The Ovation Celebrity MCS148 Mandolin has the classic rounded back that Ovation guitars have become famous for!
Along with a spruce top, The Celebrity Electric Mandolin boasts a walnut bridge, and a rosewood fretboard. To get your sound off the stage and out to the crowd, the MCS148 Mandolin uses a thinline pickup and the versatile and warm sounding Ovation OP-24+ preamp.
The OP-24+ preamp features three EQ bands with the ability to shift the mid band to either a 400Hz or 1KHz center frequency. It also features a Pre-Shape circuit that lifts the base and treble and reduces the rumble frequencies below 40Hz.

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. 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.
