Superb and sounds good

Jjnb, 12.12.2017
This ORTEGA RCE 138SNL really has very good assets: the violin, the sound, the price

Accessories :
Ortega embroidered cover; 2 outer compartments; inner sleeve holding cushion + velcro strap; padded handle; padded shoulder straps; heel protection. All this is well thought out and well done; ditto for the strap and appreciable detail: the truss rod adjustment key is in the cover.

The guitar (model LEFT ^^):
It makes a beautiful effect from the opening of the cover. The massive table (spruce / 2 parts) has beautiful streaks, the rosette is beautiful with its double net of abalone which circles a dark wood with the elegant logo of the "Feel Series". Integrated chromatic tuner (super convenient even with a capo); back and sides mahogany (sapele plated), surrounded by a net, 12-hole bridge; shiny varnish on the other hand a little thick ... We must really push the observation to see some perfectible details but they are unimportant. As stated inside: "Designed in Germany / Manufactured in China RP". Also note that the photos of illustration are rather faithful to the reality.

The handle :
For this model 48 mm to the saddle nut. We are not on a classical guitar (52 mm in this case) but it allows to pass an F with the thumb. Impeccable hooping, profile of the handle a little thick but well adapted to the hand. The key begins to show the signs that the price should not fly: a rosewood just correct, although the nice touch. Access to acute OK with the cutaway but hampered by the strap attachment button (which could have been placed on the other side of the heel). The key marks are discrete. The action: 4mm at the 12th fret and 1.4mm at the nut so the guitar does not curl at all and remains perfectly playable "out of the box". The heel of the handle is in 3 parts (???). Beautiful 3-tone mechanical (black white gold)

The sound :
Slight imbalance in acoustics: beautiful bass that eat a little treble but the massive table plays its role and the sound has a good projection with Salvarez 500CJ (tension strong) ropes mounted original. Which brings us directly to the test of the Ortega Magus Pro system built into the guitar: volume, eq 3 bands, phase, good idea to have dissociated the power supply and the control box: much more aesthetic as well. It is in this trendy configuration that the guitar is really revealed (Fender acoustasonic amplifier in the test). Frankly it switches to something else! The sound is ample, easy to correct, a little reverb, a pinch of chorus, and the guitar becomes very expressive!

Conclusion:
A guitar nylon strings around 400 euros, massive table, electro acoustic, violin rather successful, accessories. For left handed, we do not have much choice than that to have a nice guitar and that sounds as good in this price range!
