I am attempting to change out the strings on my Orangewood Oliver cedar, and the holes for the bridge pins are to big around and allow the pins to sit too deep. I cannot pull the pins out with a standard bridge pin removal tool. I literally busted open my knuckle (never had anything like this in 20 years of playing) and had only one option. Cut the strings and go in through the sound hole with pliers and push the pins out from the opposite side. I hope I just got a lemon, because if this is the way they all are, I will never buy another (I have nearly a dozen guitars myself along with two young girls who are aspiring players and want guitars as well).
I really love how well everything else is made on this guitar. The frets are dressed better than my Taylor 110CE, which is definitely saying something.
I want to like this guitar, but I have never seen anything like this. This is an unforgivable faux pas for a guitar manufacturer to make.
Right out of the box, I was very impressed with this guitar. The sound was crisp and when plugged in, it has such a big, full sound! Very impressed and excited to use it live!
I can not adequately put into words how impressed I am with this guitar. I've been playing guitar for 16 years and have played/owned dozens of acoustic guitars including Martin's and Taylors and I must say that my Oliver Cedar plays just as well as some of the more expensive acoustics out there. It feels, plays, sounds and looks like one of my old Taylor's but I only paid half the price for this one. It's simple yet elegant and sounds beautiful. Orangewood is my new favorite and this won't be the last one I buy I can tell you that! I recommend Orangewood for beginners and experienced players alike! Thank you Orangewood!
Elegant and solid shape, powerful sound. The fishman pickup does a great job. Awesome price!
