I left my original review here on 8/26/21. Everything is still A-OK on my Oliver Jr. My only comments to Orangewood are these: For a thin bodied guitar, you should use warmer sounding strings .. 80/20 bronze (that came on the guitar) are bright and those strings make this guitar sound more "tinny" than it has to be ... my preferred strings are D'Addario coated phosphor bronze strings (EXP16 ... .012-.053) ... these (or any phosphor bronze strings) are a more balanced (warm tone) string and would do this small bodied guitar wonders. Secondly, my guitar did go out of tune after playing it. I knew the problem, but a newbie might not. Your tech did NOT stretch the strings out. I did and no problem ... your tuners work fine.... just trying to save you some returns Orangewood. Overall I am very pleased with my guitar.
I have had the Oliver Jr. Mahogany for several days now. Overall, I like it and it fills a need for me (I wanted a second small guitar). I have 5 acoustics and 2 electrics. I'm a solid beginner to mild intermediate player. Here's my basic run-down on the guitar:
- beautiful materials and finish (some slightly sharp/scratchy frets, but no big deal)
- no flaws in the set up or build; seems to have very good quality control
- play-ability (low action; nice fret board/material)
- pretty good case
- shipping to an adjacent state took ~2 weeks; this is probably on FedEx, but what should have been 3 days took a while; this actually doesn't bother me much
- sound quality is thin; it's a small guitar and the sound is definitely good enough for what I want the guitar for, but it is a little ukulele-like; the dimensions are remarkably similar to a Taylor GS Mini (I own one; the Taylor is 2 1/2 times the price) except for the depth of the body; the dimensions, materials, and build are otherwise so similar that this seems to be the only possibility for the difference in sound
So...overall I'm really happy with the guitar. I am considering getting a solid wood guitar from Orangewood in the future. I anticipate that it will be very good.
