I've been playing for about 15 years and this is my first ovation. I has been dropped, knocked over and has had its fair share of beer and other adult beverages spilled on it. Typical bar gig abuse. And still stays in tune very well. Good solid guitar. For the people who are looking for, or expect this thing to sound great unplugged, look further. These guitars are not designed for the unplugged situation. Plugged in they sound very good. I typically use Elixer 12's. I've never bought a guitar that I didn't make some minor action changes and this was no exception, but once it was set up to my liking, it plays beautifully. I run it through a Zoom A2 acoustic multi effects pedal along with and EQ, Volume, and Wah Pedal. All of that goes direct into a PA. I'm very happy with this set up, and have no plans to change. The only true complaint I have with mine is the Multiple sound hole design created massive amounts of feedback at higher levels. I fixed this problem by covering the sound holes from the inside of the guitar, by taking the back cover off to access them. I just used high density cardboard painted black to do this. You can't even tell unless you get up close, but now I can crank it with absolutely no feedback issues. Overall this is a great guitar. It gets played approx 225-250 shows a year and has never had a hiccup. Oh yea and the Battery life is outstanding. I can go nearly 20 shows before I change the battery.

Well this is a great guitar if you know 5 chords. I am picky. I try not to be negative but it just depresses me after 5 minutes of playing. Action could be better. I even set it up myself and after all the tweaking blah blah blah. Electronics sounds ok. I would not buy this again. Go check it out at a music store first, play it for 30 minutes and buy if you like. 2.5 because it plays bad.

Very pleased!

Comments about Ovation GC057 Celebrity Super Shallow Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Bought this after having my Baladere destroyed and not having the cash to buy the same. Was very nervous about what the quality would be. Not nervous anymore! Action was perfect out of the box. Finish was flawless. Sound is great plugged in but lacks a little low end unplugged-this is due to the super shallow bowl. Have to say I love it. I play it hard everyday and it doesn't even lose tune-Aparently Ovation really does have quality control over their imported guitars. I am buying another one just a different finish.

Comments about Ovation GC057 Celebrity Super Shallow Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have had my Ovation Celeberty for 13 months. I love it. It has great tones. You can go from campfire folk songs to modernday acoustic rock fast. It has a great built in tuner. (almost as accurate as my boss tuner pedal. Over all it was the best buy in my price range.

Comments about Ovation GC057 Celebrity Super Shallow Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar because my shoulder was hurting from leaning over my 700 dollar jumbo body. I figured it would be good to practice with. Well I fell in love! Its a pleasure to play sounds great with or without amp and stays in tune. I was never an Ovation fan but this guitar has changed my mind. If it cost twice the price I would buy it. You MUST buy this guitar. NOW!

I got a used one of these. This sounds better than most acoustic guitars and also sounds amazing when plugged in. I really like how shallow it is, yet the tone is not compromised. Excellent guitar.

Comments about Ovation GC057 Celebrity Super Shallow Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar a couple months back after spending time playing my friend's and wanted my own. It's clean sounds and amazing looks keep amazing me. The built in tuner helps when not skilled in tuning by ear. Haven't yet used with an amp yet but I am sure it works as well as it does without if not better. Great Buy!

Best Value

By ShirlyPunk

from Muskegon, MI

Comments about Ovation GC057 Celebrity Super Shallow Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The pricetag on this guitar really is really misleading. It has the price of an entry-level guitar, but plays like some of the best available. Terrific sound, the onboard tuner is the greatest thing in the world, and the amount of signal it puts out is impressive. My only complaint is that it can slip out of your lap when your not wearing a strap. Amazing deal.

First Acoustic

Comments about Ovation GC057 Celebrity Super Shallow Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Yes this is my first, but I have played many acoustics. I've played Martin's and Gibsons and all that, and I've found that I like ovation the best, it feels better, and (to me)it sounds better. This is a cheap guitar, but I'd buy this model even if it was twice as much. Ihe satin painted neck makes it nice and smooth and easy to move around on. Over all, great guitar. A must buy for those who don't have much money.

Very Nice Acoustic Electric for a Value Price

Comments about Ovation GC057 Celebrity Super Shallow Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I really like this guitar for a number of reasons.The Super Shallow body is very comfortable to hold both sitting and standing.I think it sounds very good acoustically and outstanding when plugged in.Cosmetically it's a mixed bag.The Black top is flwless with the exception of the inside of the soundhole which didn't get enough paint.There were other little cosmetic things but I can overlook them when I hear the great tone.Tuners seem very good.Overall one of the great deals in this price range.

A good guitar at a good price!!

By BAM331

from Lisle, IL

Comments about Ovation GC057 Celebrity Super Shallow Bowl Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar looks good and plays even better. I just purchased this guitar today and I just can't put it down. It has a very beautiful sweet sound to it and the action on the frets is like none other that I have played on. Another very cool and sometimes nessesary feature is the onboard tuner, no need to fumble around with cables or external tuners. For the money this is a steal!!
