Overview

The Celebrity Standard Plus series is your first step into the world of Ovation, with select figured tops, beautiful abalone appointments and first-rate sound, features and value.

This CS28P-KOAB Celebrity Standard Plus guitar has the classic Super Shallow bowl Lyrachord cutaway body with a striking figured koa top featuring quarter sawn scalloped “X” bracing. Ovation reviewed their earlier bracing patterns extensively to arrive at this remarkable enhanced design, which borrows from the past and is voiced for the present with natural tone and optimal response and power. Together, the body and top create the classic Ovation sound, resonating with full projection, remarkable note clarity and balance, and nuanced tonal complexity.

The figured koa top also has an elegant abalone rosette, ivory white binding and beautiful natural gloss finish. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable neck with a natural satin finish and rosewood-veneer headstock, 20-fret bound rosewood fretboard with abalone microdot inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CS28P-KOAB 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 CS28P-KOAB Celebrity Standard Plus Super Shallow Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is a great guitar to practice with on the couch. Stays in tune and has the Ovation tone. It does get boomy when playing aggressively but is has it's place.

    Comments about Ovation CS28P-KOAB Celebrity Standard Plus Super Shallow Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I love Ovation Guitars and was hoping this would fill my collection. Guitar does not have the true Ovation sound. Sound is not a crisp as my other Ovation.

      Has great sound for such a thin body.

      Kona Is Beautiful -- Sound Too

      Comments about Ovation CS28P-KOAB Celebrity Standard Plus Super Shallow Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I have a vintage dreadnaught body Alvarez that my Father gave me. After some research to try and determine its value, I got a little panicked. I detuned it a couple notes, put it in its case, and set it aside to preserve the value and let the wood relax since I noticed it was pulling away from the top slightly at the heel of the bridge. There are a couple nuts that secure the bridge to the top, and being a carpenter, I did not believe it was prudent to tighten these up when the wood was under tension.

      I went looking for something with a cut-away to practice and just strum from time to time to fill in for the Alvarez that I just set aside -- hearing its rich, mellow sound fill the air was really inspiring -- so I chose this as an entry level replacement, and one I wouldn't mind young nieces and nephews playing with either. I know it is made overseas, but the engineering behind the sound is solid, and the tone is clearly an Ovation -- acoustic or through a Peavey Pro 40 amp.

      I believe the wood and embellishments are truly beautiful, and it looks fantastic next to my Black Cherry Burst Les Paul Studio. I have traveled the world and have acquired various things made from different exotic woods. I compared the sound of a demo CS28P in the showroom to a Taylor (paid half the price for this guitar and hard shell case plus a 2 yr warranty as a comparison). What made the difference between this one and the Taylor was not so much the price, but ONE single feature -- the bridge construction and how the strings go through the bridge from the back. I really did not want another guitar that had bridge construction like the vintage Alvarez does. Seeing what permanent tension on a hollow body can do over time I wanted to see how the material would react over time first hand. I will still get the Taylor someday soon as it has its own unique voice and I loved the feel. I was also considering a Martin 12 string that was priced in the middle. (Another one for later).
