a great acoustic sound, easy to amplify.
The Ovation CC026 Celebrity Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar has a great acoustic sound, easy to amplify. The equalizer allows you to choose the sound you want you can get that nice warm bright acoustic-electric sound or go with a more shallow tinny sound. With the cutaway you can reach any fret with ease, if you so desire. The OP-11 preamp is neat, with a volum, mid, bass, and treble setting, and a button to switch between preamp setting and regular amplifier settings. With a minimum hassle you can adjust preamp and amp and get a killer sound. The Ovation CC026 Celebrity Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar has a deep bowl, cutaway, thinline mic with OP11 preamp. It came with a Ovation molded case. It has a laminated spruce top, rosewood fretboard, nato-neck. The deep bowl gives it great projection though. This is a great buy for the beginner and active or any type of level guitarist great for the low price.
