The Celebrity Elite Plus series builds on the classic multi-soundhole instrument design of the Celebrity Elite guitars, upgrading them with select figured tops, beautiful abalone appointments and first-rate sound, style and features.
These guitars have the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body and feature the Elite multi-soundhole design, which provides clear highs and focused, balanced bass response.The Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-PD Guitar has a striking paduak top while the Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-SM guitar comes with a striking spalted maple top.
For the top’s quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing, Ovation reviewed their earlier bracing patterns extensively and arrived at a remarkable new design that borrows from the past and is voiced for the present, with natural tone and optimal response and power. Together, body, top and soundholes create the classic Ovation Elite sound, resonating with full projection, remarkable note clarity and balance, and nuanced tonal complexity. The top also has elegant multi-wood epaulets, black binding, abalone purfling and a beautiful Natural gloss finish. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable satin-finish neck with black binding, 10”-radius rosewood fretboard with 20 fully accessible frets (24 frets for high E string) and abalone inlays, and a rosewood bridge.
For great live sound, these guitars feature an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three-band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light.
