A reimagining of some of Orangewood’s most popular models within their solid-top Melrose Collection.

Los Angeles, CA (August 31, 2020) -- Orangewood announced today the introduction of three new models to their Special Edition Melrose Collection: Mason Nylon Cedar Live, Brooklyn Jr. Live, and Echo Vintage Sunburst Live.

The Special Edition Melrose Collection is a reimagining of some of Orangewood’s most popular models within their solid top Melrose Collection — offering new sizes, finishes, and string options for their best-selling models. The Mason Nylon Cedar Live, modeled after the original Mason Live, is Orangewood’s first-ever nylon string guitar. Made with a Fishman Flex EQ Pickup System and loaded with Savarez Cristal Corum High Tension Nylon Strings, Mason Nylon Cedar Live is designed to be a modern take on the classical guitar.

The Brooklyn Jr. Live, as part of the Special Edition Melrose Collection, is a scaled-down version of Orangewood’s popular grand concert Brooklyn model — a perfect fit for smaller players or anyone looking for a high-quality, perfectly balanced mini guitar at an affordable price.

The last model revealed, the Echo Vintage Sunburst Live, offers a new finish option to the Echo dreadnought guitar. With a rustic, sunburst color, the new finishing pairs a timeless impression with Echo’s bold sound and full-bodied projection.
