This was my first time buying a guitar on my own, (had a hand-me-down from my big brother). All I can say is thank you orange wood for igniting a fire in me to play guitar and really love the instrument. You guys clearly care for your guitars, they are packaged great, came on time, just all around a great experience. The echo is a beautiful guitar, and sounds great for the price. All I can is cop this thing right now!
You've very welcome! Thank you for choosing Orangewood! Enjoy your Echo.
Just got my used but not abused Echo Live dreadnaught. Came with Earthwood strings. Playing anything from John Denver, Paul Simon, Billy Joel. This morning playing along with random slow bluegrass songs on Youtube and gospel bluegrass. HOLY COW! Even if you don't like bluegrass, if you have an Orangewood...grab it and play along to one. This guitar really shines. Very pleased!
I was looking for a dreadnought guitar that wasn't very expensive (the economy and all). I have been looking at Orangewood and watching reviews for quite a while now. Finally decided to pull the trigger on the Echo. So glad I did. I haven't stopped playing it since I got it. Sounds awesome, played perfectly right out of the box. You can tell they are set up before they ship. Just a few tweaks to tune it and I was off. Amazing that you can get this quality at their prices. I am just waiting for them to restock so I can get another one. Going to get the Sage Torrefied Spruce Live when that is available. In the meantime I am going to sell a couple acoustics I don't really play anymore to get this.
Thanks for the review! We're so glad that you are happy with your Echo!
I purchased the "Almost Perfect" Echo Live during the recent sale and for the life of me, I can not figure out what makes it's not PERFECT. I can't find a single flaw, and I am pretty OCD, so I would notice if something was obvious! Long story short, I couldn't be happier. It sounds great, it looks incredible and I just love it. If I were to dive deeper, I do think that the neck is a bit skinnier than my non-electric Echo. I liked the more full feeling neck on the standard Echo so I am missing that a little if I'm being critical. Also the standard Echo neck feels slightly more rough and unfinished (not in a bad way) and the Echo Live neck feels a bit more finished and polished. Think matte vs glossy. That's how I would describe it. Not stark differences, but subtle. That's the only thing that I have noticed so far though aside from some coloring differences (which is to be expected). Overall though. I am very happy with my purchase and a fan of the brand!
I just rec'd my Echo. It was an almost perfect model. I cannot find a flaw. It is beautiful. It is spruce solid topped, has nice bird's eye spots, it is also quilted, alot like maple. It came setup nice. Action set 2 mm, low/ med. Nice tone. No frett burs. This is my 3rd OW guitar, I have a Rey and a Dana. The Echo looks alot more expensive than it is. All I can say is get ya one.
