Ortega Ben Woods is a jewel.

I tried this guitar made in Spain craft and I must say that I am completely satisfied, it is beautiful and pleasant to play, has a very warm sound, is perfect for my classical arpeggio music, feels clear and decisive and clean sound. A professional and collectible guitar. A great purchase thanks to Thomann.

Django R., 25.04.2018
A new nylon string guitar was supposed to play everything, especially for your own enjoyment and occasionally on a small scale or in clubs, and to set a different tone to my other guitars (Fender Strat, Fender Acoustics, Gretsch Dobro). It should definitely have a cutaway, a pickup and a wider fingerboard. Good playability I assume

After twenty guitars had gathered on my wish list, which I could never have tested at home, I set off for the casting directly at Thomann.

The very nice staff equipped me with the first applicants and organized from the warehouse, which was not available in the sales room.

The finals ended with a beautifully-run Cordoba GK Studio, a Takamine TC132SC, the Ortega Jade-Ny and the Taylor 114ce-N. All gradually left for various objective and subjective reasons. The Takamine would have been an alternative, but at the end because of the missing covenant mark eliminated.

It became clearer and clearer:

For me, in contrast to the other candidates, the general feeling at the first contact and the playability fit perfectly. I did not have a thin body on the screen, but surprisingly I found the unreinforced sound rounder and more perfect than the other models. From the Taylor z. For example, I would have expected much more here. She is also very well equipped with the Fishman Classica Blend Pickup and was also able to convince at an AER.

The model is handmade in Spain. I have to emphasize the very good workmanship! Even after a later in-depth inspection at home is NOTHING to find what you could complain about.

Other models from Ortega are otherwise a whole lot cheaper. But considering that only 66 of this instrument were made by hand and you get a certificate, the price surprises. Because for Signature models in small series otherwise quite different prices are called, right? Due to the small number of pieces one could assume that the instruments are stable in value (if one would ever have to part with it)

There is a small point deduction that instead of a usual in this price range suitcase only a Deluxe Gigbag is included. But this is very well worked and who does not pull out so often with the instrument outside, can store the Gigbag well somewhere. For everyone else, Thomann will surely have suitable suitcases on offer.


- very good sound
- very good workmanship
- very good playability
- Handmade from Spain instead of mass produced from Asia
- Signature with certificate, small series of 66 pieces
