Overview

The classic multi-sound hole instrument design with a solid spruce top.

The Celebrity Elite series is your first step into the world of Ovation’s classic multi-soundhole instrument design, with first-rate sound, style, features and value.

The Celebrity Elite CE48-T5 guitar has the classic Super Shallow Lyrachord cutaway body with a solid spruce top. This top features the Elite multi-soundhole design, which provides clear highs, focused, and balanced bass response. For the top’s quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing, they reviewed earlier Ovation 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, the body, top and sound holes create the classic Ovation Elite sound, resonating with full projection, remarkable note clarity and balance, and nuanced tonal complexity.

The top is complete with white binding and a beautiful transparent Black finish. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable satin-finish neck, 10”-radius rosewood fret board with 20 fully accessible frets (24 frets for high E string), Pearloid inlays, and a rosewood bridge. The CE48-T5 features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three-band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light. Case sold separately.
