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.

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.

Acoustic Balance
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.
