after receiving this on an Ebay auctiontio. there was some trouble receiving it. I did receive it, its a Gem worth keeping.
I was in love from the moment I opened the case and laid my eyes 👀 on this beautiful mahogany guitar. The case is premium as well and is the icing on the cake if you ask me. Needed a quick tune up and that was it. Setup on mine was perfect for me right out of the box. Very easy to play and no fret buzz at all. The Grover tuners are excellent and help this guitar stay in tune. Not a huge fan of the Ernie Ball Earthwood strings that come on it but they will do for now. I like Daddrio EJ16 and will change to them when these strings are dead. I’m no guitar expert but this guitar looks and sounds like a $1500 guitar to me. I am very happy with my purchase and feel like I got a great deal. Fits me perfectly and I will have this guitar until the die I die. Absolutely love it.
Also want to mention that Orangewood is a great company and have been super professional and very attentive. They are right on top of things and their customer service is top notch. It’s hard to come by service like this nowadays and I am very appreciative of that. Many thanks to the Orangewood team. The guitar you sent me went above and beyond my expectations. Definitely can feel and see the love that was put into designing and crafting this beautiful guitar. Don’t hesitate to give Orangewood guitars a chance, they deserve it.
I recently ordered an Oliver for my teenage son and was impressed overall with it. So I was curious to see what their high end models were like so I ordered the Ava Mahogany. I can’t put it down. I have a bunch of high end guitars. I am enjoying playing this guitar more than my others and I have vintage guitars from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. This guitar has great warmth, balance, and sustain. Also suprprising projection from a small body acoustic. It is lush sounding. It came set up relatively well. The action at the first fret was perfect but a bit high at the 12th fret. I tweaked the truss rod to lower the action and for a little less relief and it is definitely more playable. I like 2/32’s at the 12th and it came 3/32’s. With a truss rod adjustment, I was able to get it only slightly lower but it was enough to satisfy me in terms of playability. I will be buying a Hudson Live as my next guitar. Orangewood, how about making an archtop guitar line!
