A $300ish instrument with rosewood back and sides, sitka top, mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard (and a decent gig bag). The components alone would cost more than the price of this guitar. This is an excellent choice for either a beginning student (who isn't sure enough to make a big investment) or a seasoned player who wants a couch acoustic. It came with an adequate set up (better than many higher priced guitars) but I had mine set up by my luthier. The instrument set up nicely, has very good intonation and keeps in tune. Dollar for dollar- not sure this guitar can ge beaten.
Thanks for your review, Joseph! We're so glad that you're enjoying the quality and value of your Brooklyn!
From the reviews on the internets I was expecting a lot, and my Brooklyn did not disappoint. I'm still pinching myself. It's a lovely guitar, perfectly set up, and there's just nothing I wish it could do better. I thought I would have to spend so much more money to get this kind of quality and sound. Thanks, Orangewood!
I'm not doing this for anything in return I've just had so much as a beginner guitar player with my brooklyn almost perfect the last couple months. it's comfortable and sounds good. .seems like decent construction .I think for 245 dollars it's a great guitar . at it's original price I think yamaha fg800 would have been a better deal however.
