Ovation CS28 overview

  • 1Description

Styled in a transparent ruby red finish, Ovation's Celebrity Standard Series CS28 is an acoustic/electric guitar featuring a single-cutaway, super-shallow Lyrachord body with a solid spruce top, and quarter-sawn scalloped "X" bracing. If projection on a stage is your primary goal, then this acoustic/electric guitar is more than up for the job: Its super-shallow bowl, in conjunction with its resonant solid spruce top, facilitates note clarity, tonal balance, and a complex, pleasing sound. Aiding in the aesthetics is a pearloid rosette around the soundhole and ivory binding. A rosewood bridge rounds out the body.

The CS28's mahogany nato neck boasts a rosewood fingerboard with a 10" radius, 20 fully accessible frets, and is demarcated by pearloid dot position inlays. Furthermore, a set of die-cast sealed tuners secure the strings at the headstock.

Turn your attention to this guitar's built-in electronics, and you'll note that the instrument is equipped with an Ovation Slimline pickup, as well as an OP-4BT preamp system. Through the mechanics of this system, you'll have access to a three-band EQ, a volume control, a low-battery indicator, and an onboard tuner to boot. This setup conveys the commanding acoustic tone Ovation is known for.
