          Comments about Ovation Celebrity GC057M Mid Depth Acoustic/Electric Guitar:

          Once the action is lowered and the neck nut is tightend this is a nice playing instrument. Too early to tell because haven't been able to play since shoulder surgery 2 days after receiving product. Looks to be a great choice for the money invested. Definitely advise ordering an ovation case to go along with it

          Best Guitar Ever

          By Wanna-be-rockstar

          from Northern CA

          Comments about Ovation Celebrity GC057M Mid Depth Acoustic/Electric Guitar:

          This is easily the best guitar I've ever played. I ordered it from Musicians Friend and it came with a full set up and great strings. It sounded amazing right out of the box. It also sounds great hooked up to a pa with or without effects. I just recently hooked it up to a Line 6 electric amp and with distortion it has an amazing hollow body sound (a sound hole cover helps). I could not be more in love with this guitar. While at[@] I played pretty much every guitar in the $1000 and under room and this sounded better than all of them. I also played it against a Gibson Jumbo and it sounded better than that. I highly recommend this guitar.

          Good deal, Great instrument!

          Comments about Ovation Celebrity GC057M Mid Depth Acoustic/Electric Guitar:

          I bought this guitar on special for [$] and couldn't have asked for a better instrument for my money. This acoustic/electric sounds great either plugged in or unplugged. I play this baby hard and it is great!!The only cons I can think of is the rounded back and the action, both are non issues. I love playing standing up so the rounded back does not affect that at all. As for the action it came factory standard so I just had to go into the bridge and take out an extra shimmy.

            Comments about Ovation Celebrity GC057M Mid Depth Acoustic/Electric Guitar:

            Bought this as a Mint Condition used item. Couldn't tell a blemish anywhere. Very impressed with neck and playability of this guitar. So easy to play. I lost a little sound from my dreadnought but not that much. I will take the playability of this guitar and lose a little sound unplugged over the dreadnought any day. Plugged in it sounds awesome. I did have to take a shim out from under the bridge to lower the action but that only took 5 minutes. It plays like butter now and I will continue to put the same brand of strings that came with the guitar. I've played it for two weeks and the strings are still fresh. If you want an easy playing electric/acoustic, don't hesitate if pondering the purchase of this guitar. You will not be disappointed

            An Out-Standing "Ovation"

            By Gene Martin

            from Oregon Coast

            Comments about Ovation Celebrity GC057M Mid Depth Acoustic/Electric Guitar:

            Ok, I give the guitar a rating of 10 overall. The drop to 9 overall comes from having to buy a case separately. Not because of the price, but because it is difficult to know which case fits this guitar the best. I bought the ovation 8117.0 case because of a review stating that it fitted the GC057M like a glove. It does fit, but is a bit too tight. I like a snug fit, but until I did some slight modification inside my case I was afraid to latch it completely for fear of damaging the guitar. I would suggest that Ovation at least recommend which case is best fit for the guitar that one is considering purchasing,(or provide a list of all cases available for the specific guitar) and not leave it up to chance. I would gladly pay the extra price for the complete guitar/case combination as I value my guitars very much.
            Am enjoying my new Celebrity GC057M Acoustic/Electric Guitar with the amazingly sweet red finish. The color of this guitar is bursting out and catches the eye immediately.

            The setup was awesome right out of the box. Easy to tune with the built in tuner/preamp. Everything right at your fingertips. Once tuned, away I went. The action was soft and playable with no buzzing frets the entire length of the neck. Great for beginners and novices alike.

            Most players want to plug right in to an amp, but I enjoyed the sweetly soft acoustical sound while unplugged and this guitar did not disappoint me one bit. Great for practicing in a small room. Once plugged in, the sound was clear and precise through my little Dean Markley amp.

            The controls are easily accessed and tweaking the sound via the EQ was just a matter of adjusting to your flavor.
            I could not find any flaws in my Celebrity GC057M. The finish is outstanding (Go Red). The neck and body feel great. The setup was dead on straight out of the box once tuned. The sound is just as sweet unplugged as it is amplified. It stayed in tune even after several days of playing. I love playing this guitar.
            This is the best part of all. For the money I would buy this guitar again and again. For beginners to novices, the value is beyond anything I would have imagined in this range. Easy to play, easy on soft fingers, easy to barre chord, and easy to setup. I play this guitar daily.

            A real deal for the money

            By Terry Palmer

            from Ravenna,Ohio

            Comments about Ovation Celebrity GC057M Mid Depth Acoustic/Electric Guitar:

            Out of the eight guitars I own, five acoustic and three electrics this one might turn out to be my favorite. the thin neck and smooth action makes it easy to play all day long with out the lest bit fatigue. If you want a great instrument, try the Ovation Cebelity GCO57M I think you will love it. .
            Right out of the box this guitar grabs your eye with it's ruby red top and bright inlay .It was more then I expected from a guitar at this price. What a value! It's slender neck and smooth action made It a dream to play. The controls and the on board tuner are convenient and easy to use. Like all Ovation's with there signature rounded back, If your going to sit down and play use a strap or It just might slid off your lap.
            This is the second Ovation guitar that I have perched and I have found that they take pride in there work, This one is easy to look at, easy to play, well built instrument.
            For the money I think it would be hard to find a better buy.

            Love my Ovation

            By Christina Gordon

            from Michigan

            Comments about Ovation Celebrity GC057M Mid Depth Acoustic/Electric Guitar:

            Overall this is the best guitar I have ever played, the sound is amazing, the look is great, the feel is perfect. I love it.
            Absolutely amazing, don't use the onboard tuner much, but it's nice to have. I love the rounded back, the smooth action and the fact that there's no pins you have to mess with when restringing.
            Again, very good. It can take my slightly rough handling; being bumped into walls and doorframes and such. Even changing temerature extremely, it does a fairly good job staying in tune.
            Absolutely fantastic guitar for the money, it's a much better guitar than a lot of the expensive ones. Totally worth it.

            Amazing guitar

            By Eric Green

            from Nixa, MO

            Comments about Ovation Celebrity GC057M Mid Depth Acoustic/Electric Guitar:

            Ovation is a very well made quality instrument company. And to think they originally made spacecraft! Do not let this value pass through your hands! If you are serious about your musicianship and really care about your acoustic, this is the route to go.
            I play guitar for my church, and I needed one that I could play through the system. I went to one of the local music stores and found this beauty on the wall. I had only heard about Ovations, but never saw or heard one in action. This Celebrity Ovation has a quilted maple top and it has amazing sound!
            The Stock preamp in it is incredible! The neck is nice and thin, and the action is just right for my tiny hands. I also love the mother-of-pearl inlays. The rounded back can get to some people, but I personally like it! Ovation is one of the best guitars I've played, and it is so affordable, I would highly recommend it.
            The quality of Celebrity Ovations is remarkable! The body is resistant to weather changes because of the lyrachord back. However, watch the strings, dramatic changes in temperature can cause them to fall out of tune (just like any other guitar). The stock preamp and equilizer are astounding, although I can't seem to find a EQ I like yet, but that's just me. I just boost the bass, slightly boost the treble, leave the mid-range in the middle, and viola! Very nice guitar sound.
            This is in my opinion the best guitar in the price range! The sound and craftsmanship is just absolutely awesome, and even stage musicians and major performers have used Ovation! It is a top-of-the-line guitar at an intermediate price!
