Overview

The Celebrity Elite Series is your first step into the world of Ovation' classic multi-soundhole instrument design, with first-rate sound, style, features and value.

The Celebrity Elite CE44-1 guitar has the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with a solid spruce top featuring the Elite multi-soundhole design, which provides clear highs and focused, balanced bass response. For the top' quartersawn scalloped œX bracing, Ovation viewed earlier bracing patterns extensively and arrived at a remarkable new design that borrows from the past and is voiced for the present, with natural tone and optimal response and power. Together, body, top and soundholes create the classic Ovation Elitesound, resonating with full projection, remarkable note clarity and balance, and nuanced tonal complexity.

The top also has elegant multi-wood epaulets, black binding and a beautiful two-color sunburst gloss finish. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable satin-finish neck, 10-radius rosewood fretboard with 20 fully accessible frets (24 frets for high E string) and pearloid inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CE44-1 features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three-band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light.

    Comments about Ovation Celebrity Elite Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Unusual sounding instrument at first. The rounded back takes some getting used to because it'll tend to work it's way off your lap. Neck is comfortable and narrower than standard acoustic guitars. There are no deep low tones like an all wood guitar. To my ears, it seems to punch out middle range tones and highs very well. No disappointments. I wanted these qualities in a guitar when I bought it.
    If you're looking for a traditional sounding acoustic guitar you may want to look elsewhere. If you're looking for an acoustic guitar that punches through the mix then look no further. This is it. Ovation makes lots of guitars to fit your needs and wallet. Try it. You'll like it.

    Comments about Ovation Celebrity Elite Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Great acoustic electric guitar for this price range. Well balanced tones from low to high. Works well with or without an amplifier.

    It doesn't have the rolling lows like my dreadnoughts, however, you wouldn't expect that from an instrument of this design.

    The intonation of the instrument was the first thing that really impressed me, which was dead on, all the way up the neck. Acceptably lower action than a regular acoustic (probably adjusted), with no fret buzz.

    The neck itself is slightly narrower than I'm used to, however, it is very fun to play, and easy to adapt to. I use lighter gauge strings on this, which seems to be preferable, as opposed to medium strings, which I use on other instruments.

    It is a beautiful instrument with a striking, unique design.

      Comments about Ovation Celebrity Elite Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I have always loved these guitars. Years ago I knew someone who had one and I was super-jealous and never forgot how much I admired and desired it. This is the best acoustic I have ever owned. It is in my hands every spare moment I have during the day and I keep it on a stand when I can see it and just gaze at it as I fall asleep. Get one!
