I've had my Morgan for a couple of weeks now. I have to say that I am generally pleased with the quality and the setup, and very pleased with the sound. I think this guitar is a great value. I recently spent the day at my local GC store trying out about a dozen guitars in prices ranging from $400 dollars to $3000 dollars. None of them impressed me instantly as much as the Morgan did. I have been looking for a guitar with a nice full open sound. Every one of the Taylors and Martins I tried sounded dead and muffled to me. Of course my local GHC does a terrible job of keeping stings fresh and setting up their demos.
Anyway, the Morgan has the sound I was looking for. Really like the sound and playability. But, it is a $275 guitar so there are a few long term concerns. First, the saddle seems to already be shaved quite low, which accounts for the nice setup and playability right out of the box. I'm afraid there isn't much room for future adjustment. Second, the top seems slightly bulged and swollen to me. I'm afraid that this may cause the bridge to lift at some point. I'll just have to keep an eye on this for now. The top wood is nice but I do see some obvious bad spots in the grain that probably wouldn't have made it through QC at some of the major makers, but it's the sound and playability that matter most to me.
To sum it up, for the price I really do like this guitar. I'm glad I bought it and would do so again. If I were to go play it in the store along with the others I tried, I know I would have chosen the Morgan over most of the other much more expensive guitars. I am very likely going to order one of the solid wood models in the future, I'm just going sit tight for a few months until I see how this one holds up.
It is really a fun and satisfying guitar to play!
I had heard of Orangewood guitars from my brother a few months ago, and was immediately intrigued. I thought there's no way you can get the same quality as a Martin guitar for less than $600, and yet here I am with my $275 guitar that plays just as good if not better than Martin. amazing guitar and can't wait to get one of there ukuleles!!!!!! 11/10
the guitar is very nice and clean looking guitar that alone is worth the price the only problem is the setup it is lousy the action is high it will not stay in tune and the g,b. and high e are sticking on the nut also the low e and a have fret buzz I am going to contact orangewood and see what they will do so stay tuned.
I purchased the Morgan Spruce based on specs but there weren’t any really good video reviews out there for it and all the other reviews I found were from people who Orangewood sent the guitar to for free so I didn’t trust them. I decided to take a chance and it is an awesome guitar at any price. The first one I received had a few small finish imperfections in it that I did not like.i am very picky about my guitars, I don’t buy into the bull crap of “what do you expect for 275.00”. If I am buying something brand new for a cheap price it still better be perfect or I won’t buy it. I let Orangewood know about the issues and they paid to ship the guitar back and sent me a new guitar within 1 week. The new guitar was perfect and the set up was spot on. this guitar is just as good as my Taylor 210ce I have and as good as any other high end acoustic I have tried. The company is great, the product is great, it was super easy to do the transaction. The only thing I would say as an area for improvement is to make sure every guitar that leaves your factory is perfect and not just kind of perfect. Buying a guitar is a very personal thing and we rely on the people at Orangewood to send us the best version of their product since we can’t pick it out ourselves. I would definitely purchase another one or if they wanted to give me one to review for free I would take that too!
