Overview

The Celebrity Elite Plus series builds on the classic multi-soundhole instrument design of the Celebrity Elite guitars, upgrading them with select figured tops, beautiful abalone appointments and first-rate sound, style and features.

The Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-8TQ guitar has the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with a stunning quilt maple top featuring the Elite multi-soundhole design, which provides clear highs and focused, balanced bass response. For the top' quartersawn scalloped "X" bracing, Ovation reviewed their 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 Elite sound, resonating with full projection, remarkable note clarity and balance, and nuanced tonal complexity.

The top also has elegant multi-wood epaulets, black binding, abalone purfling and a beautiful Trans Blue gloss finish. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable satin-finish neck with black binding, 10"-radius rosewood fretboard with 20 fully accessible frets (24 frets for high E string) and abalone inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CE44P-8TQ features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light.

  • Mid-depth body with quilt maple top
  • Updated Quartersawn Scalloped X bracing

Comments about Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

First one came with rusted strings and tarnished frets, g.c ordered me a new one, it came and played beautifully, within 2 weeks it wouldn't stay in tune for 5 minutes, I strum lightly since I live in a condo, I understand all the weather affecting a guitar but not to go out of tune constantly, that is unacceptable, Salesman tuned and played 2 minutes while I walked around and it was out of tune again, Sorry but had to give up on the ovation name, quality is just not there anymore.

          Awesome sound and quality!

          Comments about Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Purchased sight unseen and based solely on looks and Ovation reputation, this beautifully crafted instrument produces the mellowest of tones. Quality control was handled well despite what often comes out of China. No random glue, nicely edged frets, and outstanding action were impressive. Great strings too. Try it! You'd swear it cost more than you paid!
