With so many different guitars to choose from, how do you narrow down which model is right for you? Thankfully, the perfect solution could be written in the stars. Our in-house astrology aficionados are here to recommend the best instrument for you based on your zodiac sign and playing style. It’s time to get cosmic.
March 21 – April 19
Aries are passionate leaders in life and lead guitarists on the stage. Your ambitious spirit and fiery personality is suited for the rockstar life, and you aren’t afraid to make some noise.
For this fire sign, we recommend a guitar as loud and proud as you. Meet Duke Live, an instrument designed to be heard. As Orangewood’s largest guitar, this jumbo model is adored for its bold, unapologetic sound.
April 20 – May 20
Taureans are relaxed, grounded spirits who bring good vibes with them wherever they go. Fans of the little luxuries in life, you know that the secret to a good day is a kickback with your favorite guitar.
To share the good times with friends, you’ll want an Oliver Mahogany. This gorgeous acoustic offers a warm, even sound in a comfortable grand concert package — perfect for those who value balance as much as a Taurus.
May 21 – June 20
Charming Geminis: you’re outside-the-box thinkers and confident communicators. We can think of no greater Gemini instrument than an Echo 12 Live. As unique as you, this double-stringed guitar adds a new dimension to your sound. Plus, your creativity gets a volume boost thanks to its resonant dreadnought shape.
June 21 – July 22
Cancers simply do not get enough credit for their go-getter attitudes, near-supernatural intuition, and incisive understanding of the human heart. Artistically, you express complex emotions with ease, and no doubt are brilliant at spinnin’ deep, impactful lyrics.
For these natural born singer-songwriters, we recommend our vintage-inspired Sierra. With its nuanced, studio-ready sound and tasteful aesthetic detailing, this instrument is a sophisticated accompaniment to your musical poetry.
July 23 – August 22
One of the most charismatic signs, Leos make for charming party hosts and respected leaders. You bring out the best in everyone, no matter their interests, and are the glue that holds your band together.
For our eclectic Leos, we recommend our limited edition Echo Vintage Sunburst Live. Perfect for the sign that fits in everywhere, our Echo’s eye-catching vintage-inspired sunburst finish can go from the dive bar to the stadium. Plus, this fiery design is the perfect homage to your ruling Sun.
August 23 – September 22
Studious and dedicated, Virgo guitarists are definitely the type to actually stick with a practice schedule — and it pays off! You aim for technical mastery in your playing, and blow audiences away with your impressive riffs (though you'd never brag).
You need a guitar with a design as efficient as you: our Sage Mahogany Live. Sage’s cutaway shape gives you easy access to higher frets, and its all solid mahogany body keeps your tone clean.
And, since you never waste time, be sure to check out our guitar Accessory Kit, which features all our must-have goods in one box.
September 23 – October 22
Extroverted and harmonious, a Libra values friendship over anything else. The jam session doesn’t start until you walk in, and you see music as a tool to create deeper connections with those around you. Well, look no further than a ukulele as your next conversation starter.
Whether noodling around with pals or leading the song circle on your Juno Tenor Acacia, you know that nothing brings people together like scream-singing “Wonderwall” in unison.
October 23 – November 21
Scorpio’s aren’t exactly known for wearing their hearts on their sleeves, which is what makes an acoustic guitar an unexpected choice for these magnetic enigmas. To match your je ne sais quoi vibe, we recommend our Hugo Baritone Live.
Tuned down to accommodate a lower range of notes, a baritone model produces a moodier voice that effortlessly adds an air of mystery to every song.
November 22 – December 21
The fiercely independent Sagittarius can’t be tamed. You live life to the fullest and are always on the search for the next big adventure. Our Oliver Jr. Mahogany might be the only travel buddy that can keep up.
As a scaled-down version of our fan-favorite Oliver, this travel guitar is the perfect size for your spontaneity. Whether you’re backpacking around the world or jumping on a last-minute camping trip, Ollie Jr. sounds great wherever life takes you next.
December 22 – January 19
Once the goal-oriented Capricorn sets their sights on something, nothing will stop them. Lucky for you, our steadfast Berkeley Live is ready to get to work.
As Orangewood’s highest tier dreadnought model, Berkeley’s designed with a musician’s needs in mind. Featuring an all solid body, gold hardware, and an LR Baggs Anthem Pickup, this guitar is equipped to go multi-platinum right alongside you, dear Capricorn.
January 20 – February 18
Sporting a thrifted fit from head-to-toe, an Aquarius is fully committed to their aesthetic. If you aren’t checking out the newest D.I.Y. show, then you’re crate digging for obscure vinyl at the local record store.
There’s only one guitar that’s stylish enough for you, old soul. Meet Florence, our vintage-inspired parlor guitar. With an intimate, bright voice and 3-tone sunburst finish, Florence is unlike any other Orangewood guitar.
February 19 – March 20
Let’s get dreamy, Pisces. You’re a true romantic that spins the simplest of notes into a beautiful melody. To match your ethereal playing, you need the Mason Nylon Live, our classical-designed guitar that’s made for fingerpicking.
Whether you're performing a hypnotic finger pattern or an emotional ballad, every string you pluck is as angelic as the next (as long as your ex isn’t listening).
