Ovation Applause 4 String Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar, Right, Vintage Varnish (AEB4II-VV)
Ovation's Applause Series of basses bring the Ovation tradition of building effortless acoustic/electrics within the reach of the progressing bassist. The AE4BII model has a fast, satin-finished soft ‘V’ neck and a Mid-Depth body that make comfortable playing a reality. Tonewood tops, scalloped X-bracing and the trademark Lyrachord Roundback combine to project tight punch, outstanding presence, warm low end and a balanced, musical tone. Acoustic-Electric live performance is notable due to electronics that offer bass players clarity, definition and acoustic tonal depth. Boutique-looking finishes and black nickel tuning machines set them apart from the rest. Prepare to be inspired.
Listen. Applause Basses have a thin, resonant layered top designed for acoustic balance. The soundboard is supported by quarter-sawn, scalloped X-Bracing. Basses are built with a durable Mid-Depth Lyrachord Roundback cutaway body. This outstanding design is voiced for natural acoustic tone and optimal response and power. Together, the body and top create a new classic in Ovation sound; basses that respond with full power, remarkable articulation and tightness, and grounded with fat low end.
The new line of Applause Acoustic/Electric Bass guitars highlight the focus, projection and articulation that Ovation's Lyrachord back produces in the lower register. Unplugged or amplified, this is a performance instrument with traditional Ovation appointments such as a spruce top, scalloped-X bracing, and laser-cut multi-sound holes. Four String Bass Models offer exceptional volume and clarity usually expected from much higher priced instruments.
