The MC148 cutaway acoustic/electric mandolin, with spruce top and OP-24+C preamp.
Rules were made to be broken. These are uncommon times. These are times for an Ovation Celebrity Acoustic. If you're bending the fretted world's rules to the limit, you need an instrument that expands your boundaries. This collection of long-scale, short-scale, high-pitched, low-pitched, wide-necked and solid body cousins goes where no guitar has gone before.
Ovation presents the first mandolin designed from the ground up as an acoustic/electric instrument. The Ovation Mandolin features a spruce top with lightweight, Mando-Quintad bracing designed to enhance punch and projection. Ovation’s pioneering multi-soundhole design enhances string vibration and sustain by improving soundboard efficiency. With its Roundback composite body, the Ovation Mandolin delivers more acoustic volume and cutting power than expensive flatback models. The instrument’s upper-bout soundholes are inlaid with exotic hardwoods, and a cutaway offers full access to the sleek, 2-piece satin-finished nato neck and rosewood fretboard. An Ovation Slimline pickup and special version of the OP-24+ preamp give the Ovation Mandolin extraordinary amplified tone.
