Arrived in a great hard shell case. Wonderful setup with a good neck. I’m used to playing louder dreadnaughts so I’m getting used to the sound it’s more mid range but even after two weeks it seems to be opening up. Great Grover tuners, stays in tune. I’m in joying the smaller lighter body.
I previously purchased a Sage Mahogany. I like that one quite a bit. The Ava is not as good. It does not sound as good and it had a big line down the middle on the top that was not pleasing to the eye, at least not to mine. If I had seen this in a retail setting I would not have even tried it. Luckily Orangewood is taking it back.
I knew soon as I played it, it was a keeper. The sound is good, has a solid back, and it will get better sound as it ages. I can just tell, being playing guitars for 20 years, and I would definitely recommend this guitar
