I really love this guitar

I really love this guitar, she plays so beautifully and I really enjoy the feel of it. Its my first nylon guitar and there is some adjustment but I am really enjoying it as I adjust. I think the sound is beautiful and I feel quickly bonded with this guitar.
I had a few issues with the delivery, which was not Orangewood's fault at all, but their customer service was superb. They were responsive, even over the holidays and extremely helpful. Thank you so much!

Mason nylon guitar

I was very impressed with the construction and quality of the build of the guitar. It certainly is beautiful in appearance! The sound quality through amplification is excellent however when played just acoustically I found it lacking. Majority of my playing is done unamplified. The instrument is being returned in absolute perfect condition. Thank you, Steve Hawkes

Mildly Disappointed

After buying a Morgan Live and loving it, I am , so far (after one week) , disappointed in my Mason Nylon Live). I am aware that the strings take longer to break in than metal strings but these strings go out of tune just playing a couple of notes. And I play the guitar a couple of hours a day. I don't know if it is the tuners or the strings or both. They are better than the first two days but that's the best I can say.
The sound is nice and the Fishman EQ makes the guitar sound even better. The Fishman tuner is so-so.
I had to tighten the truss rod quite a bit when I received the guitar because the neck was not close to being straight. But that helped lower the action which was quite high (4mm) when the guitar arrived.

Thank you for letting us know about this, Michael! As the strings on your instrument are brand new, they will likely take a couple weeks (possible longer for nylon strings as you said) to stretch and settle. Something that will help speed up this process, is gently tugging up on each string a few times, then re-tuning the instrument - you can repeat this multiple times until the strings start to settle. If you have any questions or if you are still experiencing issues after a couple weeks, please reach out to us at

Mason Nylon Cedar Review

This guitar is beautiful and plays so well. Nice bright sound that is wonderful for acoustic performances and is a big plus that there’s a pick up on it in order for it to be amplified.
