This was my 2nd attempt to find an Orangewood guitar that I liked but the Ava's (mahogany or spruce) just didn't work for me. Ironically, I have a $200 Oliver that I do enjoy playing often but I think the Ava does not have the tone I'm looking for. I think Orangewood is a great company and they are making good guitars for the reasonable price they charge for them. They are also great to work with if there is a problem and their return policy is more than fair.
I’ve had my new guitar for just over a week and it’s kicked my need to play into overdrive. Love the guitar. I’m really loving the LR Baggs setup. It really takes the experience to the next level. Much love to Orangewood!
Have spent a couple of weeks now with my new Ava Live and am still amazed at the tone, feel, and build quality. This is an extremely fine instrument that can hold it's own against rivals like Taylor and Martin (I know because I own several of those as well) and the L.R. Baggs Anthem bests the expression systems in my Taylors and the Fishman system in my Martin hands down. Thanks for "cutting out the middleman" and delivering a quality guitar at a super affordable price!
Overall very good, clean workmanship
I'm a finish carpenter and I really appreciate the quality of workmanship of this Ava. and the L.R Baggs sounds finger licking good
Its a GREAT DESIGN ,I love it . The Martin Mahogany I played was WAY more expense and I sure the Ava is a lot better all the way around ,quite pleased!
Your customer service was excellent also. Thanks again , Sam H
