The Ovation CC24S Celebrity Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar which has the Ovation sound that made the acoustic guitar a viable electric instrument, is now within everyone's reach.
Complete with Center sound hole and a Rosewood fingerboard this tough little guitar is built by Ovation's Pacific-based subsidiary and benefits from the same USA-made Lyrachord body as its more upscale American brothers.
Minimal bracing, Maximum Sound
The Celebrity features A-shaped bracing that was perfected over the last few years through a computer modeling process. This technology was once only available in more expensive instruments.
The Celebrity Mahogany Top
Like its hue, the sound of the mahogany top Celebrity is a bit darker and moodier than its spruce top brother.
The Celebrity Natural Finish
The Celebrity cutaway boasts almost two full octaves of fingerboard access.
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.
