I am blown away by the value of this guitar. It truly sounds amazing, and the quality is top notch. It is hard to purchase a guitar without the chance to play it first, but I assure you that Orangewood guitars sound and play amazing.
Awesome bang for your buck. Mids sounds super clean, feels amazing, looks amazing. Can’t put it down.
Great guitar. Excellent sound. This could have cost much more and still been a good deal.
I have no idea how they do it for the money. Quality binding and purfling, good finish, ebony bridge and bridge pins, TUSQ nut and saddle, vintage Grover-style tuners, abalone inlays down the back of beautiful solid Pau Ferro back and sides.
This guitar would be a good deal at $2,000 USD when you compare it to the other stuff on the market, at the current price it's practically robbery.
Tonally speaking it's very bright and somewhat lacks bass, but if you go play very expensive guitars you'll find that's actually quite common for spruce tops made from hard body back and sides (rosewood, maple, walnut, pau ferro, etc.). I personally like a really bright guitar because on recordings guitars always end up sounding darker and bassier than in person (due to proximity effect). To my ear it sounds like a high-end Martin D-35, which I also own and have compared together.
If you're looking for a bright and somewhat even midrange response from a guitar, especially for recording or playing live gigs then I highly recommend the Sierra. This guitar has no business being as cheap as it is for the quality. The workmanship is very good all throughout and I will almost certainly be buying their all mahogany guitar next.
We are so glad to hear that you are enjoying your Sierra!
It's a birthday gift for my husband (Halloween) who got your Oliver Mahogany last year and hasn't put it down since. Looking forward to hearing this one too!
