Hello,I wanted to take a minute and give you my opinion of my recent purchase. I am now the owner of the Hudson dreadnought guitar. I chose this model because of the very favorable reviews that it, and all the rest of your instruments have received, and the fact it is one of your higher end guitars.I have played it now for a total of a few hours and it is a very nice sounding guitar with smooth action and plays well all the way up the neck. It has a very clear voice, honestly, however, I was expecting more projection and presence. The workmanship is quite good and it is a very nice looking instrument. The tail piece is cut very sharp on the corners and in my opinion may need some work to relieve these sharp edges. I hope to get many years of enjoyment from this guitar, but I wonder, if I had been given the opportunity to compare this guitar to your other models before hand, would I have still bought the Hudson or a lesser expensive model with basically the same sound.
I was looking for an affordable solution to a high-quality sounding guitar. When I received my Hudson, the guitar was already set up and sounded great. I've had this guitar for three weeks so far and for $645, I can't image you can get much better than this – not to mention the high-quality tolex carrying case. Thanks Orangewood!
My main go to Acoustic instrument is the new Taylor 714CE with the V-Bracing. That guitar is a Grand Auditorium body style and I was looking to purchase a new all solid wood dreadnought to complement my Taylor but without the Taylor price. My research led me to Orangewood. Having played over a 100 hours now on Hudson (and I switched the strings to the Santa Cruz Parabolic Tension Strings) and I really couldn’t be happier with this purchase. This guitar has its own personality and likes to be expressed. I’m not saying that this guitar is better than my Taylor - its just different with different tones. This was an excellent way to grow my guitarsenal (guitar collection) without breaking the bank. I will certainly be purchasing another solid wood offering from Orangewood. I’m thinking Ava wood look and sound great in my house! She may be next! Thank you orangewood for making quality instruments afordable!
Is all that I expected and more. The sound compares favorably to my 3500 hundred dollar Gibson!
My Dad bought my guitar for me when I was 12 after a nun at the school I attended told him I had a passion. It didn’t matter if I was any good ( and I think he was hoping I would Stop playing on the baby grand at odd hours ) We walked through the whole store with me trying to see if I liked any of them. I loved them all. Then my Dad looked at the guy sitting behind the counter and asked him which was his favorite. The young man slowly picked the one up that was leaning against him and handed it over to my Dad ever so gently. I sat on the floor, played a couple of chords and it felt right. My dad was a powerful and wealthy man. We grew up with bodyguards but I think that it gave the impression when one would would walk in a store with us that we were being tailed by law enforcement. But regardless Dad always wore khakis and moccasins and white t-shirts when ever he went shopping. The guy working there apologized for not showing it to us but it cost $1500.00 and most parents would never consider that expense for a kid. The sales guy kept glancing at the man standing near the door looking like Will Smith as he did in MIB. Sales people would frequently think we didn’t have much money because of my father’s casual appearance. But Dad paid in cash, as alway. Then on an afterthought he started asking the guy what else I might need. I have to give that young man credit without ever taking his eyes off MIB man at the door ( I believe he was waiting for the bust to go down because of the obviously counterfeit cash that was just used to pay for my guitar)I ended up with a beautiful case, a selection of picks, a strap and a capo.I lost that guitar in 2005 with four dogs in the House my husband and I built ourselves to an arsonist. This guitar reminds of that first one so much. So close to the sound and I have very sore fingers again. It has taken me years to even consider replacing that guitar. I don’t know why I chose you guys but it just felt right and to have the same it...
