A super shallow Roundback body projects Ovation's signature balanced sound.

The GC28-AB features a super shallow Roundback body that projects Ovation's signature balanced sound. The top and matching peghead face are made from highly figured birdseye maple and finished in a rich Autumn Burst transparent stain. Powering the electric output is the CP100 pickup with six individual piezo elements. An OP20 preamp perfectly amplifies the guitar's natural acoustic tone and gives players plenty of control over their sound with an on-board tuner and 3 band EQ. An integrated pre-shape circuit lifts the bass and treble and also reduces "rumble" from frequencies below 40Hz.

Ok, first off, this is one beautiful guitar!! The finish is flawless and the inlay work was done perfectly. The pickup sounds great, even thru a marshall stack. The electronics aren't top of the line, but they sound great. It is an amazing value for an amazing looking guitar, so what are you waiting for?? BUY IT NOW!!


Not a bad guitar for the price

Purchased this guitar for my wife to learn on and have spent a little time behind it myself. Its not to bad out of the box but could use a good setup as it has some buzzing going on. I do more flatpicking than anything else and this one seems better suited for fingerpicking. Overall I'm satisfied with the guitar at the price offered here.


Just average

NO ... this guitar is not sick. If I hear that inane statement one more time, I will be sick. The pickups are sub-par and the action is high. Don't compare this to a USA $1,500.00 - $2,000.00 Ovation. The Celebrity series are dressed up to look very nice to entice the buyer into purchasing the product. Save your money and buy the USA version. The USA versions have solid tops, different bracing systems, high end pickups, five piece necks, graphic stabilizers in the neck and two way truss rods. So don't think this Celebrity compares to a USA model. If you are inclined to believe that, you have not played the USA models.


My 2 cents...

Purchased this guitar and have only had it 3 days but I will say its well worth the purchase price. Surprisingly nice tone and excellent playability. Nice fit and finish as well. Haven't had a chance to test drive the OP20 electronics thru an amp yet but I'm sure it will be passable. My only complaint about this guitar is that the onboard tuner simply will not pick up the high E string. Not a big deal to me, I tend to use my Intellitouch tuner anyway. Good value and overall recommended.

Just bought this guitar last week and it is amazing! My original intent was to buy a cheap acoustic electric guitar so i can plug in with my group (and bang it around), but i'm glad i spent the extra money!The neck is smooth. The finish is beautiful. I like it plugged in better than unplugged because it does sound shallow. But then that's what you get for buying a thin lined guitar. The only drawback i have is the action, but i'm going to get that adjusted soon.Compared to my Taylor, the Ovation Celebrity isn't the best out there but it's definitely worth a shot ;)


This guitar is sick!

By jdog-4qfSX

from Denver, Co

This is an amazing buy, I tried out at least 20 guitaurs in the price range from $300.-600. and this one took the cake! The action is a little high, pickups are not the best, but if the U.S.A made it it would be at least a $2,000-3,000 guitar! The only huge downfall is the cheesy white fake ivory edge trim, looking to get that fixed soon.


A great surprise

I was aprehensive about ordering a guitar on-line without seeing it or playing it. It turned out to be all I wanted or expected. It plays great, has good tone and arrived in great condition. Now I have the acoustic-electric I always wanted.
