Sounds a lot like a $4000 Collings I owned years ago.
No complaints. Sounds good, plays good, looks good.
I received my Ava Torrefied Spruce Live this morning and found it to be a great solid wood guitar. I changed the strings to Elixir Extra Light 80/20 because the Ernie Ball strings did not sound good on this guitar and I much prefer the Elixir. The strings were also high as it was on all the Orangewood guitars I have bought in the past. Some saddle adjustment along with truss rod adjustment brought the strings down which needed to be done anyway after string replacement. While the strings were off the guitar the frets got a polishing to get rid of a small amount of roughness. Now this guitar is top notch! The hard case is great and a very nice case. It has a very balanced tonality so don't compare it to a Martin dreadnaught that is very heavy in bass response. This guitar shines with great tonality in the balanced range it was built to project. Been playing for 59 years and also I am a luthier so know my way around guitars just a little bit. Have spent less money for 6 Orangewoods, medium to high end, than the cost of a 314 or 414 series Taylor and still received great quality. Can't go wrong with that.
It is perfect, just what I imagined it would be.
The only thing is that there is a little buzzing on 6th string after the 8th fret. But other than that, I’m happy to be in the Orangewood family too.
The playability, tone, and construction are on par with instruments that cost much more. As time goes on, the tone will get even better. Setup was spot on. Electronics on this guitar work well. So far, it’s been a great experience to have this guitar.
