It's totally worth the hype.
The only complain is that the action is too high for me. But I can always adjust it. I might use custom light strings.
and there was a couple of slight cosmetic damages but that does not really bother me at all.
All in all a good guitar. Tuners, preamp, bridge, saddle pins are not that great. Can't expect too much for the price. Will be great if Orangewood has better customer service, at least for questions from customers.
I have played guitar for fifty years. Play a coiple hours a day. I play and petform classical fusion stuff but was looking for an affordable acoutic electric to add a different demension to my compositions. An internet seach lead me to Orangewood. My Morgan Mahogony Live is exquisite. Stong brilliant tone with great sustain. Smooth action out of the box. The nuance i was hoping for when plugged in is what you would expect from a much more seasoned guitar. Can't put it down. These guys are the real deal. Can't image what their higher end models must sound like. Very cool guitar.
