Ovation Viper Features...
Solidbody and Ovation... two words not often associated with one another, however those who have experienced such a combination I'm sure would agree with us when we say that this is not something to be over looked... they're actually pretty good!

Visually the Viper is more discreet than some of Ovation's other products (see Ovation Deacon!), clearly taking strong influence from the classic dreadnought shape. During the 70's at the time of its release, the Viper's strongest selling point was its pickups. At a time when customisation of pickups was really becoming popular, and guitarists were often upgrading their stock single coils to hotter models, it seemed only logical that somebody produce a guitar fitted with these high output pickups.
In each pickup on the Viper, Ovation wraps the coil with 30% more windings for a stronger signal. The entire assembly is then surrounded with vibration-dampening material, and because it is shielded by a patented split casing, the Viper pickup reproduces less line noise and more highs than conventional single coil designs.
The sound this guitar makes really is wonderful - its warmer, fuller and has more depth than your traditional Strat-esque type sound, yet still retains that classic single coil character that has now become so sought-after.
