Ovation's Innovative Lyrachord Body with Padauk Top

The Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-PD acoustic-electric guitar takes Ovation's innovative Lyrachord body and adds a beautiful Padauk 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 at Sweetwater, 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-PD is ready to rock!

Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-PD Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • The history of Ovation
  • Mid-depth body balances sonic projection and playing comfort
  • Onboard OP-4BT preamp
The history of Ovation

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."

Mid-depth body balances sonic projection and playing comfort

Ovation guitars possess one of the more intriguing acoustic-electric guitar designs you'll find at Sweetwater. This Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-PD sports Ovation's mid-depth body style which helps enhance projection and tonal richness while being extremely comfortable to play, even for smaller players.

Onboard OP-4BT preamp

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-PD 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. Ask any guitarist here at Sweetwater - the OP-4BT gives you the tonal control you need onstage.

Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-PD Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Acoustic-electric guitar with innovative Lyrachord body
  • Beautiful Padauk top for crisp, well-balanced tone
  • Mid-depth bowl body with cutaway enhances projection while still being comfortable to play
  • Onboard OP-4BT electronics with built-in tuner so you always sound your best
  • Rosewood fretboard plays fast and smooth
  • 3-band EQ helps you fine-tune your sound for any stage setting
You're ready to perform with the Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus CE44P-PD!

Awesomeness!

You looking for a bright full sounding guitar you can pick with your fingers, (unless you are REALLY good with a plastic pick), this is a great choice. I love it! I have been picking and strumming with my fingers for 40 years. To make things so much better, Sweetwater is a GREAT company to work with. As a past semi-pro player and performer, I wish I had found them years ago, but I can assure you, you'll not find better out there when you need a company that really cares about your needs and works hard to fill them.
