Ovation guitars have been a popular choice among acoustic guitar players for the last thirty years. A "made in the USA" sticker inside the body of an Ovation guitar suggests that the instrument was manufactured in New Hartford, Connecticut. However, some models feature an ovation bowl that is manufactured in the United States but the electronic components are assembled and fitted elsewhere. Ovation replicas with labels such as Celebrity or Applause are manufactured overseas. U.S. models include a nylon string classical guitar and various steel string acoustic-electric instruments.
