosette with abalone inlay work, pommele sapele body binding, neck binding and headstock inset, 12th fret “O” inlay in abalone with rosewood “shadow”, ebony bridge and textured enamel body finish. Every LT-60 comes complete with the Ovation OP-Pro Studio onboard pickup/preamp system with three-band EQ, exciter and compressor/limiter circuitry; chromatic tuner, battery life indicator and balanced XLR line output.

“The new LT-60 presents new ‘Artistry Advanced’ concepts in tone, materials, design and aesthetics,” says Jason Barnes, Ovation product manager. “The result is remarkable playing feel and a clear, complex voice with great warmth and character.”

MSRP $5,199
