Stunning Top and Powerful Plugged-in Performance

The Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus Super Shallow CE48P-TGE acoustic-electric guitar delivers the powerful plugged-in performance you'd expect from an Ovation, and ups the ante with a stunning quilted maple veneer top. Ovation's classic multi-soundhole design and quartersawn scalloped X-bracing combine to imbue your playing with clear highs, focused lows, and balanced response, along with phenomenal volume and projection. A Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system provide plenty of useful features, such as a 3-band EQ and Volume/Gain control for tone-shaping and an onboard tuner and low battery light. The Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus Super Shallow CE48P-TGE acoustic-electric guitar makes an excellent onstage companion.

  • The history of Ovation
  • Super Shallow body shape yields incredible playing comfort
  • Onboard OP-4BT preamp delivers superb onstage performance
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."

Super Shallow body shape yields incredible playing comfort

The Ovation Celebrity Elite Plus CE48P-TGE's Super Shallow body design is incredibly comfortable to play, but it offers full-bodied tone and a powerful projection that belies its thinner profile. Originally suggested to Ovation by country music legend Glen Campbell, the Super Shallow body style has since become the preferred body style of King Crimson's Robert Fripp, as it enables him to employ his electric guitar picking position while playing an acoustic instrument.

Onboard OP-4BT preamp delivers superb onstage performance

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 CE48P-TGE 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.

Awesome Guitar!

I needed a light acoustic for playing on stage and thought I'd give this a try. I didn't want to drag on stage or bang up my expensive Taylors. All I can say is WOW! I am blown away by the versatility of this guitar! Thin, light and sounds amazing plugged in and by itself. When playing live you don't have to worry about the dreaded acoustic feedback. The electronics are really good and the on board tuner is a plus. I plug straight into the board for quick swaps which works and sounds great. Don't let the 'Made in China' scare you off. (I normally will not buy Chinese stuff) This is a quality guitar. Can't beat the price! Get one!
