HELP - Can you IDENTIFY my OVATION acoustic electric guitar?

There should be a paper label inside the guitar. This is where you find the serial, too. Some Ovations also have the serial on the neck block, but this is rare.

By looking at the pictures - don't you have better pics?? - it looks like a MiC Ovation Celebrity CC24 to me.

Nice guitar, laminated top, basic pickup, half-decent preamp. A good workhorse of a robust gigging guitar, only hampered by the very narrow neck.

Price is less than $500 new. Hoe you haven't paid more than $300 for it....

This was kinda fun, looking at all the Ovation stuff, and I have no opinions on the brand..(well, some, but mostly unfounded)..so thanks daddymack and DeepEnd. 

Cool to see dedicated consumers put together all that concise info.  Want to see what models they made:

Can’t find a single one that spell check would render “elevation” though.

It certainly could be, but it has created some interest, and offered me, at least, 10-15 minutes of diversion looking at the Ovation fan site.  It’s amazing how much time and effort people go thru for niche products.

They sure have, but you either love the round back and personality of them, or you don’t.  I think they appeal to a smaller, more specialized population of guitar players, thus, “niche”.  I think players would either want one, or one would be totally off their radar.

I have a deep bowl one and love it to bits. It's not an Ovation, it's a copy made in Italy almost certainly by Eko - but it's a faithful replication of the original Balladeer complete with Shadow pickup.
