Sold Out $ 275.00
First of all I need to state I am a certified Luthier so I know what I am talking about when it comes to guitars. Now onto the Oliver Mahogany Live I received today. The size is perfect. First I changed the strings to Elixer 80/20 Bronze extra light gauge as I am older and need low tension. After the string change, I adjusted the truss rod and found one fret needed filing due to buzzing-so it got filed and polished after careful measurement with a special designed micrometer. Next step was a truss rod adjustment as needed after the string gauge change. There was a few finish blemishes I touched up. All of this turned this guitar into a remarkable instrument with a great sound and I recommend this guitar to everyone who is looking for a great guitar for the dollar. The Fishman Sonotone, even though not deluxe, does a very good job of making this guitar sound great amplified. Gig bag is nice. This is my fourth Orangewood and may not be my last.
My sister has the regular Oliver mahogany and it sounds pretty good. I wanted to get this one but it's been sold out for so long..I've gotta start my lessons soon, so I'll probably just get a fender for beginners. I'm looking for something with a rich sound that isnt too pricey.
I'm enjoying my new Oliver Mahogany Live very much, I love how it looks and sounds, thank you, Orangewood, for creating such a great instrument :) I've made a video unpacking of it on my YouTube channel (not sponsored in any way): https://youtu.be/7EwnnZvxoyk
