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.
As a 54 year old bassist, this was my first guitar. Extremely well made and sounds great. Great playability out of the box. This guitar has made learning a joy and I can't imagine a better deal at this price point
I’ve had it for a little over a year now, and this was my first “real” guitar. I don’t think I could’ve chose a better guitar to really start my acoustic journey. I now own several higher end guitars (including another Orangewood, also I know it’s only been a year but I have an addiction now don’t judge me), but this one is still by far probably my favorite. I am extremely glad I bought this guitar and would recommend it to everyone.
Thanks for your review Andrew! We're so glad to have you part of our Orangewood family!
