Similar to Dusty's popular and affordable Prelude model, the Overture is built with a laminated Finland birch soundboard and back and has the same stability and sweet, balanced sound. Extending the standard 2.5 octave range downward, this instrument opens up a wider choice of playing keys and affords greater versatility in arranging melodies and harmonies.

The Overture has a three-octave range, and the lowest note is the D below middle C. There are 16 courses of strings on the treble bridge and 15 courses on the bass bridge- a configuration that is often referred to as 16/15. Easily available keys are G, D, C, F and A, along with their relative minors, and there are a variety of chromatic notes available in each key.

• 3 octaves
