I've had the guitar for almost 3 months and it sounds absolutely beautiful. On top of that, the mahogany wood really ties the everything together. I would totally recommend this guitar to anyone.
Having the Oliver Mahogany a few months now I feel I can give an honest review. I'm an acoustic player. Now, I do own an electric for when there's a need and have owned or played Strats, Teles, and LPs. I don't say this in a boastful way, just want you to know I'm familiar with guitars. I've been an acoustic player for over 30 years. When I say acoustic, I mean true acoustic. No electronics at all, except for when live I sit a mic in front of me. That all being said, this thing has a sustain that baffles my mind. "Magical" is the only way to describe it because it makes you do a double/triple take to be sure there are no hidden electronics. In all honesty, it ain't my favorite for rhythm. I have others I grab for that (maybe it needs a few more miles on it). But for soloing or finger-picking or blues melodies/runs? Wow! This thing is something special. I can't figure it out, or say enough good things about the way this thing sustains (wish my Tele sustained like this). If it's a fluke, and mine was made from enchanted wood, then lucky me. If it's Orangewood's design or craftsmanship, then lucky world. Wonderful job! Thank you!
I feel I need to add to my first review. When I first received my guitar it was so new it smelled very strongly like glue. Maybe they were cranking them out extra fast for the Christmas season. Anyway the sound was somewhat muffled and I reported as such in my review. But I'm happy to report on the two plus months I have owned the guitar the sound has blossomed and opened up beautifully. It now sounds as good of not better than my two Yamahas. It is very warm and rich. So if your guitar is new and the sound is not that great give it some time.
I'm an intermediate guitar player with 25 years of experience, having owned many guitars, primarily acoustic. I'm not a guitar snob, but I hate cheaply made guitars (who doesn't?). The hype about the Oliver and the really low price were an irresistible temptation - I had to try it! And wow, I'm not disappointed. This guitar is amazing regardless of the price. It looks fantastic, smells fantastic, was setup perfectly, and most importantly - it sounds great. It feels and sounds better than many $1000+ guitars I've demoed in guitar stores. I was hoping for a bit more low-end punch, but I'm sure it will improve with age as most guitars do. Two thumbs up overall!
