Ovation CE44 Celebrity Elite Mid-Depth

The Ovation Celebrity Elite CE44-series guitars have the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with a solid spruce top featuring the Elite multisoundhole design, which provides clear highs and focused, balanced bass response. For the top's quartersawn scalloped 'X' bracing, Ovation reviewed earlier bracing patterns extensively and arrived at a remarkable 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 finish.

Other premium features include an effortlessly playable satin-finish neck, 10 inch-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 fully accessible frets (24 frets for high E string) and pearloid inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CE44 features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three-band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Ovation products.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: Just ordered last week and am very impressed with sound and quality. I previously owned a ovation 12 string and also (believe it was a model 256)elite. It had laminated top and sounded very tinny. Also the fretboard starting pulling away from the neck after less than a year. I had it replaced under warranty and the second one started having the same issue. The quality on this new elite is flawless, and sounds just as good as all the solid spruce top dreadnoughts i currently own. Got it on a price match and payment plan. Couldn't be happier!
Style of Music: Rock, blues, folk

Sound: Projection is not as loud as the Celebrity Standard ( round soundhole) However, I love the sound of the Elite, it was a character of it's own. I'm still tweaking my EQ's for the tone I'm looking for, I'm almost there, I use a Laney LC65 acoustic amp. Feature: The built-in tuner not my favourite thing it does tune it to standard. I does do the job. Ease of Use: Pretty simple just adjust the eq and volume. I'll mention the action here. It was good from the factory the action was very good, I change the D'Addario EJ11 out with the D'Addario NB 12-52 Balanced Mention strings, I highly recommend these strings they will take you act from goodoto excellent, if your oguitar is set up reasonable well from the factory. I got mine here from zZounds. Quality: Quailty has became exceptionally better for Chicom Ovations. I also have a Celebrity Standard CS24 and it suffers from what is called the Chinese Hump Syndrome, horrible Hump in the fret board, about where it joins the body. It's not present in the Elite! Excellent job Ovation! Value: Excellent value! Get guitar, in MHO. It is definitely a step above the Celebrity Standard Manufacturer Support: Have never used it The Wow Factor: I have to give this to fininsh of the wood on this guitar! And the epelets(I believe that's what they're called) just bring out the beauty of this guitar, I will mention the unplugged sound again, I love it it ihas it's own unique voice compared to the Celebrity Standard (round sound hole). And I'd you have short stubby fingers like mine no problem! Overall: Excellent guitar in MHO
Style of Music: I do my own thing.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
