The Celebrity Standard series is your first step into the world of Ovation, with first-rate sound, style, features and value. The Celebrity Standard guitar has the classic mid-depth Lyrachord cutaway body with a solid spruce top featuring quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing. We reviewed earlier Ovation bracing patterns extensively to arrive at this remarkable new design, which borrows from the past and is voiced for the present with natural tone and optimal response and power. Together, body and top create the classic Ovation sound, resonating with full projection, remarkable note clarity and balance, and nuanced tonal complexity. The spruce top also has an elegant Pearloid rosette, ivory white binding and beautiful finishes. Other premium features include an effortlessly playable neck with a natural satin finish and rosewood-veneer headstock, 20-fret bound rosewood fretboard with Pearloid microdot inlays, and a rosewood bridge. For great live sound, the CS24-RR features an Ovation Slimline pickup and OP-4BT preamp system with three-band EQ, volume/ gain control, onboard tuner and low-battery light.
