Great guitar

I have over 140 guitars in my collection. I have been playing for 52 years and play guitar every day. I own two Orangewood guitars and they are great guitars. The build quality is fantastic and I can get them to play just the way I like them with some minor tweaking. But I take EVERY guitar apart I buy so that is just me. This guitar played fine right out of the box. I am not sure how they build and sell these awesome guitars for the price but Good work and God speed to Orangewood for doing so. I will buy more and recommend them to other friends and players in my community. Thanks to all the staff at Orangwood that makes this all possible.

I really love this guitar

I really love this guitar, she plays so beautifully and I really enjoy the feel of it. Its my first nylon guitar and there is some adjustment but I am really enjoying it as I adjust. I think the sound is beautiful and I feel quickly bonded with this guitar.
I had a few issues with the delivery, which was not Orangewood's fault at all, but their customer service was superb. They were responsive, even over the holidays and extremely helpful. Thank you so much!

Mason nylon guitar

I was very impressed with the construction and quality of the build of the guitar. It certainly is beautiful in appearance! The sound quality through amplification is excellent however when played just acoustically I found it lacking. Majority of my playing is done unamplified. The instrument is being returned in absolute perfect condition. Thank you, Steve Hawkes
