Premium wood, sophisticated construction and top-notch electronics.

The Ovation Celebrity CC44 Acoustic-electric Guitar boasts A-shaped bracing that was perfected by a computer modeling process. Previously that technology was only available in more expensive guitars.

The Celebrity CC44 mid-depth Ovation guitar has a beautiful spalted maple top, offering both stunning looks and balanced tone. The shallow body design is surprisingly full, thanks to its materials and design, creating big sound from a small package. The soft-V neck shape, 25-1/4" scale, 10" radius, and 1-11/16" nut width add comfort and playability for your fret hand. The nato neck, walnut bridge, rosewood fretbaord adds clear, lasting sustain to the guitar's sound. The OP4BT preamp offers +/-12 dB control over the bass, midrange, and treble frequencies for great tonal flexibility. Its on-board tuner is easy to use and helps you stay perfectly in-tune, even when using open or non-standard tunings. Gold tuners and hardware round out the guitar and add a classy shine to the instrument.

The Ovation sound

The sound that made the acoustic guitar a viable electric instrument is now within everyone's reach. Built by Ovation's Pacific-based subsidiary, it benefits from the same USA-made Lyrachord body as its more upscale American brothers. After much analysis and experimentation, Ovation's parabolic "bowl" shape proved to give the best projection, volume and tone. Thanks to extremely sophisticated equipment and aerospace research resources, Ovation has been able to determine precisely which specifications affect which part of the guitar's tonal spectrum. Nowadays, purely acoustic guitars are a rarity on stage. Over the last two-and-a-half decades, Ovation has maintained its acoustic/electric leadership position. Today, more than 95% of all Ovations sold around the world are acoustic / electrics, offering systems to suit almost any particular taste and application.

Comments about Ovation Celebrity CC44 Mid-Depth Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar. I'm already an Ovation fan, and this guitar met my expectations. I had to list only one con so I listed bowl depth (how big the guitar is) but it's not so big that it's a con, just that I would've liked this same guitar in a slightly more shallow version. But it sounds great, works great, and the onboard tuner helps immensely. I really have nothing to complain about: it's a good guitar and a good purchase.

Decent Intro to Ovation guitars

Comments about Ovation Celebrity CC44 Mid-Depth Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar ushers in my first foray into acoustic music. Keeping the price low was a priority to see if I had any aptitude for acoustic playing. I chose this guitar as the mid depth bowl gave it just the right balance of richness and articulation that I was looking for. I tend to do alot of acoustic shredding. Uplugged is where the guitar sounds best. Just a great tone all the way around. Plugged in, it tends to sound brittle in the upper registers. The high end freqs can get way too accentuated. But when you play "the traditional way", such as open chords, it sounds quite good. This guitar apparently has Ovation's baseline preamp system. Not many options and the 3 band eq is not very responsive at all. The on board tuner, however, is accurate and indispensable. The action was quite high w/ D'Addario medium gauge strings, which was brutal on my fingers. But a tech fixed that issue. Several was the frets are slightly uneven and require dressing. Not so much that notes fret out, but I have to live with buzz until I can get that fixed.I would say this is a good student guitar that sounds good and will last, but if I show the progress in acoustic playing that I'm looking for, I will stick with Ovation but will certainly upgrade.

In this price range, you can't beat it

Comments about Ovation Celebrity CC44 Mid-Depth Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

So I had been seriously shopping and playing every guitar in this price range for months before purchasing the Celebrity Quilt top. I love its playability. The action was consistent every time I picked a stock one up. The on board tuner is very accurate, and incredibly helpful. Be careful to keep this in a humidity/temp controlled room or in its case with a humidifier, as it will want to go "belly up" (the top curves out just under the bridge) this happend on mine, it however did not affect the action and still sounds amazing. Two of the other teachers at the music school I teach at constantly compliment the quality of the sound, and the guitar teacher steals it regularly and brings it into his class (he plays a Taylor 410). The guitar reproduces beautifully when plugged in, Ovation kept the controls in the electronics incredibly simple, however there is little variation when the controls are moved. And yes, it is an Ovation with a rounded back, fat or skinny this guitar wants to roll up on you while playing. The "Standing Ovation" from Great Scott Mfg. takes care of that, but sitting I never notice it as a problem. The rounded back does produce a beautiful sound. And have I mentioned it is a great guitar to look at. It is so pretty, non-players want to play it all the time. The looks far exceed anything in this price range.

    Comments about Ovation Celebrity CC44 Mid-Depth Contour Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Immediately removed the strings and placed a straight edge on top of the frets-frets 1/2/3 and 12/13/14 were way off-inserted the enclosed truss rod adjuster tool-that came that w/guitar---it was the wrong size-inserted the right size truss rod adjuster and the rod would not move--pushed/pulled the neck and it turned 90 degrees and no more-just didn't want to snap that neck----spent the next hour filing the frets down-removed a shim from the pickup bridge-replace the set of 012 to 011 and WOOLA!!! a great sounding/playing and beautiful guitar!!!! It's that easy!!!
