Product Description

The Ovation CC24 Celebrity Cutaway Acoustic Electric delivers the classic Ovation Sound.
The sound that made the acoustic guitar a viable electric instrument is now within everyone's reach. This new version, the Celebrity CC24, is a comfortable, mid-depth bowl instrument with OP4BT electronics, gold hardware and abalone inlays and rosette. Ovation Celebrity features include a center soundhole, rosewood fingerboard, and the same USA-made Lyrachord body as its more upscale American brothers.

Onboard Active Preamp and Tuner
The OP4BT preamp offers +/-12dB control over the bass, midrange, and treble frequencies for great tonal flexibility. It's on-board tuner is easy to use and helps you stay perfectly in-tune, even when using open or non-standard tunings.



Ovation Guitars
Ovation guitars first captured the interest of professional musicians who wanted an acoustic guitar with greater projection on stage. The most visible of these guitarists in the late '60s was Glen Campbell. Every week Glen and his Ovation were welcomed into millions of homes around the country, as America tuned into The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour.

In the beginning only about 15% of the Ovation guitars had pickups. Ten years later, 90% of our guitars were acoustic/electric. The truly amazing thing is that it also took about 10 years before any of our competition began to offer acoustic/electric models as standard in their line.

While the Ovation pickup has remained the same, the electronics have kept pace with the players' needs and sound reinforcement technology. Over the past 25 years, Ovation has maintained its leadership as the dominant acoustic electric guitar in the world.

I love me some Ovation.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This guitar is well made and quite playable right out of the box. No visible flaws were apparent when it arrived. The tuners are good quality. The only times I've had to retune, I had to tune down becasue we keep our house fairly cold. The tuners don't seem to loosen in the case like cheap tuners tend to do. I am satisfied.
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
So far so good. I've only had it a month, but the last Ovation I had lasted me several years.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
This is a beautiful guitar. I have had it for about a month. It is my second Ovation in a string of many guitars over the years. You just cant beat the tones of Ovation guitars. It is pleanty loud on its own; infact I haven't even plugged it in yet. P.S. The onbboard tuner is great.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The neck is very fast. I like how, unlike most acoustics, it is thin like on an electric. The guitar is extremely easier to play...much easier than my Fender Acoustic. It is like playing an electric with accoustic tones. It takes a minute to get used to the round back though, as far as how the instrument sits against you.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone is very good. This guitar is a happy sounding one, although you can bring out her darkside very easily when needed.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish is great, no blemishes anywhere. You might want to use a little fret oil on the fret board though.
Action
How was the action out of the box?
Straight out of the bix the action is ok but mine needed a little tweeking as all guitars do when you don't buy them directly from a store. I took out a shim from under the bridge because I am very picky about string height,and now the strings are about the thickness of a match book above the frets from lower to upper. Most people wouldn't have been offended by the factory settings.
