Perfectly happy with my purchase. Guitar holds up next to guitars that are much more expensive. Sounds good, plays well. Fantastic guitar for any level of player.
So I heard about Orangewood from YouTube. Everyone was giving them rave reviews on how great they were for the price. I loved the way the looked and from what people said they sounded decent and played great out of the box. So I decided to treat myself with a birthday present and to get an Echo. It was in the price range I wanted as I'm not a gigging player. And it looked (and sounded) amazing.
The first one I received was... well it looked great. But unfortunately it buzzed all over the place. I decided to give them another shot and go for an exchange. Which was no hassle - just took an extra week. So this is the second one I've gotten from them.
First off it does look amazing for a sub $300 guitar. Fit and finish looks really good. I really like the satin neck. The binding, fretboard, work around the sound hole... it all looks fantastic. The top appears to be 3 pieces of spruce and the body is sprayed with a thick coat of poly. Definitely no fear of getting a chip in it unless you hit it with a hammer.
Then I played it. If you like mid to high range you will love this guitar. Its just like a Taylor when it comes to sound. Just.... less of it. There is absolutely no low end on it. And it isn't very resonant. It's probably the quietest acoustic I've ever owned.
Was skeptical about buying a guitar online. Looked through the reviews and was met with critical acclaim. My Echo's got a bright sound and I'm loving it so far. Glad I went ahead and bit the bullet and ordered it online.
This is pound-for-pound the best guitar for the money. Firstly, because of its meticulous attention to detail, this guitar was made by somebody who really cared. It plays extraordinarily well and looks amazing. I would not only recommend this to a beginner, but I would recommend it to any musician who loves the art of music. It travels well because of the great protective gig bag it comes with. I like earning ball strings they put on it but I love Elixir strings which I can't wait to try. Folks do yourself a favor this is a must-have for your collection. Customer service is extraordinary. The reason I'm writing a lengthy review is obvious, I'm extremely impressed. There's not a lot of guitar shops anywhere near where I live in small town Oklahoma USA. Being partially disabled in my knees, I sure appreciated ordering from my home, having it delivered promptly to my home and opening in my home. Kudos to orangewood guitars! Best regards,. Doug
