I have always desired an Ovation but until I played the Celebrity I now know why!
This guitar is great for my music and I have added it into my concerts. I switch off from my 6 strings to my 12 strings in accordance with how they blend with my spiritual songs. I also every now and then each year have concerts and play nearly all of John Denver's and Roy Orbison's songs and we also blow the young musicians minds with my rendition of great musicians such as BB King - Freddy King - Jimmy Reed - Good old Chuck Berry and others. I have more guitars than I need but don't have as many as I want. Remember, that I am also a song writer and my new Ovation Celebrity is very light and thank Ovation for their talent in constructing such a wonderful guitar for writings songs and performing. This guitar is so very comfortable to hold and play for even our very long concerts that wear me out sometimes. My wife and I I am deeply involved in my Church and in many other Churches doing Spiritual concerts and also in my Spiritual concerts I sometimes slip in some wonderful old love songs which my so-called fans absolutely love. Ovation is a great name for a guitar especially one that sounds like the one I purchased which was the Ovation Celebrity CC059-4C. Many of my sub-contractors play guitar and other instruments and when they stop by to drop of bids or pick up a check we play together for a while. My wife says more than a while but I hardly every look at my watch when playing. Ha! Seriously many times I have to tell my friends that I have to go to work and we break up reluctantly. Ha! I will say this concerning Sweetwater. I have never met such wonderful sales people as Ed Needler <-- ( Please forgive me because I'm not sure of the spelling? ) I purchase all my music needs now from Sweetwater. Without question this is the best Music supplier on the Internet and more than likely in any city. My wife and I who sings with me on many songs also with me appreciates Sweetwater.
