Orangewood takes some of the worlds most famous acoustic guitars and designs their versions of these amazing instruments at an affordable price range as well as creates their own original models.
Furthermore, their instruments have awesome cosmetics, comfortable, playability, and tone. This is roughly based off a Gibson J-45 aka “The Work Horse”. Gibson’s version would easily be about 3k and I picked the Dolores Live up for $900 on sale. I wanted a nice comfortable attractive looking dreadnought that was dependable and reliable. The L.R Baggs Anthem pickup, which is top of the line right now for acoustics pickups, providing authentic clarity of the instrument itself when plugged in versus cheap electronics that ruin an acoustic guitar tone when played live comes installed equipped ready to plug in and play.
Moreover, their customer service and warranty is second to none. My first one arrived broken due to shipping and they helped me send it back as well as sent me a new one free of charge. Also, you get 30 days to play and decide whether you want to keep your instrument or exchange it for a different model or a full refund as long as you do not apply the pick guard and keep the original packaging.
Orangewood is a very successful company and hope they continue to create and innovate wonderful instruments at a price point that the average person can afford as well as be happy with for years to come.
Thanks for your review, William! Enjoy your Dolores Live!
Delores sounds even more beautiful that she looks. I have not put this guitar down for nearly two weeks since the day I got her. My Taylor guitar is a little jealous. lol
