I began playing on an old Fender acoustic for several months. The sound was average and my small hands made it difficult to play certain chords. So I decided to find a traveler guitar. As I was searching for guitars online I found Orangewood.
I ordered the Dana Spruce. The sound is great. The main problem with my particular guitar was the nut. It's made of plastic and and should be smooth but there's a small jagged edge at the G string. When I tune the G string I hear a bizarre beeping noise.
I don't consider it to be a big problem unless the string snaps. I have to tune all the strings everyday, also not a problem because the sound is great. I love the size of the Dana, it's like night and day compared to my Fender. It's so easy to play which is the main reason I bought it.
Bottom line is the quality sound of this guitar for the price is amazing.
I bought the Dana Mahogany as a camping guitar because taking my Martin DC-16 was getting too risky, not too mention burdensome. I didn't expect much, and just hoped it would stay relatively in tune and not have fret buzz like most cheap guitars do. Well, the Dana met those standards and then exceeded them beyond any rightful expectation for a guitar this cheap. The Dana is a joy to play and due to it's small size, it's very easy to play. It's really a perfect guitar for beginners because of this. And it sounds great, even next to my Martin - it doesn't disappoint. For the style of music I've been playing (Delta Blues) it almost sounds more appropriate because those old blues guitarists weren't generally playing top end guitars. And for it's size, it projects it's sound more than one would expect.
The intonation was perfect out of the box, and every string on every fret rings true. The action is just right, and made me realize I should probably lower the action on my Martin. The tuning knobs feel a little cheap, but they don't slip, which is what matters. The guitar is as light as feather too, so between that and it's size, it's really the perfect travel guitar. It also looks great in person. And on top of all of this, it comes with a quality soft-shell case. Really, this is an unbelievable deal and a quality guitar. I had to write this review because I've been blown away by the Dana. I absolutely love it.
Orangewood, I'm just waiting on your 12 string model.
I am very impressed with these guitars, tone quality, finish, fretting, tuners hold tune very well and over all set up very good right out of the box. This is a nice addition to anyone's arsenal of guitars many reviews are stating great for beginner, I have been playing guitars for 40 years these are nice peaces of equipment for any picker. The fret scale is 23-3/4" this gives the guitar a sweet slightly higher pitch and 14 frets showing outside the body this makes use of capo much nicer than only 12 frets showing. The guitar case is nicely padded with pockets and straps. Dringmann Gittare is rating the Dana Orange-wood Mini Guitars as best parlor size guitar purchase for 2019 :)
After buying A Morgan Mahogany Live, which was very impressed when I receive it, I have decided to buy second one for my son, and it was a perfect guitar with respect to it's price again, a small but powerful travel guitar, I am really impressed.
This mini guitar is not mini on sound or style! This is a great guitar for anyone needing a learning guitar, or like me, something to haul around anywhere. Surprisingly this mini makes a huge sound with the small body. The construction is great and very light weight. The materials used make the guitar look like something you paid big bucks for and the sound adds to that too. I'm very happy with the quality of the guitar, excellent bang for the buck!!! This is my second Orangewood guitar (Oliver Mahogany was 1st) and one again the Orangewood team was amazing. Easy purchase, fast deliver and I was kept informed during the whole process. Thanks again!
