The Celebrity Standard CS28-NEB guitar has the classic Super Shallow Lyrachord cutaway body with a solid spruce top featuring quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing. They reviewed earlier Ovation bracing patterns extensively to arrive at this remarkable new design, which borrows from the past and is voiced for the present with natural tone and optimal response and power. Together, body and top create the classic Ovation sound, resonating with full projection, remarkable note clarity and balance, and nuanced tonal complexity.

The spruce top also has an elegant inlaid Pearloid rosette, ivory white binding and beautiful Sunburst finish. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable neck with a natural satin finish, gloss black headstock veneer, 20-fret bound rosewood fretboard with Pearloid microdot inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CS28-NEB features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three-band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard and low battery light. Case sold separately.

Best Uses

Comments about Ovation CS28 Celebrity Standard Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Terrible guitar. I have close to 50 guitars, about a dozen of them acoustic. It's worth maybe half the purchase price. It is a beautiful guitar... too bad it just sucks in all other aspects. Makes me not want to buy an Ovation online without playing it first.
