I bought this after a recommendation by artist Mary Spender. I am so glad I did. I find myself playing it more and more each day. It’s a beautiful guitar and sounds full and robust. I love this guitar.
Imma get straight to the point this guitar is fucking insane. For those who do fingerstyle and strumming it’s a perfect hybrid of both, the ebony fingerboard is smoother than Michael Jackson’s smooth criminal and the strumming sounds like if two Martin guitars had sex. The overall aesthetic is gorgeous and the hardcase smells and feels like heaven. This guitar is so precious to me I have it hung on the wall so no one else can touch it or reach it but me. Are you still readying my review? Wtf are you taking so long for go buy the fucking guitar.
This is my first all-solid guitar, and I love it! The only high end guitars that I've played have been some Taylors that my uncle owns, and I believe this guitar can compete with them in terms of quality and sound. The sound is really balanced and warm. It's not too warm to the point where it's muddy. It has a really slight, pretty brightness to it. The fit and finish of my guitar were pretty much perfect. I couldn't find a single scratch/flaw/etc. Everything was well-aligned. It's really beautiful and pleasing to the eyes. I pick it up every chance I get! I swapped the strings for some Elixir Light Phosphor Bronze, and it sounded a lot better to me than with the factory strings. Might try the Martin treated life-span strings after my Elixirs die out. The hard case is also really nice and premium. I don't think you can find a better deal anywhere else in terms of quality for price + a case.
Some bad things about the Sage that I received was that the nut wasn't properly rounded/sanded. It keeps scratching me whenever I'm playing on that side of the fret board. I'll fix that later since it doesn't bother me that much. The action out of the box was also too high for my comfort of playing, but I managed to change it to my liking by simply adjusting the truss rod. Those are the only flaws that came with my guitar.
This is my 3rd Orangewood purchase, and I'll probably buy another after I buy the OMJM that I want. Cheers Orangewood!
