This Oliver M Natural Burst is my third purchase with these guys. The prvious 2 are a Brooklyn and a Manhattan.
Just like the other 2, the guitar is awesome, starting with the aesthetic looks and ending with never wanting to let it rest from your hands:).
It plays like a dream, making it perfect for beginners. It is trully set up before shipping. It only took me a 1/4 turn on the rod to have the action sit nicely at below 2mm on low E with absolutely no buzz. The neck is straight as a candle and tuners hold tune in for a long time.
What else can you wish for at this price point???
It is a bit on the heavy side for me, weight wise, but i guess that can go as credit towards the great build quality.
Highly recommend to anyone from newbies to pros out there.
It's great for learning, couch playing, song writing, camp fires, or to impress that girl you've been running after:)
Thumbs up to you Orangewood for another great instrument!
Thank you for your continued support, Alexandru! We appreciate your review and hope you enjoy playing your Orangewood guitars!
Great sound, impressive build quality.
Like the guitar, there’s a little dull buzz on B string (9th and 101th fret). I like the action pretty low, so I’m sure I can fix it. Do you have a suggestion?

I was looking for an inexpensive guitar to take camping and after looking at all the options I decided to give the Orangewood Oliver a try. There were so many positive reviews on Youtube and the price was in the budget I wanted to spend. The guitar did not disappoint. It plays as easily as my Martin D12e but cost over $1,000 less. The sound was a little boxy compared to my dreadnaughts but it has suprising sustain and a sweet sound. The fit and finish were better than I expected. There were a couple of rough spots but a quick buffing with extra fine steel wool brought the finish up to a high quality. I've looked at guitars costing 3 times as much that didn't look this nice. The only complaint I have, and the reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5, is the bridge pins. I wanted to change the strings and the plastic pins don't have a shoulder that a bridge pin puller can work with. The only effective way I could pull the pins was to loosen all the strings off completly and reach my hand through the sound hole to push them out from below. Orangewood could remedy this really easily by just using a shouldered pin. Other than that I very highly would recommend this guitar for someone who is looking for a travel guitar to take camping or the beach or for a beginner looking for a first guitar.
Also a shout out to Orangewood's great customer service!
Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback!
Where do I start? Everything about this affordable instrument is top-notch. I went over this guitar when I first received it with a fine-toothed comb. Fit and finish are actually excellent. Far beyond my expectations. Tight seams. No overhanding fretwork. No fret buzz. No lift in the bridge. The nut and saddle, being real bone, are features of (usually) much more expensive guitars. The tone is warm and resonant. I could not be happier.
Thank you for your review, Troy! We're glad you're happy with the fit and finish!
