Delivery was fast with no issues. Have been looking for an affordable12 fret small body acoustic for some and the Opeongo all solid ticks all the boxes. Love this box.

This is one sweet guitar that demands precise contact to yield a rich tone. Wow, did I say that... I've improved dramatically in only a few days! The more I caress this instrument.. the sweeter the sound in general. Finger picker may wants to lower the action but now it's a good compromise. Intonation is almost bang on, and my slide likes the height of the strings.. Looks wonderful, feels wonderful, and even smells wonderful. To the point, I can forgive a blemish or two. ) Five stars are needed to complement this guitar!

My Opeongo arrived in early June and has exceeded every expectation. The spruce and mahogany wood on this baby is gorgeous. The playability is impressive: highs and lows ring clear and the guitar is wonderfully balanced with great sustain. I love the size of this guitar. It is not as small as, say, a Larrivee parlor (which is a fine guitar, btw), but is just the perfect size for me. It has an amazing resonance for its size. I was so pleased with the overall quality of this instrument that I have pre-ordered the 14-fret Baby Riverboat.

I'm one of those who almost never leaves reviews. However, as I was always looking for new reviews before I purchased mine, I thought I should leave one for someone in the same position. I think its a very very nice guitar. Looks great. Sounds great. Very well balanced sound. Much nicer mids than my other acoustics and the top and bottom end are sweet. Surprising how much bottom end is there. I played it for a friend who at first said "nice guitar". Then he said after how nice it sounds. As well it's a very light and comfortable guitar to play. I can't wait to hear the reactions and the sound when others play it or I have the chance to play and compare it to other peoples guitars. No buyers remorse here at all. But, just one thing to mention for people thinking about it - if you play chords up the neck often, as I do, consider a 14 fret or cutaway. At the time I purchased, it was the only small body 1-3/4 nut width being offered and I really wanted that width as I play fingerstyle often. I see another guitar in my future now and wouldn't be concerned in the slightest purchasing from M&M again.

I recently purchased the Opeongo because I have wanted a small body, 12-fret, slotted headstock guitar. And this guitar fits all those requirements. I also have a couple of high-end dreadnought guitars as well. I could not ask for a better moderately priced guitar, and am very happy with it. I don't believe I have played one of the dreadnoughts since this one arrived. Very good "bang" for the "buck."

The guitar is well built with good materials but it frets out when I play first string 3rd fret G.I want to keep it but it needs to see a luthier

I have two of your instruments, the Opeongo and the Tofino( I probably didn’t spell correctly)…they both are really good instruments to play. Easy playing, good sound. The Opeongo, is fuller sounding than I anticipated. The Tofino, sound great. Thanks

Just a big thanx for building my OO. Opeongo. I’m so pleased with this little beauty. Beyond my expectations. Plays like a dream with flatpick AND finger style...clean sound, makes me want to do the “old” songs as well as adapt to “newer” stuff.

I have played guitar for 58 years but it has been a bit spotty so I am not the greatest. That being said I have played and owned many guitars over the years. In all that time I have not owned a 12 fret to the body so I thought I would try one. The Opeongo has a strong ringing tone and is virtually flawless in it's construction. After tuning a few strings it was good to go. The action was a bit higher than I like but I left it that way for the one week trial. There is lots of height in the saddle so I can get whatever action I choose. I will not be returning this guitar

Superb craftsmanship, focused tone! This instrument would compliment a fat 6 string if they were both spread apart in a mix. I also can't get over how beautiful it looks. Thank you!


An Important Note Regarding Porch Pirates

When we ship a guitar we always send it with instructions to the courier that a signature MUST be obtained at the time of delivery. If no one is home to sign for the carton, it will not be left. We do this to ensure that your guitar does not fall into the hands of porch pirates (or other nefarious characters such as bass players or drummers).

UPDATE - We've learned that during the COVID-19 crisis FedEx is sometimes leaving cartons with no signature. Please follow the tracking number we provide to make sure you know when your guitar arrives.
