I'm a few weeks in and loving it. It's a great instrumen.
Thanks for your review! Enjoy your Austen!
Amazing quality and care!
Full disclosure, I did not buy this guitar, I was lucky enough to get this one from youtube Guitar Teacher Marty Schwartz, so it does have some sentimental meaning to me also.
It is a great sounding and playing guitar, the factory set up was not too my liking, but, lets be honest, guitar players can be picky. I am also not a fan of Ernie Ball Strings, a quick switch to Martins and a set up designed for me specifically...............and it is great.
Is it a $5000 Gibson, no. But that would be a ridiculous expectation. I have played it against $500 guitars from Martin and Takamine, and I like my Orangewood, I plan to order more
Pegs were too small, replaced with bone pegs. Replaced nut and set to fret height. Reduced saddle height by 4/64, now very playable with Martin extra lights and sounds great.
My grandson just loved this guitar. He likes the look and sound.
