Good concert guitar at a reasonable price
Ray_B62, 29.07.2016
First I am not a professional but a re-entry.
First, as a non German burger excuse the bad grammar and spelling if it does not fit read elsewhere.

After 30 years of abstinence I decided it had been since finally to do what again
I really like it. First I started with a cheap strat copy and then got a Western guitar and more
An LP to the collection. Now I want to have a relatively cheap concert guitar and after an attempt with a Fender, which I did not like at all, the choice fell on this Ortega RCE138SN.

I use this guitar just to practice, daily more than an hour sometimes longer. I can connect it to an amplifier but have not done so far so I can not write to it.

In my ears and those who have listened so far, the guitar has a very nice sound but this is something everyone must judge for themselves because of what the matter has each other a different opinion.
Praise goes in any case to Thomann because before it was sent to me is guaranteed someone was there and has only once, the setup checked and voted, straight from the box it was perfectly adjusted and I could go immediately.
The action I find good to very good, the sides please me even if they are not really long-sighted (after two weeks the first wear appearance was apparent and after one month I have to replace the.

The built-in tuner (MagusPro-NL) is fast and very accurate only the tuner (hardware) do not like it quite so can be but the groove rather than the tuner must admit however the guitar is still relatively stable.

The processing is top I think it can hardly be better if I had just gluck and got a particularly good guitar I can not say but so far there is nothing to complain about the finish is perfect.
The product pictures can not really bring the beauty to this guitar and what I like very much personally is that the binding is not some plastic but wood. The bundles are perfectly processed and the guitar is bundled.

The supplied guitar strap is completely sufficient and also of good quality, also the included Gigbag provides sufficient protection if one should be on the way with it.

My conclusion, a good concert guitar at a reasonable price.

I wanted a classical guitar to change my folk.I am not disappointed! It's a very nice guitar, sober, elegant and well finished. The sound is excellent, trendy or not. The cover provided is also of very good quality. I can only recommend it!
