Just pulled my new Oliver Live out of the box. WOW! It's every bit as good as the reviews suggest. I haven't played in 25 years, so, does it play easy? I don't know. But, does it sound good? Oh yeah! I also got the optional (and free right now) accessory kit. Even that exceeded my expectations. In addition to the items listed on the website, it also included a hex wrench to adjust the truss rod, and an extra set of strings! Orangewood, you guys rock!
