    Welcome to TB!

    Please, if you're going to make a poll, make it about the same topic as your thread.

    I deleted the poll. If you want to start it again, do it over in Bassists, OK?

    Ovation started importing solid bodies with the Celebrity brand name back in the mid 1980s. The headstock of your bass confirms that :D They were Korean made, low-end instruments. I'm not sure when they dropped the line, but after Kaman Music (Ovation's parent) acquired Hamer they started selling the Slammer import line instead.

    That's all I know.

    Yeah, I have a Magnum that I've used since the early 80's and as I recall the other models were indeed built in Korea. That's about the extent of my knowedge on the celebrity..sorry
