When I received the Oliver Jr Spruce, I was initially disappointed to find that it was buzzing all over the place and adjusting the tension rod did absolutely nothing. I contacted orangewood, they had me send a video of how it sounded, and then identified the problem with the guitar and offered several options that I could take. I decided to exchange it to give the guitar another chance and I’m happy to say I just received the new one and it sounds beautiful! Impressed by both the quality of the guitar as well as their service! Would recommend!
A solid 3/4 with nice warmth to it. Really enjoyable for playing at home, and like the versatility of acoustic-electric. It’s a nice addition to the lineup which offers some variety without breaking the bank.
The Oliver Jr is exactly what you'd expect at this price point. Nothing more, nothing less. Don't expect to get the beautiful matched wood grains you see on the guitars given to Youtube reviewers. The wood on the guitar I received was as expected - splotchy and cheap, clearly from the "whatever" pile in the factory. I don't have a lot of experience with 3/4 size guitars so I won't compare the tone to others. The bracing seems very heavy for the size, which may contribute to the boxy sound. The low E sting might as well not be there. That said, if I had this guitar as my first guitar 40 years ago I would have been perfectly happy. I bought it as a backyard/camp guitar and it fits that bill well. I actually wanted a guitar that I woudln't love. If it gets wrecked, no big deal. Sadly, the Orangewood fits that bill perfectly.
I was looking for a parlor sized guitar under $400, and stumbled upon this company from watching some musicians' reviews on YouTube. I am very impressed and have received lots of compliments in the week or so that I've had it, and the strings are starting to sound really good! The pickup is clean and the controls are easy to use and minimalistic. Very happy with the guitar and the gig bag as well.
I purchased this 3/4 Oliver Jr. Spruce Live guitar for my kids to learn. It produces great solid sound with or without the guitar amp. I used this also with our church's sound system and it gives great live sound. I highly recommend this for someone who likes good product for the very affordable price.
