Overview

The Celebrity Standard CS24 guitar has the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with a solid spruce top featuring quartersawn scalloped œX 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.

    Comments about Ovation Celebrity Standard Mid-Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is amazing for under the price. I've been playing for almost 15 years so I always hesitate with instruments in this price range (I know, I'm spoiled) I played its cousin guitar, the thinner-bodied model, at a store but they only had that one. So I went online for the bulkier version. This thing sounds great unplugged, which is saying something for the ovation line, generally having a reputation as good plugged-in guitars. The construction is what one would expect for the price but this thing walks and talks like a much more expensive rig. I'm thoroughly impressed. Do yourself a favor and grab one of these even if you don't have that much experience, I can already see this one standing strong with several of my guitars that are worth tons more.

      Comments about Ovation Celebrity Standard Mid-Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I enjoy the fact that the action is low and that the overall tone is pleasing. You can hear that it is not a solid wood guitar but it has a pleasing tone. It offers a light weight package and Is very portable. It also offers an onboard tuner that is easy and functional. My only complaint is that the paint work on the front of the guitar is not glassy smooth. There are a few ripples in the paint work and a bit of grain texture can be seen close up. Take a step back and it is not visible so I may be nit picking, especially for the least expensive guitar in Ovations range.

      The Ovation Celebrity mid-depth fulfills my needs

      Comments about Ovation Celebrity Standard Mid-Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      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.

      Comments about Ovation Celebrity Standard Mid-Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Great action, tone and feel. No complaints from me, I cant understand why this guitar would get a bad review?? Its a sweet piece of work and plays and sounds great, unplugged or plugged in. I looked long and hard at all the acoustic guitars before sididng with this one. Always loved Ovations..

      Not worth the money

      By h2oboy

      from virginia

      Comments about Ovation Celebrity Standard Mid-Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I played this instrument at a jam session once and thought that i really liked it and the round back was comfortable. So I got one. when it came it did look great but the action was pretty high (even after rmoving the factory shims). Unplugged it just doesn't have a great sound. while it is super comfortable sitting down i found that when you wear it straped on while standing it becomes awkward as it tends to tip over a bit totally unlike a standard shape acoustic. So, i sent it back. For just another 50 you can get an Ibanez artwood series acoustic electric that has much superior sound. that's what i did and I'm very happy with that.
