          Comments about Ovation Celebrity Mid-Depth Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          This review is as much about MF service as it is about the instrument. I was looking for a spare guitar I could take out on the patio or camping... Basically anyplace I was not comfortable taking my Martin. I started with the applause ae148 after reading a lot of reviews written by older guys like myself who were looking for another guitar for the same reasons as myself. When it arrived I liked what I saw, but did not get the playability I had read so much about. Removing both bridge shims had a modest effect on the overall playability of the instrument. Once you got past the 3rd fret, it went downhill quickly. I contacted MF customer service, explained my experience and the rep was pretty confident the instrument was not up to par any processed an exchange. As the applause was on its way back in, I began to wonder why I did not just get a comparably priced genuine Ovation. Another call to MF customer service, explained my tale and the rep said "no problem. In fact we have a better special on and I'll add that in." The applause exchange was cancelled, added the Celebrity and several sets of strings to make up the difference and that was that. I was very pleased with the celebrity out of the box. Decent strings but the action a bit high. I removed the only shim but did not notice the included extra bridge until I had retuned it. It plays good, sounds like an ovation, sounds deceptively good plugged in- I ran it direct into my recorder, flat and dry and was and am blown away. The shallow bowl of the applause was a bit more comfortable, and players with smaller hands than me that don't venture beyond the first 3 frets very often will be tickled with the applause, but this was a better fit for me. Unbelievable you can get an acoustic electric like this for what little I paid, not to mention the quality of service. I have played several Ovations over the years, and seem to remember a rubber non slip pad on waist between the bouts. Not a big deal as I can find a solution for that. The Celebrity won't make me fall out of love with my D35, but I enjoy playing it, and that's what it's all about to me.

          Comments about Ovation Celebrity Mid-Depth Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I have owned a few Ovation guitars and after having my last one stolen I bought this beautiful guitar. It looks better than the picture, very nice shine to the paint.
          The sound is fantastic and clear. No Fret Buzzing, and a very smooth neck. I am using the strings that came on it because it sounds so good I am saving my new strings for later use.
          I have been playing guitar for 29 years and I will always stand behind Ovation guitars. They are extremely well built. When it arrived the box was crushed so bad I just knew that the guitar was destroyed. Well to my surprise there was not even one scratch! That's how tough these guitars are.

              Comments about Ovation Celebrity Mid-Depth Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              This guitar replaces a 30 year old acoustic only Ovation. The old guitar has held up wonderfully after years of use and abuse. This new guitar is a great replacement. I also got it for an unbelivable price after a 15% discount. Thanks Musician's Friend! I am now a loyal customer.

              I'm still getting used to the fact that it has an electric output and an equalizer to boot. Sounds great out of the box. The action is a little higher than I like (which can easily be adjusted), but I'm being very picky....this is a genuine Ovation guitar. I can feel the quality of the guitar, and I can hear it in the way it plays. I have no doubt that this will last me another 30 years.

              Sunburst?

              Comments about Ovation Celebrity Mid-Depth Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I've played an ovation for years and loved it. When my 14 yr. old daughter wanted to start playing acoustic I recommended ovation and we found this one in her price range. It is a great guitar for the money and easy to play. My complaint is that the picture shows it in 3 tone sunburst and the guitar is only 2 tone- black to yellow, no red. We were both disappointed because it looks so much better with the red. It is quite misleading to recieve a different color than the picture shown. Three tone sunburst is my favorite guitar color so I take it pretty seriously. I got a tobacco burst/2 tone electric once and it bothered me so bad I had to sell it. I'm not even kidding! But my daughter likes the guitar and has decided to keep it despite the inferior color.

              I like the Ovation Celebrity 24-1

              Comments about Ovation Celebrity Mid-Depth Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I owned an Ovation Legend 30 yrs ago and liked the sound. I wanted one with a cutaway and acoustic electric. This Ovation Celebrity has both. Mine has good string action from the factory, but has easily removed shims if you want lower strings. The finish is very good. The preamp comes with a 9 volt battery installed and ready to amp up. I play it through a small Honeytone amp for practicing and it sounds great. Unplugged the sound is bright with good projection. I think this is a real value for the money.
