The Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-8TQ acoustic-electric guitar takes Ovation’s innovative Lyrachord body and adds a beautiful quilt maple top, for sweet tone with gorgeous looks to match. The Lyrachord body is a durable, lightweight alternative to wood backs and has a smooth interior surface, specifically designed to enhance the reflections inside your instrument. The Mid-Depth Cutaway body is a favorite Ovation body style, as it strikes a balance between Ovation’s thinnest and thickest body styles. And with the built-in OP-4BT electronics, the Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-8TQ is ready to rock!
In 1964 Charlie Kaman set out to revolutionize the acoustic guitar by compiling a group of aerospace engineers to create something guitar players had never seen or heard before. They discovered that the flat backs of modern day acoustics actually hindered the balance and projection of the guitar. And so, the roundback designs found on Ovation guitars were born. As Charlie himself put it, “in helicopters, the engineers spend all their time trying to figure out how to remove vibration. To build a guitar, you spend your time trying to figure out how to put vibration in.”
Ovation guitars possess one of the more intriguing acoustic-electric guitar designs you’ll find. This Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-8TQ sports Ovation’s mid-depth body style which helps enhance projection and tonal richness while being extremely comfortable to play, even for smaller players.
Ovation wrote the book on live acoustic guitar. They were the first company to introduce pickups and preamplifiers in the acoustic guitar, essentially inventing a new instrument. The Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-8TQ is equipped with an OP-4BT preamp that has +/- 12dB control over the bass, midrange, and treble frequencies. In addition, the onboard tuner makes it easy to stay in tune. The OP-4BT gives you the tonal control you need onstage.
