CE44-RBB - Reverse Blue Burst
The Ovation Celebrity Elite CE44-RBB acoustic-electric guitar combines Ovation's innovative Lyrachord body with a solid spruce top for sweet tone with gorgeous looks to match.
The Lyrachord body is a durable, lightweight alternative to wood backs and has a smooth interior surface that's designed to enhance the reflections inside your instrument. The Mid-Depth Cutaway body strikes a balance between Ovation's thinnest and thickest body styles. And with the built-in OP-4BT electronics, the Ovation Celebrity Elite CE44-RBB is ready to go live.
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 a rounded back would actually enhance the balance and projection of an acoustic guitar. And so the lyrachord 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."
Ovation guitars possess one of the more intriguing acoustic-electric guitar designs you'll find. This Celebrity Elite CE44-RBB sports Ovation's mid-depth body style which helps enhance projection and tonal richness while being extremely comfortable to play, even for smaller players. The mid-depth design is excellent at feedback rejection when played plugged-in, but it also has enough air mass to provide plenty of resonance and depth when played acoustic.
