A stand-out guitar with improved preamp circuitry.

The Ovation GC24-AB has a birdseye maple top that gives this Celebrity its striking visual appeal, and the matched, lightweight bracing enhances the soundboard's power and projection. Ovation's classic Mid-Depth composite body delivers balanced acoustic tone and is comfortable to hold and play.

The Mid Depth body's center soundhole offers a traditional look, and its slim neck has an electric-style profile, 20 hand-finished nickel-silver frets, and low factory-set action. A cutaway insures easy access to the entire fretboard. With its 3-band equalizer and onboard tuner, the instrument's OP-4BT preamp provides players with flexible tone control in any performance setting.

The Mid-Depth bowl blends elements of Ovation's Super-Shallow and Deep Bowl designs. Acoustically, the Mid-Depth bowl delivers impressive projection and rich tone, yet even smaller guitarists find it comfortable to hold and play. It's no surprise Ovation's LX, AX, and TX models all feature a Mid-Depth body: its proprietary Lyrachord construction and roundback design let it outperform typical "box" guitars. For decades, hardworking musicians have relied on Mid-Depth Ovation guitars to cut through the mix, whether played acoustically in a living room or run through a concert-hall sound system.

Comments about Ovation Celebrity Mid Depth Birdseye Maple:

I just got my guitar today. And it's pretty much what I expected. I've been playing for 18 years and this mid priced guitar holds it own. Really though, if you can spend more than a $1000 on a guitar, do it. Those guitars last forever and quality will get better with time. Guitars in this mid price range graduallly will become unusable after 10 years of use.

I've never owned an Ovation before so the bowl in the back of the guitar is kind of awkward on my comfort. However, I'm sure it's nothing I can't get used to. I was doing a song involving finger picking in the intro/verses (which actually is comfortable to do on this guitar) and when I went into the guitar solo (that required a lot of bending, hammer ons and pull offs), the guitar would shift away on my lap. I had to somewhat stop from playing momentarily to bring it back to the initial playing position on my lap to finish the song. Out of the box, being able to bend notes are pretty good. It's much easier to bend strings past the 12th fret. But below, it is pretty hard to do whole step bends but possible. This is something as in changing the setup or putting on different strings could fix. I do have to say that I do enjoy the profile of the guitar as it does feel close to playing a regular electric guitar in playability. The tone is unique because of its non traditional materials used. It has a crispness to it and produces enough volume to accompany your voice if you choose to sing. It's not incredibly loud and isn't robust sounding though. When plugged in, the guitar sounds better with a more full sound.

One complaint about this guitar is that mine did not come with gold tuners as advertised. My tuners were actually chrome.

Bottom Line: This guitar is not bad. For the price, I believe you are getting a quality instrument. It isn't amazing by any stretch of the imagination. It's a good choice for those on a budget or those trying to develop their abilities. It's easy on the hands for sure. If you can't spend $1000 or more on a guitar, this guitar wouldn't be a bad choice.

Ovation Celebrity Mid-Depth Birdseye Maple Guitar

By Paula Williamson

from western/mid-west states

Comments about Ovation Celebrity Mid Depth Birdseye Maple:

I give 9 of 10 because I'm sure there could always be something better, but I was looking for a good quality instrument to take on gigs that are outside or in extreme weather where it would be foolish to take my $3000. pride guitar. This just fit the bill with the re-furbished price and great quality, mid-depth bowl sound and on-board tuner - just fit the bill!! Thanks for making even my lesser gigs a treat to play!!
On-board tuner- gotta have it!
Mid-Depth bowl gives the Ovation it's better quality sound. Shallow bowl cannot compensate for it's cheaper sound. This one has the mid-depth and a great sound.
Because it was listed as re-furbished, it is in prime condition, but at a price I could afford.


Best deal for an Ovation ever


  • Great sound


  • Too deep
