Ovation CE44-RBB Celebrity Elite, Reversed Blue Burst
Ovation Celebrity Elite CE44-RBB, Reversed Blue BurstThe Celebrity Elite series is your first step into the world of Ovation's classic multi-soundhole
instrument design, with first-rate sound, style, features and value.
The Celebrity Elite CE44-5 guitar has the classic mid-depth Lyrachord® cutaway body with a solid spruce top featuring the Elite multi soundhole design, which provides clear highs and focused, balanced bass response. For the top's 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 and a beautiful gloss black finish.
Other premium features include an effortlessly playable satin-finish neck, 10"-radius rosewood fretboard with 20 fully accessible frets (24 frets for high E string) and pearloid inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CE44-4 features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three-band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light.

Another quality guitar by Ovation. Everything about it screams perfection from the reversed blue-burst colour finish to the leaf sound holes design. The full-bowl back continues the Ovation tradition together with a fretboard that makes playing the instrument a real pleasure. The full acoustic sound is enhanced further when the internal pick-up is used. This guitar will be a treasured part of my collection.
The Ovation is in my mind a well built guitar with a unique tone. The build and paint work is first class. My dislikes are few and first is the action , trying to adjust the action is a nightmare the saddle end with the piezo in the mix. And finally getting to learn spares are hard and expensive to obtain. Having said all that, the guys at GAK do a fine job.
