Everything about my experience with Orangewood has been stellar. From the customer service to the timely and thoughtful shipping to the packaging to the look, feel and sound of this fabulous guitar - you guys didn’t miss a note!
This guitar is beautiful, and sounds great. The acoustic sound is fantastic. A little warmer and purer than my Taylor 114ce. The LR Baggs Anthem pickup is better and worse than the Taylor ES2. The Anthem's bridge pickup sound worse than the ES2, but when it is blended with the internal condenser mic, it sound WAY BETTER than the ES2!
The reason I did not give five stars is because the first guitar they sent me had a tiny crack in the top wood just bellow the neck. They had me ship the guitar back at their expense, and sent me a new one. This was a total hassle, but in the end I am glad I didn't just ask for a return. For someone with patience and faith, this is a fantastic guitar!
No negatives. Electronics could have had a tuner.
Well made, feels nice in my hand, beautiful to look at! You simply can't find a similar guitar for the price! Thanks
My new Sage Torrefied Spruce Live surpassed my expectations on every level. It easily has the nicest, fastest neck of any acoustic I’ve ever played. The neck feels perfect in my hand. The action and intonation are exceptional. The sound of the guitar is beautiful. It’s exactly what I hoped for. The sound is so crisp and clean and tonally balanced. Even the hardshell case is awesome. I love everything about this guitar. It is so much nicer than more expensive guitars I’ve played by “fancier” and more recognized names.
