I kind of thought maybe people were over hyping this guitar... THEY ARE NOT!!! Arrived on time .. almost still in tune after the 3,000 mile trip from Ca to eastern Pa. Wow it plays nice... set up is perfect. Sound is great. Intonation is about as close to perfect as you can get. Neck is very comfortable. Fishman EQ works wonderfully. Very nice finish and details. not even the tiniest burr on any fret, . Plays and sounds like a much more expensive guitar. I am an extremely satisfied customer. PS the gig bag is very good as well. If you are hesitant because the reviews sound too good to be true... don't be... I don't think you can find a better guitar for the money or for even a lot more money.
Better than needed to be with the price!
This is the third Guitar, and I love it, better than expected. Sounds good, very well made, and set up is perfect. Well Done.
Very pleased with the quality and sound of this guitar. The neck is amazing. Set up was spot on. The Fishman Flex Plus-T EQ was better than expected. Tweaked my amp to get the best sound and am extremely pleased with it. This is my second Orangewood, but probably not my last!
The guitar arrived on time. The setup out of the box was great. The pickup on it sounds better than the one on my expensive made-in-America dreadnaught. There was some _very_ minor finish wear around the soundhole and lower strap button when it arrived (as if someone had put a strap on it and played it...possibly as part of the QM or setup process?), but I've probably done worse to it already in the few weeks I've been playing it. The neck is beefier than I expected, but I don't mind beefy necks - just something to consider if you're expecting something slimmer/faster feeling (like a Taylor). The guys I play with are ready to put aside their own expensive made-in-America acoustics for an Orangewood after playing this one.
I would have gotten the Torrefied model, but the coupon code didn't apply to it, putting it *just* out of my budget.
All in all, a great value. Would buy again.
