Plays well, sounds good, some minor consmetic issues

The guitar feels great, fret ends are all nicely filed, action is good, neck is straight, looks good, sounds good. Hits *way* above price point (construction appears to be easily equal to my Taylor GS Mini Mahogany, at less than half the price). The body "back strap" pin striping/inlay (actually looks like it might be a decal under the clear coat) is not straight, roughly 1/4" out of line from the endpin to the neck heel. Minor issue no one else will likely notice, but I noticed it immediately.

Great!

Very high quality guitar. I have a Taylor big baby and I kinda forgot about it now that I have a Oliver jr.

Short arms big booba

I bought the Oliver mahogany Jr. because the dreadnaught I’ve had for 20 years is really hard for me to play. I am a short lady with sizable booba, so the body was too big and the neck was too long. This is perfect for me - my barred chords are sooo much easier, and the sound is honestly better than my other one. I’m super happy with this purchase. (I should mention I’m an amateur/hobby player - so the sound is amazing to me, but Im also not a “trained ear”)

New Oliver Jr Mahogany Live

..So it's been two weeks now since I received my new Oliver Jr Mahogany Live from Orangewood Guitars. I wanted to spend some time getting acquainted with it before I just fired off my opinions of it fresh out of the box. I am an old guy who has been playing/performing for decades but retired from live gigging in 2015 and pretty much just put away all of my "stuff." However, as a guitar player, I have always admired acoustic fingerstyle players and now have decided I want to try tackling that style more seriously. I thought the best way to start this journey would be on a 3/4 size shorter scale or "parlor" size guitar which I've always thought were pretty cool anyway, and on a model that wasn't going to break the bank..ie., I didn't want to spend more than three hundred bucks! So I researched several guitars in the size and price range I wanted and found the old saying "you get what you pay for" to be very much alive and well. After trying the Yamaha F Series offerings, the Fender C-100, the Gretsch Jim Dandy, an Ibanez PN12E, an Epiphone, and some others.. I didn't like any of them! So it looked like I was just gonna have to drop big bucks on a Taylor or a Martin or something like that in that price range to get any satisfaction. Before doing that though, I decided to take a chance on the Oliver Jr. Mahogany, of which I had seen several reviews on You Tube, etc., etc. I figured if I didn't like it I could send it back. Well, guess what? I'm keeping it! It looks great, I love the size, it sounds very good for a small guitar, even better than I thought it would, and after a tweak or two of the truss rod it plays great. Of course the Ernie Ball "medium light" strings were killing my fingers for the first week or so but I decided to leave them on to see I could get used to them which I eventually did and they seem fine now. I'll probably go to a lighter gauge when the time comes but for now I'm just gonna stick with the factory issue strings which Orangewood recommends. So while the Orangewood is not a Martin, Taylor, Zager, etc.,in my opinion, you cannot get a better value at a great price on a quality instrument than this Oliver Jr provides. I'm glad I gave Orangewood a shot and I'm definitely a satisfied customer. Sorry for the long review!

No apologies necessary, Dan. We appreciate your review and are glad to hear that you are loving your new Oliver Jr. guitar!
