After Ovation Celebrity guitars came bursting on to the music scene in 1966, it didn't take long before they were being championed by musicians around the world. These instruments were, in fact, the result of the research put forth by aeronautical engineer/guitarist Charles Kaman. By experimenting with various acoustic properties and materials used on aircrafts, Kaman applied his knowledge to his love for the six-string, and the outcome of his genius can be found right here in this section.
While Ovation's commitment to staying on the cutting edge of guitar designs cannot be overstated, neither can their dedication to keeping their models affordable to everyone. For example, the Standard Mid-Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar boasts first-class style and features, yet its generous price tag makes it accessible to even a casual strummer. Ovation put a tremendous amount of time in reviewing their bracing patterns, and the result is a guitar that delivers a natural, powerful tone that projects and resonates amazingly.
Another eye-catcher in this selection is the Elite Plus Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Featuring a quilt maple top, the Elite multi-sound hole design and a smooth-playing satin-finish neck, the Elite Plus produces clear highs and a balanced tone that is simply incomparable to guitars at a similar price. For those who play live, you'll appreciate how well the Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system captures the guitar's natural acoustics and amplifies them in total clarity for your audience to enjoy.
Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, Roy Clark, the list goes on - the roster of legendary artists who have played Ovation Celebrity guitars is as impressive as the instruments themselves. With their distinct bowl-back look, lightweight feel and rich tone, Ovation Celebrity guitars are unlike any other, and today they continue to amaze a new generation of guitar slingers. Give one a shot and see for yourself how easy it is to stand out from the competition and receive a standing ovation when you're armed with an Ovation Celebrity guitar.
