Ovation guitars have been winners onstage for decades - find out why, with the Ovation Celebrity Standard CS24.

Ovation Celebrity Standard CS24 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 out there. This Celebrity Standard CS24 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 Standard CS24 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 Standard CS24 Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Acoustic-electric guitar with innovative Lyrachord body
  • 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
  • Bound 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 Standard CS24!

This ain't no Martin, but it's still awesome!

Great guitar... I own several Martin's and of course this is nothing like that, but when it comes to mixing the sound up and going with something different for a different feel and tone... this is it. I mean that in a good way. Tony Dayton at Sweetwater is the best ever!
