It's got everything you could need to play a Awsomeness
My primary guitar is a Larrivee D03R. I was on the lookout for a suitable candidate to serve as my secondary. Primary use would be alternate tunings and (even though the term does not fit) a Beater for grab and play convenience. It has surpassed these goals. The Mason is certainly a high-end beater. It plays a bit easier than my Larrivee. Set-up seems fine. No buzzing and no intonation problems. Fit and finish is surprisingly good and the very nice gig bag is just icing on the cake. The Fishman electronics work well. The only area it falls short in as compared to my $2400 Dreadnaught is its projection. As I was looking for a guitar that was well suited for strumming with a more jangly tone, I am well pleased. All in all, the Orangewood plays miles above its $2000 difference with my Larrivee. I only wish there had been something like this available when I was first starting. Bottom line is this guitar plays at a price point twice its cost. I am so glad I found Orangewood. Thank you.
Just bought one of the almost perfect models, and there are no complaints. I like the smooth neck and the tuning stability is great. Sounds great live as well, I almost immediately recorded some tracks and it was great. I wasn’t very skeptical to begin with, and my expectations were exceeded. Beautiful guitar that plays well and feels great.
So happy to finally get my guitar. It’s a beautiful guitar and sound quality great. The tuners could be of better quality. But besides that it’s a great guitar. Another issue is the nut. It’s not properly cut causing string to “pop” when tuning. Really expected better.

I like everything about this guitar except for the strings which are a bit heavy and the action could be just a bit lower.
