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:

    I play out in duos and bands and simply want a guitar I can take out of the case and play. I did exactly this with the Ovation. First the play-ability with medium strings was excellent. Once tuned it stayed in tune for three hours outside. I plugged directly in to the PA set the tone controls in my 'smiley face' figuration and heard a wonderful tone. It was articulate and even across the whole range. Each string had its own weight and balance. Hard to express what is 'sounds' like except to say it was warm and had great soul. Only down side to me was the on-board tuner. It was impossible to see in normal sunlit conditions and I expected to see a color change when the note was reached. Unfortunately it works by telling you if the note is high or low not which way to tune the note. Kind of opposite to how tuners function. No Red to Green change when it was in tune. Odd. Also live the push button key was not instantaneous and I accidentally hit it and it was hard to quickly change it back. No star taken off as sound wise and aesthetically it is fabulous.
