RCE158SN-NT, with less should not be satisfied

Heinz537, 04.07.2013
Unpacking and marveling that you can get for the price such a high-quality instrument (supposedly handcrafted). The workmanship is impeccable, there is no small defect.

The narrow neck comes very close to my hands, which are not particularly large. The head plate adorns the golden Ortega logo, which is more subtle and high-quality than a complete manufacturer's name. At the upper edge of the handle, small dots are inserted for orientation assistance from the 3rd to the 17th.

The sound hole ring is made of rosewood, framed by mother-of-pearl rings. The spruce top has very tight annual rings, which indicates a good consistency. (Spruce is not the same as spruce). With the flat 12-hole bridge, replacing strings is almost child's play. The bridge is rounded to the rear for more string support and less frictional resistance.

The string position I got with the help of the built-in steel rod in the 12th fret down to 3 mm, without something rattling or rattling. On the back of the guitar, no bindings are inserted, but this is not decisive for the sound.

Since the guitar is of the concept and the design (pickup and cutaway) also suitable for the stage use in standing, the necessary belt pins (large and gold plated) were also installed and a Ortega fabric strap included. The new Magus pro pickup unit is relatively small, but handy and clearly arranged, so that the vibration loss is kept to a minimum. The tuner was (somehow interesting) incorporated into the Ortega logo and worked precisely. The required battery compartment, in turn, is located in the lower frame in one unit with the jack socket.

The sound is amazingly full and warm, although it is always claimed that a spruce blanket is properly played after about 100 hours. The pickup system works precisely and reproduces the guitar sound when the tone control is centered, there is no audible volume difference between the individual strings.

The guitar is delivered in the Gigbag, but I already had a Ortega suitcase, in which she exactly reinpasst.

Conclusion: A very successful, optically very nice guitar at a surprisingly reasonable price. It can keep up with far more expensive instruments.

PS: I am not sponsored by Ortega. A Ortega in the same price class, which was optically very nice, but sound neither unplugged nor strengthened for me was satisfactory, I have now given away.

One can assume that my evaluation is relatively objective, as I have a comparison of 5 more concert guitars and as a guitar teacher almost every day I go through some instruments through the fingers.

Beautiful instrument with good equipment. L sst W e open when handling.

19.01.2017
The optical impression after unpacking was great.
At the first game test, I felt the strong compared to my classic concert guitar. This neck, for my hands, makes the advantage that I had hoped for from the narrower neck.
The sound seemed initially immature but with the time to a good sound picture over the entire sound range - probably has something to do with the spruce top. That is, as a newcomer you have to be patient and play a lot so that the sound can develop.

But only the test of the pickup system finally convinced me and decided to keep the instrument. Unlike the Thomann sound examples, the amplified reproduction was much more balanced. The character was very close, if not identical to the sound of the unreinforced instrument.
I see for me still optimization potential with the neck / string geometry and I think that I still need professional advice. ME for me the string height at the saddle is too high.
