Tone of Ovation Celebrity Deluxe CS-257 :
Comments: Guitar has a very bright mid and high range sound, however, super-shallow bowl on back restrict deep vibrations of a full sized, all wood acoustic. When plugged in, guitar comes alive, with a variety of different options to shape sound according to preference. Deep bright and crisp acoustic-electric sound.
Quality of Ovation Celebrity Deluxe CS-257 :
Comments about Ovation Celebrity Deluxe CS-257 : Wood and finish are flawless, and the gold tuning hardware allow for relatively smooth and easy tuning. This guitar is well made and plays easily with the factory set "fast" action. A must consideration for electric players.
Overall Opinions of Ovation Celebrity Deluxe CS-257 :
Pros: Overall appearance and quality of workmanship is top notch for it's price. Very versitile guitar for everything from jamming and recording to performing live.
Cons: Acoustically by it's self, this guitar sounds just fine, but compared to a full sized all wood acoustic guitar, it sounds a little flat, in that vibrations of lower notes don't carry through sound board as well as mids and highs. Slight vibration from preamp fitting loosly into body of guitar.
