What a beautiful guitar! I bought this mini for my son and it fits him so well. The sound is great and I am very happy with my purchase. It was also a nice touch to send a case with a starter kit, since he needed one. I will be recommending!
I inspected the Dana Spruce upon arrival. No flaws, and it is a beautiful instrument. I was able to tune it easily. Unfortunately, I am returning it. It was for my grandson's birthday that's coming up later this month. When he mentioned over the holidays that he wanted a guitar, I didn't realize until my daughter told me that he wanted an electric one versus acoustic. I thought about keeping it myself and taking lessons, but it's too small. It's a shame because it is beautiful and has a great, full sound. You won't be disappointed.
My second mini. The other is the Oliver Jr. One for home and one for the shop. Both great quality and sound. I find the mini great for practice. I see a higher end Orangewood in the future. Thanks
Nice little guitar but just don't care for the sound of the Dana spruce and the action is set way to low at the nut.
Asking to return. Will be ordering the Oliver Jr Mahogany.
My son owns the Oliver Jr Mahogany and it sounds so much better than the Dana spruce.
Thanks for your honest feedback, Paul. If you reach out to Hello@orangewoodguitars.com we will be happy to assist you with a return.
I bought this guitar with the intention of replacing the top with solid sitka for my granddaughter. I was shocked at how good the plywood top sounds. No need for a solid top. It arrived in tune with a decent setup. This guitar cost less than I charge for a good setup.
