Just in time for Halloween, Orangewood has released the Oliver Black, a limited-edition version of their Oliver acoustic guitar.

The new model boasts the same grand concert body and solid spruce top as the Oliver, only now with a “spooky” black matte finish. 

Other features on the Oliver Black include layered mahogany back and sides, a mahogany neck and an ovangkol fingerboard and bridge.

There’s also a Fishman Sonitone EQ pickup system, scalloped X bracing, bone nut and saddle and chrome die-cast tuners.

All this – and a gigbag – for just $275. 

The Oliver Black will be available beginning, 'natch, on October 31. For more information, head to Orangewood Guitars

It's not the first limited-edition Halloween model we've seen this year, either, as it follows Gibson's new Bats in Flight Les Paul Custom, which was also announced this week.
