Ovation iDea Celebrity Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Built-In MP3 Recorder

The Ovation iDea CC24SI Celebrity acoustic-electric guitar leads the way in innovation with an integrated MP3 recorder, so you can record new songs whenever and wherever. The Ovation iDea is a great instrument for composers and singer-songwriters, so they can work out new compositions on-the-fly. The guitar's built-in mic can pick up vocals as well as licks that can be stored in the MP3 player. The player has a non-expandable 128MB of storage allowing approximately 100 minutes of recording time.

The digital recorder is part of the onboard Ovation preamp. A simple and direct recording control makes it easy to record fragments, entire songs, or even vocals and commentary. The Ovation iDea is also a learning tool with audio lessons pre-installed in the memory.

Downloading files from a computer or the internet is easy via USB. Files in the Ovation iDea can be moved, renamed, deleted, and rearranged right on the computer desktop. Mixes from recording software, rhythm tracks, even songs the player wants to learn can be downloaded and played either through the guitar output or headphones. Several "Jam Tracks" are also pre-installed in the acoustic-electric guitar and others are available online.

Built on a mid-depth Ovation cutaway design, the body depth provides comfort and strength in sound. Thanks to the impressive top wood, and Ovation's materials and cutting-edge design technology, the sound of the iDea guitar projects well and is pleasing to the ears.

The Ovation guitar's top is solid spruce, offering balanced tone right out of the box. The bowl is made of Lyrachord, a mix of composite materials. Its manufacturing process is based on the same original recipe developed by company founder Charles Kaman back in the '60s. The bowl vibrates well and produces a louder, more dynamic sound with a perfect response. Using incredibly sophisticated laser-based aerospace measurement machines, Ovation engineers plotted the movement of the iDea guitar tops using different bracing patterns. Through some detailed analysis, Ovation's modified X-bracing produces a rich, powerful sound that cuts through but is responsive at the same time. The cutaway shape on the upper bout, 25-1/4" scale, and 1-11/16" nut width adds comfort when playing intricate fret movements. The nato neck on the Ovation iDea guitar is strong, durable, and adds a considerable amount of clarity to the overall tone. The walnut bridge and rosewood fretboard provide clear sustain and the multi-soundhole design features amazing volume and exotic hardwood. Other appointments include abalone dot fretboard inlays, gold hardware and tuners, and a gloss finish.

The OPI preamp controller is an intuitive electronics control system. It features stereo headphone output; SB connector; display window; master volume control; bass, midrange, and treble EQ; preamp release latch (to access battery on preamp rear); built-in microphone; play/stop button; repeat/loop button; record button; and a joystick to navigate MP3 files.
