A sleek-bodied model with head-turning cosmetics and stage-ready electronics.
The Celebrity Deluxe GC38-CCBQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a super shallow body with a beautiful quilted maple top and a Lyrachord composite back. Appointments include gold hardware, walnut bridge, and an exotic hardwood epaulet. The soft "V" shaped neck is highly playable and the cutaway body allows full fretboard access.
Quilted Maple guitar tops are the choice of those who want to make a immediate impression. The wave-like patterns in the wood grain jump out when a finish is applied, leaving a stunning impression.
The slimmed down Super Shallow body gives you a clear acoustic sound, while offering extremely comfortable feel and playing ease. Yet it produces all the volume needed for any venue when plugged in.
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.

I have owned this guitar for over a year now and am very impressed with it. I know that others have had trouble with the inotation farther up the neck, but mine is fine. The action is great, and it sounds good. It is better looking than the picture tells also, I am impressed daily by the beauty of this guitar. It gets my vote as a good, durable, yet affordable guitar.
I've had this guitar for about 2 weeks now and it's great. They only thing I don't like about it is that the intonation needs to be fixed. When I hit anything above the 12th fret, it's off. However, I've tweaked the tuning so it sounds just about right. Other than that, it's a great acoustic. It plays great and it sounds awesome. I would most definitely recommend this guitar to anyone (at least anyone who wants a decent acoustic for a pretty low price).
My friends see my guitars (11 of them) and the only one that makes them say "wow is my Ovation quilted maple top guitar. The quality & workmanship is excellent. It does make an immediate impression. I needed a good acoustic/electric guitar for weekend gigs. This guitar has great sound (especially when amplified). Also, as my stomach grows larger...the super shallow bowl Ovation is more my style :) The sound is clear & has that distinct Ovation sound...one that I thought was reserved for the more expensive models. The built-in tuner is fantastic.
The GC38 has great fingerboard, good action, nice neck, great looks and great build quality. My only major complaint is that at the end of the fingerboard, there are some tool marks that look kind of tacky and poorly done. Other than that the GC38 is phenomenal both plugged in and unplugged.However, the GC38 has a very bassy tone, which is great for me, but not for all. Overall, a great value.
My uncle has this guitar and It has A very good tone to it. The cut out makes it great for playing thos smaller frets and The built in tuner on it makes a faster tuning and more playing. Although its a great acoustic I didnt find the electric part all that fine.
I got this acoustic last week, and out of the box I needed to tune it but, when hasn't that happened? It played well, sounded good, nice action. It was a really good guitar until I started playing higher on the neck. At about the 5th fret, the intonation started to go out and the higher notes wouldn't stay in tune, so you couldn't play chords higher up with them sounding good. Don't get me wrong, this is a good guitar, but I wasn't too happy with my model. Hopefully it is just defective and not all ovations are like that, because the other ones I've played sound beautiful. I'll probably trade this in for a Washburn Festival series or an Ibanez acoustic
The guitar has a good sound acoustically. I had it in my mind that I hated super shallow bowl Ovations. I played a few that sounded terrible (plastic like) compared their larger bowl counterparts. I picked up this one because of it's looks, but realized I found something special when the guitar just sang as I played it. No, it doesn't have the rounded lows, but it sounds like a guitar that can cut through in the midrange area. It's a pleasing and clear sound. The build quality is surprisingly good for a Chinese made guitar. Nice paint...the headstock also had red flame with a clean masking line, but what impressed me the most was opening the back and seeing that the flame was also on the other side...I was expecting something cheap with a flame veneered top. It was solid. The binding isn't bad. It looks good, but a little unrefined meaning the binding didn't feel smooth in places. There is also a strange grain change on the back of the headstock. There is this line where the grain changes from larger to small almost like there was a sticker on the back of the neck. I couldn't follow the line after the tuners. The neck looks like mahogany, but what is that line? The OP20 electronics (tuner) are disappointing. The tuner isn't accurate and tends to jump around wildly. I have yet to get it in perfect tune using it although I have used the other "OP" electronics and was pleased with their tuning performance. I just retune using various methods to get it working well. Great deal. I feel like I've found a long term guitar.
