What a Beauty !!!

Been following Orangewood guitars since they opened shop and marveled at the reviews that were being given. After almost 3 years I couldn't wait any longer to see for myself. The Duke was the tipping point...I wanted a Jumbo and I wanted to own an Orangewood. Been playing sine 1969 at 13 years of age and have owned many guitars...The Duke is an excellent example of being able to own an affordable HIGH quality musical instrument that looks, feels, plays and sounds like a guitar worth 3 times the cost. BRAVO !!!

IMPRESSED!!

OK I dont usually write reviews but I couldnt resist. I have had many guitars over the years, and I am very impressed with my Duke. At first I thought it sounded a little thin but after I put my Elixers on it, all was good. this guitar rocks! Beautiful, plays easily and sounds great. I read all the reviews online etc and was still a little skeptical but tghis guitar is my new best friend I love it!!! Great job Orangewood!! Hoping to get another one soon!!

Meh

I'll start with saying up front that this really is a nice guitar and is built very well. I'm impressed with orangewood as a whole but this particular model isn't for me.
I was in the market for a jumbo expecting a very full , clear sound with strong bass and midrange. The Duke has so so bass and seems to have spots in the midrange where tone and volume dissipate very quickly. Simply put it just didn't meet my expectations. And to be fair, my expectations may as much of problem as anything.
All and all, this IS a nice instrument and very beautiful. But if I could do it again I would've purchased the Hudson.

The Duke

I am so pleased with this guitar it has a good feel, sounds great and it can be louder than a parlor guitar. However I was going to send it back so that I could buy the more expensive model. I just couldn't give up "The Duke"! I haven't had this guitar in the bag since the day I got it! I have Gibson 125 (1951) Gibson Les Paul (double cutaway) Fender Strat , Breedlove, Taylor, Gretsch, and a Landola (handmade in Finland). The guitar I have played the most since the day I got it was the ORANGEWOOD "The Duke"! I enjoy all my guitars but this was the only guitar I have bought site unseen (risky) and spent pawn shop prices. GET ONE AND PLAY
