Ovation Celebrity Elite CE Mid - Blue Quilt
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.
The Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P guitar has the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with a stunning quilt maple, Koa, Spalted Maple or Padauk top. It also features the Elite multi-soundhole design, which provides clear highs and focused, balanced bass response. For the tops quartersawn scalloped X bracing, we reviewed earlier Ovation 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 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, the CE44P features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with threeband EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light.
