Okay so i found this company one day about a year ago and read all the reviews on their guitars and i decided to try one to see if all the hype was true. I am so glad I did!!! These guys put out an AMAZING guitar for a very consumer friendly price. I'm now on my third guitar from them and couldn't be happier with all three. This solid wood guitar for $650 is absolutely awesome. Fit finish and tone of this guitar rivals my $3000 Martin and it plays in my opinion just a tad bit better!!! I am a lifelong Orangewood fan from now on.
Played this guitar right out of the box. Like other reviews this guitar plays beautifully. The action was set at 2mm which was excellent for my playing style. I own a Martin and Takamine that are more expensive modles than the Hudson. The Hudson plays as well as these guitars do. If your looking for a less expensive guitar, this is it, look no further. It has ll the tone and volume you'll need.
Beautiful Guitar - Tone - Fit and Finish - well above the price of admission.
I find that open chords are large, grand and expansive - It is about 12 to 14 second sustain - It's really nice. Drop D can be thunderous fun.
If you must know - what does it most sound like? A Martin - or a Gibson - a Taylor ???
The answer is yes - It could honestly be any of them - That's not a cop out - But kinda Martinish on chords but definitely that thick crunchy Gibson midrange as you work up the neck. It's just fun.
So while it meets and exceeds what I was expecting, I must say there are a few surprises with this guitar.
The Case. -It is exceedingly nice and plush - solid and classy
The easy volume as you work up the fat ebony fret board - it really gushes tone on the single notes so well. And you don't have to push it.
Orangewood logo on the headstock - this is really well done and understated in its presentation -
The quality of the mahogany one piece neck - the grain is so very pretty and the satin finish is as nice as I have seen - the tuners are just solid open gear grovers - and fit the whole vibe.
And it smells.... Good. - if you don't know- smelling your guitar is therapeutic.- it is is completely normal human behavior. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Have no reservations.
I'm keeping it - even after string changes - and the honeymoon period has worn off -this thing just has MOJO and it's a keeper. My curiosity has paid off - Nice job gentlemen. I would have paid more.
Not all guitars are equal, and that seems especially apparent in the lower end of the guitar spectrum. But please don't let the price tag on this guitar deceive you. The Hudson plays as well (if not better) than several of my $4k acoustics. The action is smooth, the neck is refined, it keeps good intonation high up the neck, and the tone is a healthy mixture of warmth and presence. When mic'ed in the studio, there's no heavy EQ work needed to "fix it." And the dreadnought body leaves nothing to be desired as far as volume. Seriously, this sucker can pro-JECT. But it's also incredibly intimate. When plucked gently, it coos like a lover. I highly recommend this guitar. It was love at first strum.
