Exciting Updates to the Orangewood Melrose Collection

We have some exciting updates to our Echo and Brooklyn guitars!

Our team has made a few exciting updates to our Melrose Collection! To meet the high demand for our guitars - we have expanded our production to China with even higher craftsmanship and quality standards to make sure we deliver top quality instruments to all of our customers.

UPDATE #1 - YOU CAN NOW ADD A FISHMAN EQ

You asked, and we listened! Now you have an option of adding the Fishman Flex EQ System on your Echo or Brooklyn. The system features a built-in tuner and onboard volume / tone controls.

 

UPDATE #2 - UV-CURED FINISH

Good news! We now use a UV-cured finish on our Melrose Collection models. The UV-cured finish is known to be clearer, thinner, and more durable than conventional finishes. This thinner coating allows the woods to breathe more, creating a more resonant and deeper tone.

 

UPDATE #3 - PAU FERRO & OVANGKOL

Rosewood is currently protected by strict CITES (The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) regulations. Don't worry! We are now updating the Melrose Collection models with other fantastic woods.

WE ARE NOW USING PAU FERRO FOR THE BACK & SIDES
What is Pau Ferro?

Pau Ferro, also known as "Bolivian Rosewood" - is sonically and visually comparable to Rosewood. As a tonewood, Pau Ferro delivers a great level of depth and warmth, while the harder density adds more clarity and brightness to its rich tone.

AND OVANKOL FOR THE FRETBOARDS.
 What is Ovankol?

Native to West Africa, Ovangkol shares many of Rosewood's tonal characteristics - featuring a warm and deep low & mid range, making it a versatile, beautiful and sustainable tonewood.
