The company, which is based in Scottsdale, Arizona, is ceasing U.S. production of Ovation as part of its consolidation of U.S. musical instrument manufacturing. Work at the New Hartford plant will end by June. Fender will now make Ovation guitars in China, South Korea and Indonesia.
Ovation® is proud to announce the Celebrity Elite series of acoustic-electric guitars. Masterfully built with eight beautiful finish options, the new Celebrity Elite models have a classic mid-depth Lyrachord® cutaway body style and an improved quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing design.
I must admit, I might be dragging from some late night fun, but I tried to cover a lot of ground and check out a larger variety of acoustic gear be it guitars, ukes, accessories or other odds and ends.
I purchased my 2000 Ovation Collectors Edition in the same year it was built. It’s a medium depth acoustic/electric guitar. Coming from a primarily electric background, I wanted an acoustic that would make my hands feel right at home.
