The Ovation sound. The sound that made the acoustic guitar a viable electric instrument is now within everyone's reach. The CK057, featuring a center-soundhole and a rosewood fingerboard is built by Ovation's Pacific-based subsidiary. It benefits from the same USA-made Lyrachord body as its more upscale American brothers. The CK057 features a spruce top, a super-shallow body, Thin-line pickup and OP20 electronics. The all-new OP20 preamp features 3-band EQ and a Pre-Shape circuit for great tonal flexibility. The onboard chromatic tuner is easy to use and helps you stay perfectly in-tune even when using open or non-standard tunings.
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.
OP20 Preamp Controls & Features

Tune/Cal: This switch turns on the built-in tuner for approximately 60 seconds. Press a second time while playing a note and this pitch will become the calibration point for operation (handy when tuning to an "out-of tune" instrument). During the tuning operation the guitar output will be muted. If you finish tuning prior to the 60 second timer returning the tuner to idle (and un-mute), you may press this button again to manually return the preamp to normal operation.
These LEDs indicate the note being played and whether it's sharp or flat. Tune string up or down until the LED lights.
When steadily illuminated, indicates that the battery is low and should be changed soon. Also intermittently flashes when plug is inserted into jack to confirm normal operation.
