I purchased a Sage Spruce without electronics and also purchased a Taylor 214ce. After playing both for a week, the Taylor went back. Both are fine instruments, but the Orangewood won out for its sound signature and solid all-wood construction. I’m now considering using the savings from the Taylor return to fund another Orangewood for my wife.
Just got mine today and can't be happier. A little truss rod adjustment and she was dialed in. Yes the action could be a little lower but I like that they leave room for adjustment. She plays like a dream and I don't want to set it down.. I have way more expensive guitars and this may be my new go to. It's not hype guy's try one out, you will not be disappointed!!!
