Exceeded Expectations!

I have been a guitar player for over 20 years, and this is the first time I have purchased an acoustic guitar sight unseen. After watching countless reviews on YouTube (some of which were lauding the guitar, and some were mixed...), I decided that the Torrefied Hudson was the one for me. I play primarily in a church setting, leading worship. The guitar shipped super quick, the company was communicative throughout the entire process, and the guitar finally arrived. Yes, it is constructed in China (usually a cause for concern), but upon opening the case I was VERY pleasantly surprised. Even after shipping all the way from CA to NJ in the freezing cold, the guitar was almost perfectly in tune right out of the case. After a quick tuning, I started playing and reviewing. The construction quality is very good. Bindings look great, nut and saddle are set just fine. Frets look great and the setup from Orangewood was pretty on point. The case is of a decently high quality and the guitar fits in there snug as a bug. The unplugged sound of the guitar is very good! Not as warm as my Martin D-15, but close...and with much more projection. Decent lows, great mids and very punchy highs. This guitar sounds very good unplugged as an acoustic guitar. But then I plugged it in to my Fishman Acoustic amp...and wow. The L.R. Baggs Anthem system really is what it is chalked up to be. Once I had my tone blended and dialed in, I was in love. This guitar is most likely going to be my daily driver, replacing my trusty 15 year old Martin. Thank you Orangewood! You have made a fan out of me for sure. I can't really find any fault in this guitar, especially at its price point, and my gamble of buying an acoustic guitar sight unseen paid off. I am very pleased! I would recommend this guitar to anyone looking for that perfect blend of acoustic usability and liver performance sound.

We are so glad to hear that you are enjoying your new Hudson, Ron!

Way beyond my expectation

I bought this guitar after a concerns of hauling my irreplaceable 1961 Gibson J-50 to gigs. I thought that for under $1000, I would get an unimpressive but adequate guitar that I would feel better about potentially damaging or losing at gigs. What I got in my Hudson TS is so far beyond my expectation. The guitar looks, feels and plays like a much more expensive guitar. The workmanship is flawless, no glue squeeze, nothing misaligned or ill fitting. The guitar is amazing for the money or even for twice the price.
Very impressed.

Warm and Tender

Sounds great! Especially in alternate tunings. It’s very well balanced and articulate.

Trying to return

The case is kinda the best part. The Hudson live did have increasingly better tone once it arrived. All notes on the G string above D are flat by a lot. I found that to b totally unacceptable.

Hudson Torrefeild Spruce Live the new”Work horse”

Absolute work horse for any singer /song writer. Smooth mids and high and low
Es are butter. Can’t put it down : that’s always a good thing. Thanks Orangewood for keeping the tag price down where us normal folk can reach it.
