OVERVIEW

Mid-depth body with an upgraded top, updated bracing and stage-ready electronics.

The Celebrity Elite Plus series builds on the classic multi-soundhole instrument design of the Celebrity Elite guitars, upgrading them with select figured tops, beautiful abalone appointments and first-rate sound, style and features.

The Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-8TQ guitar has the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with a stunning quilt maple top featuring the Elite multi-soundhole design, which provides clear highs and focused, balanced bass response. For the top’s quartersawn scalloped "X" bracing, Ovation reviewed their earlier bracing patterns extensively and arrived at a remarkable new design that borrows from the past and is voiced for the present, with natural tone and optimal response and power. Together, body, top and soundholes create the classic Ovation Elite sound, resonating with full projection, remarkable note clarity and balance, and nuanced tonal complexity.

The top also has elegant multi-wood epaulets, black binding, abalone purfling and a beautiful Trans Blue gloss finish. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable satin-finish neck with black binding, 10"-radius rosewood fretboard with 20 fully accessible frets (24 frets for high E string) and abalone inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CE44P-8TQ features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light.

      Comments about Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      i gave this guitar 4 stars because it was a beautiful guitar with a very nice tone.. I did send this guitar back because of the neck I have been playing classical guitar for over 25 years and this neck was so rounded and small that every time I tried to play bar chords on it that my thumb would keep sliding off the back of the neck I just not use to that type of neck but I am still looking for a steel string guitar maybe I try the codoba11-ce that neck is bigger,, anyway back to this guitar I think this a very nice one for someone who all ready use to playing this type of guitar.. I would recommend this guitar to any of my friends who play steel string acoustic

              Comments about Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              This is surely an acoustic that penetrates the mix like no other. It cooks & not only in the kitchen. Sweet beautiful sound emits from it like it is playing on its own...actually scary. Some of the overtones just happen without even trying. It is a work of art! 'Nuff said.
