Product Description

The Ovation CC245 Celebrity 12 String Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar is the ideal way to get that broad, unique 12 string sound on your stage!
Thanks to the Ovation Celebrity line, the sound that made the acoustic guitar a viable electric instrument, is now within everyone's reach. Features include an Ovation Slimline pickup, a center-soundhole, a rosewood fingerboard and gold hardware. Built by Ovation's Pacific-based subsidiary, the Celebrity benefits from the same USA-made Lyrachord body as its more upscale American brothers.

Onboard Active Preamp
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.

Playability and Feel
Super Value
Your general opinion of this product.
I don't know how they can make such a beautiful guitar for this price. The finish is perfect, the action low, the neck is great and tuning stable.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Excellent construction all around.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The guitar itself is light-weight. The neck has a great smooth unvarnished surface that remains playable when you sweat. And it's very well balanced as it hangs from the strap. I personally find the round back great for adjusting the angle of the guitar face for sight and handling.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
On the bright side, with perhaps less low end than other body styles.
How was the action out of the box?
Perfect. Low and very playable.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Beautiful finish, without any visible flaws.
How has it stood up over time?
I haven't had it long enough to know for sure; but it stays in tune very well for entire playing sessions.
