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.
