I never heard of these guitars before until spring of 2020. Was looking for a new acoustic and almost bought one but the price was too good to be true, so I bought a Seagull. All year I kept coming back. Just purchased the Rey Spruce as a "don't care kind of guitar", mainly the price was there for it to be that type of guitar. Well, it arrived today and man what a deal! I went up and down and all around this guitar looking for flaws that would put at this price. Found one. The binding is perfect except one spot where it ends on the back. There is like a 1/16 of a gap. lol. My only other complaint is the fretboard is not rosewood, but that seems to becoming more common nowadays. Honestly, at GC or another music store this guitar is easily going to run in the mid $300 range. It's beutiful, sounds terrific (just played it for almost 2hrs), and best of all - it came set up! Beautiful action. Not sure of the nut and bridge, but they look like bone, not plastic. Not sure of the tuners, but they seem quality. Another plus - Layered Spruce and Mahogany for $135!! Not plywood with a laminate maple or spruce, ect. It wasn't in tune when it arrived. I read a lot of that as a downside on guitars bought online. It only traveled across the county during winter, and sat outside my house all day until I got home. Honestly, I feel guitars shouldn't be tuned while transported to keep stress off the neck, but just my opinion. Oh, the gigbag, it's a solid gigbag. Purchased the starter kit as well for $20. Can always use another capo and strap. Capo is decent, strap is decent, tuner seems alright (didn't use it), and comes with picks (too big for my liking, but not stiff as a board which I like). Starter kit is worth the $20. My next acoustic will be from these guys and I know I won't be disappointed
Sounds nice and bright. It was close to being in tune out of the box which was a first for me. Overall for the price I don’t regret buying it.
I love the guitar .... Best thing I have purchased In the past 5 years. Better then some guitars that cost me more money.
This is quite a guitar. It would be at three times the price. The fit and finish. I couldn’t find any problems or issues with the construction at all, which is very surprising. This doesn’t sound anything like an inexpensive guitar. It exhibits none of the boxy midrange qualities I might expect. Very warm round woody tone that belies it’s meager price. I made a small adjustment on the truss rod to lower the action a bit, but overall it is an exceptional value, I’m enjoying playing this guitar quite a bit - This is exactly the same situation with my Oliver Mahogany guitar. It’s got a different quality of sound, no less impressive in it’s construction , sound and playability. Well done Orangewood.
