OVERVIEW

Classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with a handsome burled maple top.

The Celebrity Standard Plus Series is your first step into the world of Ovation, with select figured tops, beautiful abalone appointments and first-rate sound, features and value.

The Celebrity Standard CS24P guitar has the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with quartersawn scalloped œX bracing. Ovation reviewed some of their earlier bracing patterns extensively to arrive at this remarkable new design, which borrows from the past and is voiced for the present with natural tone and optimal response and power. Together, body and top create the classic Ovation sound, resonating with full projection, remarkable note clarity and balance, and nuanced tonal complexity.

The CS24P has an elegant abalone rosette, ivory white binding and beautiful nutmeg gloss finish. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable neck with a natural satin finish and rosewood-veneer headstock, 20-fret bound rosewood fretboard with abalone microdot inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CS24P features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with 3-band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light.

Bought this guitar (like I needed another) because it was the Stupid Deal of the Day. A real bargain. I have 5 acoustic guitars already but always wanted an Ovation and always wanted a Koa topped guitar. Got both at a very good price. I will have to replace the turners if I want consistent tuning. Had to adjust the neck and lower the bridge to get the action down where I like it; once that was done, it is a joy to play. The sound doesn't compare to my Martin or Taylor, but I didn't expect it to. Definitely worth what I paid.

Very sloppy tuners, does not stay in tune. I won't take it out because I do more tuning than playing. A well done instrument except for the tuners. really good looking. Sounds best finger style and plugged in. Not great flat picked.

Disappointed

By JoeyD

Comments about Ovation Celebrity Standard Plus Mid Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I am thoroughly disappointed in this guitar. The action is terrible and it goes out of tune frequently. I guess I had to spend more money for better quality.

    Comments about Ovation Celebrity Standard Plus Mid Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Always liked the look and feel of the Ovation. This was such a great deal, I had to buy it. Feels just right with very easy action for an acoustic. The Koa wood and abalone accents are a nice touch. Bought as a "blem" but it looks perfect to me.

      Comments about Ovation Celebrity Standard Plus Mid Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I;m disabled and don't drive. The guitar came with a dead battery so I don't even know if the electronics worked, why should I have to run out to the store(which I can't) and spend four denero on a new battery/ Also on both sides of the sound hole were 2 dime size super dark stain spots, stuck out like 2 eyes looking at you. I did how ever tune it up and compared to other aucoustics Ovations for some reason feel and sound like the strings are to tight just no tone at all and this one was just that a PIECE OF DUNG!

        • Playing in a closet where nobody can hear

        Comments about Ovation Celebrity Standard Plus Mid Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        First off, It is a beautiful guitar, there is no doubt about that and the sound, when it's in tune is superb. Having said that, I am afraid the other reviews are right. It DOES NOT stay in tune. NO matter how you set it up, for some reason a few strums on the guitar and it's out of tune. Had to send it back.

        Put on lighter gauge of strings which made the guitar even easier to play. Very pleased with the range of sound from high to low notes and chords.

            Comments about Ovation Celebrity Standard Plus Mid Depth Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            This guitar for the conventional purpose at home does support creativity and tone control, however. The electric purpose can prove a bit of a problem in it lose of quality in sound control. Meaning the lack of saddle performance to any consumer in need of an on stage confidence reliability to execute whatever purpose at delivering music capability professionally or otherwise. I place no confidence upon the saddle's performances.
