While they can serve a similar purpose, Ovation guitar parts and accessories are different.
- Ovation parts: Parts are items that relate to the construction of an Ovation model and are mechanical in nature.
- Ovation accessories: Accessories are optional items you can use to protect your instrument or to expand its function.
These are some of the Ovation accessories you can choose from:
- Straps: Used to hold the instrument while playing. A guitar strap is most often used when players are standing up while playing.
- Stands: Stands are for holding the guitar when displayed. They consist of a metal frame or brace that has resting places for the bottom of the guitar and the neck.
- Cases: Cases are used to store your guitar when it is not in use. Some are made of nylon while others have a hard shell. The interiors of many cases are lined with velvet or other soft material to protect the finish of your guitar.
- Strings: Used to replace other broken strings. Strings are generally offered in a complete set of six.
- Chromatic tuners: Tuners can be purchased in different styles. Some attach to the headstock of the guitar while others are held in the hand. Many include a microphone to detect the pitch of a guitar string while others monitor a string's vibration to assess accurate pitch.
You can find these and other replacement parts for Ovation instruments:
- Tuning pegs: Used to tighten the guitar strings. Tuning pegs are made from plastic or metal and are most often offered in white or chrome.
- Pick guards: Used to protect the finish of the guitar from scratches caused by a guitar pick. A pick guard is made from plastic and attaches to the instrument directly beneath the soundhole. The back of the pick guard is coated in glue for easy attachment.
- Nut: Separates the fretboard from the headstock. The nut is made of plastic and is usually white in color.
- Saddle: Located on the body of the instrument as a seat for the guitar's strings. Saddles can be made of metal or plastic. There is a hole for each individual string.
