The Ovation CC48 Celebrity is a great value for a great sounding guitar. With a super-shallow bowl for maximum playability, the CC48 Celebrity stands out.

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: Ovation is a company like no other. The style of their guitars is quite unique to say the least. I have played Ovations for some time now and I feel there is no other guitar for just about any style you are looking to play. I play rock/emo/grung/metal/folk and I have always gotten the sound I am looking for out of my Ovation (OVACC48). I do most of my recording in my bathroom for the acoustics and I have to wear earplugs because of how loud Ovations tend to get. For my money or anyones money for that matter, this is the only company you should go through. Feature: Aside from being an amazing guitar by itself, I do feel a case would only make the purchase perfect. Even a chip board case would insure the safety of the guitar. I love guitars with pick-ups. In other words, case or not, this guitar has everything I could ever want in a acoustic guitar. Ease of Use: This is the kind of guitar you can get any sound you want out it with ease. You can plug it in. Need I say more. Quality: Ovation guitars are made (in my opinion) very well. Ovation has a long reputation of making only quality products. I have played so many of my friends Ovations, and none of them have ever had any problems. I travel with my guitar all the time and have never worried about damaging it. It's a tough guitar for sure. Value: For $400 I would never have found another guitar as good as an Ovation. This guitar is worth at least $800 or more. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to deal with my warranty, or any other support from Ovation before. My friend had a problem with the leafs around his sound holes. They popped off for some reason (he plays kinda hard) and Ovation was happy to fix his guitar for him. The Wow Factor: Ovations do something that other makers don't. The look of the guitar is crazy sexy. I own the black OVACC48. My girlfriend loves to listen to me play and says I look great just holding it. In short, if your looking for a death metal look, a rock look, or you just want to look cool with a guitar... Ovation is the only way to go. Overall: I don't feel there will ever be a reason to buy another Ovation in my life. I take good care of my guitars and this one should last me for the duration. If for some reason my guitar breaks beyond repair, I will simply buy another Ovation. My music style is all over the place, and my Ovation gets me everywhere I want to be with ease.

Overall: What a joy to play and listen to this guitar; get harmonics at the fourth fret, same as my Martin. Have played Ovations for years: this one is the coolest so far.

Overall: I haven't played this guitar from a standing position as yet, which I've been told will slip around and will be hard to play. There is a accessory for this. The pitch of the guitar is high but nice sounding. The only problem so far is that it doesn't have a pick protector, and this can damage the woodwork.
