Orangewood Hudson - Great guitar

I want to give my thoughts on this guitar, and I hope that my experience with this guitar will encourage others to give orangewood a try.

Pros

1. This is the first time that I've played a guitar that was all solid wood, Torrified Spruce top, and premium construction for the price. So #1 is premium construction

2. Sonically, playing this guitar gave me chills. It has the tone of a guitar that is 30 years old or older. It has a lot of depth, but it brings out more Mid-range tone, so the guitar sounds very rich and full.

3. The action on the guitar is amazing. I have arthritis and carpel tunnel in both hands, and with the action being low, as well as having a very comfortable neck, this guitar is incredibly easy to play.

4. The Grover tuners are amazing as well. They turn very easy, and tuning is a breeze, and the guitar stays in tune very well.

Cons

Honestly I don't see a lot of things on this guitar to really complain about, however I'll give my thoughts on what this guitar features that's not exactly a con, as well as share a small cosmetic flaw.

1. I'm used to gloss bodied guitars. The gloss makes the guitar look nicer, plus I feel it gives added protection to the wood, but I'm a fan of a satin finish neck. Having an all satin finished guitar, feels quite difference to me, so it's something I'll need to get used to.

2. There is a small cosmetic flaw on the creme binding going around the headstock, where the binding wasn't sanded to completely be flush with the wood, and there is a tiny piece of flash as a result. Not a big deal though.

Other thoughts

This is a great guitar for the money. I decided to see what the hype was about with orangewood guitars and I'm glad I made this purchase, despite the cons I stated above. I think orangewood will continue on improving their guitars in terms of Quality Control, as well as listening to customer feedback to improve their guitars as well as expanding tonewood selection.

I recommend the Orangewood Hudson. Great guitar for the price point.

Third Orangewood

This is my third Orangewood guitar. I gave the first two to my grandsons who both want to play and are at a good age to be diligent about it. These guitars give these two boys quality with great sound. I hope they stay with it.
