Awesome guitar value.

I own a classical nylon guitar and a martin dreadnought. I also have les Paul's and strats, and some schecters.

I have to say this one gets more playtime than the rest at the moment. Ive had it for a month now, and it doesn't feel like I bought a novelty guitar thats fun for a little bit. This one is a keeper.

I not plugged it in, so I cannot speak for the PA.

The acoustic sound is great and well balanced. Each string rings audibly during chords, and is clear. It does not get muddled when playing Barre chords in lower tunings, or when trying to play individual high notes. The intonation was setup perfect, and kept in tune after a string replacement.. I do recommend high or Xtra high tension strings. It helps if you plan on playing upper frets and prefer the feel of an electric type neck.

The neck itself is great, and the string spacing feels very natural and intuitive. I struggle from switching between a thin strat style neck, to a 2inch classical.

I do want to point out that this guitar does have amazing qualities of both traditional flat pick acoustics, and does a good job of allowing you blend styles.

I looked at cordoba, guild, and Alvarez guitars in this price point, and chose orangewood without being able to play one. It was worth the gamble.

There were some minor stain blemishes, from misaligned taping by the fretboard binding on my guitar, but that is something I see goofed on many non-custom production guitars.

I recommend this guitar for someone who appreciates the feel of a traditional flat-top acoustic, but loves the sound of nylon.

Amazing Guitar!!!

Absolutely beautiful Cedarwood with beautiful reflective shell around the sound hole and my first nylon string guitar I am 100% satisfied and everyone listening too!

Only the 3 lower strings are nylon, is that normal?

Good guitar at a good price

I don't know if this is the only available nylon string guitar designed from a steel string guitar but I'm glad I found it. It's a good guitar at a good price. It has a good sound both acoustic and plugged in, it's the best electronics I have found on a nylon string guitar. It plays really well everywhere on the neck. Thank you Orangewood, and thank you for good support after the sale too.
