Experimental guitar virtuoso Kaki King collaborated with the Ovation R&D team to design this high-performance instrument that was affordable yet could handle her fretboard abuse.
The 5-piece mahogany/maple neck has a rosewood Ebony fretboard, and signature Kaki King appointments include white sound hole epaulets and a 12th-fret crown logo inlay.
The Kaki King Signature model sports Ovation’s High Output pickup and OP-Pro preamp, and Kaki personally signs the label on each of these stellar guitars.
