Ovation Celebrity Standard Plus 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 you'll find at Sweetwater. This Celebrity Standard Plus 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 Plus 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 Plus CS24 Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Acoustic-electric guitar with innovative Lyrachord body
  • Gorgeous burled maple top for snappy 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
  • Bound rosewood fretboard plays fast and smooth
  • 3-band EQ helps you fine-tune your sound for any stage setting

I received my guitar the day you said I would. What a beautiful guitar. It is very well made. It is great overall. I do not like the tuner. It is not precise-enough for me. It is a keeper. Special thanks to Kyle Malone. He is always there for us. Thank you very much.
Music background: We play and sing for the shut-ins. They love it.

Fantastic Guitar

I bought this guitar as an upgrade to my first acoustic guitar. I was originally going to save up and buy a Martin or a Taylor, however this guitar's distinct looks made me want to try it out. When I received the guitar and gave it a first strum I was very impressed. The playability is fantastic and it sounds different to all other acoustic guitars. Also the electronics on it are great and very useful.

Great guitar

This guitar is awesome! Once I adjusted the action to my taste, this guitar plays great. Sounds great unplugged as just a standard acoustic, but it really shines when it is plugged in. With a little chorus added in the sound is amazing! As always, I received this from Sweetwater in one day. And also as always, the guitar was carefully packed for shipping. Very satisfied with this purchase.

A Beautiful and an Amazing Guitar

This guitar not only sounds beautiful, but it looks beautiful as well. The burled Maple top goes with the body of the guitar so perfectly, and makes a wonderful sound. The shipping only took one day, and the service was outstanding. Sweetwater is the only place I shop when buying musical instruments and accessories online!

Ovation acoustic

This guitar does have a nice feel and for the price it has exceptional sound plugged or not. One small issue I had when I received it there was a small build up of clear coat or the varnish finish whatever it is called on the back of the neck around the 3'rd fret not huge but definitely enough to just piss you off when you felt it so I took a small piece of sand paper and got rid of it I'm sure it could be easily missed but just for future customers you may want to slide your hands up and down the neck of every guitar that goes out if it would have been on the face I would have left it but you know the neck is everything when playing other than that love the guitar and your customer service is outstanding you guys rock thank you!!!
Music background: Played since 1978
