Multi-soundhole technology made affordable.

Built on a super-shallow Ovation cutaway design, the thin body depth of the CC48 Celebrity Deluxe provides comfort and strength. But don't let the slim body fool you. Thanks to the impressive top wood, Ovation's materials, and cutting-edge design technology, the sound of the Ovation Celebrity Deluxe acoustic-electric guitar projects well and is pleasing to the ears.

The top of the Ovation CC48-PD Celebrity Super guitar is padauk, a dense wood that adds sustain with a soft attack and higher treble frequencies. The bowl is made of Lyrachord, a mix of composite materials. Its manufacturing process is based on the same original recipe developed by company founder Charles Kaman back in the '60s. The bowl vibrates well and produces a louder, more dynamic sound than wood, with a perfect response. Using incredibly sophisticated laser-based aerospace measurement machines, Ovation engineers plotted the movement of the guitar tops using different bracing patterns. Through some detailed analysis, they developed their scalloped X-bracing that achieved their goals. The result is a stable top that produces a rich, powerful sound that cuts through but is responsive at the same time. The Ovation CC48-PD guitar's cutaway shape on the upper bout, 25-1/4" scale, and 1-11/16" nut width adds comfort when playing intricate fret movements. The nato neck is strong and durable, and adds a considerable amount of clarity to the overall tone. The Ovation guitar's walnut bridge and rosewood fretboard provide clear sustain, while the multi-sound hole design features amazing volume and exotic hardwood.

Other appointments on the Ovation Celebrity CC48-PD acoustic-electric guitar include abalone dot fretboard inlays, gold hardware, gold tuners, and a gloss finish. The included OP4BT preamp offers ±12dB control over the bass, midrange, and treble frequencies for great tonal flexibility. It's onboard tuner is easy to use and helps you stay perfectly in-tune, even when using open or non-standard tunings.

                    Comments about Ovation Celebrity Deluxe Super Shallow Padauk Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                    I am in a foreign country and had my guitar shipped to me, so please do not assume that this is typical. I just want buyer's to be aware that it is a possibility so they do not face the same issue. I bought this guitar because being in the military I missed my old hobby. I was very excited when I finally recieved it overseas. The only issue during shipping the box was evidently dropped or somehow otherwise perturbed enough to crack the bowl on the bottom side of the guitar it is along the seam between the mylar and the hardwood top. I've had it fixed and the acoustic seem to remain intact... so believe me you shipping can definitely hurt these things (especially when it take several WEEKS of shipping) but I must say I have to give credit where credit is due. It could have potentially been a lot worse had it not been for the packing job done by Musician'sfriend.com.

                        Pros: Warm bass with perfect treble for fingerpicking. Surrounds a singing voice very nicely and doesn't muddy up the singers mid-range. Unplug enough volume to play with a group and plugged in good rich sound as part of our church worship team. Factory setup was perfect for me

                        Cons: I had to use a fingernail file to radius the edges of the nut, very sharp. Did not receive a users manual for the electronics.
