The Celebrity Standard CS24 guitar has the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with a solid spruce top featuring quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing. Ovation reviewed their earlier 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 pearloid rosette, ivory white binding and beautiful two-color Sunburst gloss finish. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable neck with a natural satin finish and rosewood-veneer headstock, 20-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with pearloid microdot inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CS24 features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three-band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light. Case sold separately.

The Ovation Celebrity mid-depth fulfills my needs


from Lone Tree, Colorado & Carmel, CA.

I've used an Ovation deep body (accoustic/electric)since the mid-70's but decided to get a black mid-body with electrid settings on top two years ago. Right out of the box it sounded great and after I had Guitar Center do a setup on it, it got even better to play. I use d'Addario Med Bronze strings on it and the sound carries with or without my Roland Cube Street EX. It's a great guitar, priced right, and carried in the Ovation gig bag, it provides exceptional portability to my little Ol' Time Rock, Country, Blues music.
