Using the same unique Ovation Quintad bracing pattern featured on the more expensive Elite models, the Celebrity Deluxe CC48 is an entry-level acoustic-electric guitar that will continue to earn its keep as your playing skills mature.

Multi-Soundhole Technology
Multiple soundholes in the upper bout allow for more efficient bracing and tone contouring. This technique has been perfected over the last two decades on guitars ten times as expensive. Now everyone can own one.

Minimal bracing = Maximum Sound
Ovation's unique Quintad bracing pattern allows maximum top vibration while maintaining stability. In conjunction with the roundback body, the Celebrity Deluxe produces a robust sound with plenty of tonal cut.

Think Fast
A bound rosewood fingerboard and a slim 'U' shaped neck make the Celebrity Deluxe one of the easiest-playing guitars in the business. The frets are hand-dressed and the action height is set to "Fast."

Great Guitar

By folkwannabee

from VA

I tried this out at a store and it sounded great, so I bought it from here with quite a savings. I personally like the sound of the ovations...just something different about them and this guitar lives up to that. Great tone, no buzzing out of the box and the action is great.

I currently own a Fender E/A I have found this Guitar superior to my Fender. It is very well made and the quality of workmanship is outstanding for a guitar for the cost. Very easy to play and a lot of fun to play.


Amazing... Absolutely amazing...

This guitar is amazing. The smooth sound with the bowl-back and the sound hole placement makes the play amazing. Imagine Wonderwall by Oasis or Iris by Goo Goo Dolls, and SO MUCH MORE! This guitar is the absolute perfect acoustic, no matter what song you're looking to play. Beautiful tone. Plus, the built-in tuner and the electric preamp also amaze through an amplifier. BUY THIS! You will never regret it... Especially now that it's at this price!


Great Value

By rocktuna

from Reading Pa

I've been playing for over 30 years and have owned several USA Ovations inc vintage and Collectors. This one for the money wins hands down. I bought it to do open mic/gigging because I didn't like to take my Martin. I opened the box and couldn't believe my eyes. It's beautiful, flawless construcion, played great right out of the box too. Tuner works great. Stays in tune and plugged in it sounds amazing. My Martin sits in it's case and I now only play my "cheapo" Ovation


Great Guitar For The Price

By adiller

from MI

I just bought this guitar a few days agoIt takes a little bit getting use to. But over and all it's well worth the investment.The only thing that I will say about it is that the strings are a bit to heavy and there is a buzzing sound that happens on the low E string. But a different set of strings will solve that problem. Over and all it's a perfectly good guitar for the money. You can't go wrong with it.Cheers. :)


played one

My brother has one and I use to play it just about every day and it plays nice and the sound is not that bad, over all I think this is a great deal.It sound a little on the tinny side when ran thru an amp but with the EQ it can be fixed pretty easy.So if you don?t need to have a top end guitar this is great for startes.PT


Ovation Celebrity Deluxe CC48 ru

By OvationConvert2008

from Houston Texas

Most of the CC's have laminated Spruce tops but this one has a flame maple solid top. The maple gives it a nice warm tone that I found very pleasing that actually seems to soften the traditional Ovation sound just a touch, but it still sounds like an Ovation.I took it right out of the box, unwrapped the battery, tuned it up, and played for the next 5 hours straight. This Guitar is CLEAN. The action is nice an low and FAST compared with my Epiphone, the sound is outstanding, even unplugged, and the finish is beautiful.It's a joy to play, easily outperforming some more expensive guitars that I've played.I only gave it a 4.5 simply because the preamp on the more expensive Ovations are of a better quality.This is without a doubt the best $300 bucks I've spent in a long time.


Really nice for the money

By jennyfromtheblock

from alabama

Guitar was ready to go with a quick tune up which I did with the handy built in tuner, and has stayed in tune fairly well very easy to play and the finish is beautiful. Since it's a shallow bowl, the sound is not as loud as with a bigger guitar but plugged in its pretty sweet. This guitar is definately worth the money.


I like it alot

By Learning2Play

from Cheyenne, Wy

The finish on mine is flawless. Sounds good out of the box.This guitar calls out from the corner of the room to be played. Really appreciate this guitar's slim profile and lighter weight.


Awesome Looks, Affordable Price

I just received this guitar yesterday. It plays beautifully. Unplugged it has a crisp bright sound coming from it. No issues with fret buzz, mine came set up just right. Neck is thin like a strat. The binding and flamed maple are immaculate. This is a guitar that will be in my hands more often than not. It will not collect dust.
