Ovation CE44P-8TQ Celebrity Elite Plus Blue Acoustic-Electric Guitar w/ Gigbag
Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus Quilted Blue Acoustic-Electric Guitar w/ Gigbag
The Celebrity Elite Plus series builds on the classic multi-soundhole instrument design of the Celebrity Elite guitars, upgrading them with select figured tops, beautiful abalone appointments and first-rate sound, style and features.
The Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-8TQ guitar has the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with a stunning quilt maple top featuring the Elite multi-soundhole design, which provides clear highs and focused, balanced bass response. For the top' quartersawn scalloped "X" bracing, Ovation reviewed their earlier 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, abalone purfling and a beautiful Trans Blue gloss finish. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable satin-finish neck with black binding, 10"-radius rosewood fretboard with 20 fully accessible frets (24 frets for high E string) and abalone inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CE44P-8TQ features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three band EQ, volume/gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light.
