Hi! Thanks for the add, i'm glad to join this site,

Just traded a guitar for an Ovation Celebrity Elite CS-257 serial 575117 made in 2003 i believe, all of the guitars i've seen on the web are made in Korea but mine is made in the USA as mention in the inside Label, i don't know why, does anyone have an explanation? TKS in advance

I would have see the Label to give you an explanation...
But Celebrity guitars are made in Asia. That is why they are "Celebrity" guitars.
(if it was made in the USA it would be an Ovation)
But CS257's are still nice guitars. I have owned a few.

Anyway, a Moderator will be along eventually (Football is on TV) to upgrade your status.
Only a few people can respond in this section.
Maybe someone else can help you in your quest.

I can't tell from the pic, but it looks like the label was added and not the original label... the fraying on the bottom is what I noticed.. the label is just paper, attached directly to the bowl. That looks like a label attached to something else, attached to the bowl.

The previous owner told me that he bought it new, so the sticker look legitimate to me.

Regardless of what you were told, in this blow up of the sticker you can see it's a "picture" of a USA sticker with some photoshop work. See how there is no "edge" to the oval sticker as it fades into what appears to be the actual bowl texture of a USA bowl.

As others have stated, regardless, it's still a nice guitar.
