I bought the brooklyn model on a whim. Been wanting a new acoustic for a while. Decided on this due to the fact that if I didnt like it I'd be able to return it and go buy something different. I wont be returning it because this guitar is amazing. The craftsmanship is impressive, I was amazed at the beauty of the thing. I didnt think it could possibly sound as good as it looked, but it sounds amazing. I'm extremely happy with my purchase! If you came here due to youtube reviews, it's not all hype, try it yourself.
I am a retired luthier and have reviewed guitars in the past for others. I intentionally did not share that info with Orangewood. In the past, when I did share the info, the guitar I received was the "pick of the litter" from the company. I cannot say enough good about the Brooklyn I received out of the box. The construction - which I inspected inside and out, is without flaw. A beautiful guitar. The parts are quality items and are placed with care from frets, to tuners, to nut to bridge saddle, not to mention the inlay on the fingerboard and the beautiful finish. Everything is as it should be. It has great tone and plays beautifully. I did not need another guitar, having Taylors, Martins, Breedloves and Fenders. This Orangewood holds its own with the best of them. I am shocked. I showed it to three other luthiers and professional players for their opinion of its value. All said they would value it at $900 and above. They were shocked. I highly recommend the Brooklyn and look forward to reviewing others.
This is my third Orangewood. I wanted the slightly smaller Brooklyn just for sitting around playing not for gigging. Not as much bass as the bigger GA or Dread, to be expected. It came well set up but I’ll likely dress the frets when i change the strings. My Mason and Morgan have both been gigged a lot over the summer and did a great job...I figure they deserve a rest when Im home just noodling around. All three combined cost less then a Taylor 214 so yea there’s that....
For the price, this guitar is absolutely awesome! It definitely exceeded my expectations. The neck inlays make the guitar look very beautiful. All in all this guitar is lovely and very affordable, I will definitely recommend the Brooklyn to my friends!
Received my Brooklyn acoustic about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I bought this to take to work as I didn't want to leave one of my two Taylor guitars in my office. Problem is, it's almost too nice to take to work. While I was very apprehensive about buying a guitar online - without first seeing an playing it - the finish on the guitar is perfect, and after a change to D'Addario XT Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings (custom light) I could not believe the tonal quality, the volume, and the sustain for a guitar at this price point. The setup was almost perfect right out of the box. If you are looking for terrific value in a concert-style guitar, I think you would be extremely hard-pressed to find a better buy than the Orangewood Brooklyn. It even comes with a really well-built gig bag with a plush lining. This was my first Orangewood, but it certainly won't be my last.
