This guitar sounds and plays incredibly. Very equivalent to a $1,500-$2,500+ guitar from other brands, but at a fraction of the price. The included setup was great, and the the case seems solid. Highly recommend!
Thanks for your review, enjoy your Sierra Live!
I bought the Sierra Live thinking I would love having a smaller guitar, since currently my acoustic is a jumbo.
I was blown away at the craftsmanship and quality of the sierra. It sounds quite wonderful as well, I realized though in this process that for me who does more strumming than anything else, the smaller body didn't give me the sound I was looking for.
This isn't at all a knock on the sierra, but more on me for buying the wrong sized guitar body.
Would recommend to ANYONE looking for a grand concert.
I was a little nervous about trying a new brand. I'm a creature of habit. I have some big name guitars and MUCH higher price points and the sierra is my new work horse. I used it for a show last night and I was extremely happy with the result. It looks great, sounds great, and plays great. I'm an Orangewood fan now!
Thanks for your review and for taking your Orangewood on stage!
The Orangewood Sierra Live is an amazing instrument. I would put it on par at least with M and T Brand guitars that cost 4 times more in some cases. Since the Sierra Live also comes stock with the LR baggs Anthem. It’s plugged in sound can even surpass those. It came already setup and played amazingly right out of the box. I only had to do a couple of minor adjustments to my personal preferences but it was very good right from the start. Its tone is resonant and balanced. The guitar just rings out. Harmonics come through in a very sweet way. Being a rosewood fan, I was at first a little concerned that Pau Ferro would not give me the tone I was looking and that the look would not be what I was searching for. However, knowing from past experience that Orangewood would work with me if i didn’t like it, I gave it a chance. I am happy I did. Everything I was looking for is there. The look and sound and playability are great. Everything about this guitar is done well. The build, quality of materials and attention to detail are spot on. You can spend more on a guitar, sure, but this guitar proves that sometimes what you are paying for is the name on the headstock. Because this guitar gives you everything you are looking for in a high quality instrument at a fraction of what other brands cost. The company and customer service are also great. Don’t be afraid to do business with them. They will work with you until you find what fits you the best. Highly recommend them. I am an Orangewood fan.
