Cleo

Open your playing to a wider sonic palette with Cleo’s timeless cutaway shape. We topped Cleo with torrefied solid Sitka spruce matched with solid pau ferro back and sides for a rich, aged tone. Gold hardware, abalone detailing, and Grover open gear tuners round out the vintage-inspired design.

Note: Torrefaction is a unique baking process. Every guitar is one of a kind, and the finish may slightly vary in color.

Cleo really hit the spot

I justified purchasing the Cleo because the cutaway gives ease of using the higher frets, and I don't have anything like a pao ferro guitar. I enjoy having the option of a cutaway with no electronics as I really don't need it. Loved this beauty right out of the box and my wife even asked why it sounds better than my other guitars. Not that they're bad, I have some Martins and a nice Eastman OM in the same price range. Gloss finish is nice. Set up was good but I'll probably give the truss rod a turn when I change string, it's certainly not urgent.

Topanga Cleveland Review

This is my eighth Orangewood guitar purchase and I own at least one in each of the collections. The Cleo epitomizes the culmination of style, beauty and playability. Rivals many guitars that cost much more. Only negative noted is that the new hard case is smaller than the cases I received with my Sage TS and Sage M. The new case has a narrower bottom which exposes the guitar body a half inch above the case before closing the top. It seems to make a good fit, but I would prefer a less narrow case.

Cleo Guitar - Better than expected.

The tonal quality and the aesthetics of this guitar are spot on. I couldn't love it more! As a pretty picky person, I would have to say my expectations were exceeded. If there is any constructive criticism I could give it would be to make the boxes a little wider for the hard case guitars. The fit was so tight, it scuffed up the edges of the case pretty bad.
