Beautiful Guitar, Awful Sound

26.05.2016
This is a lovely looking instrument. Unfortunately, the strings sound dead and lifeless and the guitar has terrible resonance, which is surprising for an extended range guitar. I am also extremely disappointed in how poorly the instrument holds its tuning. I have had the guitar for nearly two weeks, which should be plenty of time for the neck to adjust to any changes in humidity as well as for the (presumably) new strings to set. Still, I have to re-tune all of the strings (which go a semi-tone flat) every time I pick up the guitar.

David D. 576, 09.05.2016
Hallo:)
Ich habe sowohl die Ortega Octa-Suite, als auch die RCE159-8 getestet.

Beide klingen gut mit satten Bässen.
Beide Gitarren hatten eine gute Bespielbarkeit!

Die Stimm-Mechaniken sind nicht besonders gut oder stabil. Ich würde sie eher austauschen wenn mir mal gute und passende 8-Saiter-Mechaniken in die Hände fielen.

Beide mir zugesendeten Gitarren hatten einen defekten Tonabnehmer... nun das war ärgerlich. Beide zurückgeschickt. Also kann ich zum PU nichts sagen.

Die Bundierung beider ist sauber gemacht, jedoch ist die Intonation teilweise bis zu 7 cent off. Das ist nicht fein.
Ist mir aber egal, da ich sie sowieso in einem anderen Tonsystem neu-bundieren will.

---Im Vergleich:

Die Bauart beider ist gleich, abgesehen von den Hölzern von Decke, Boden und Zarge. Die Octa-Suite ist vollmassiv mit etwas teureren Hölzern und die RCE159-8 hat nur eine massive Decke, jedoch Zargen und Boden sind laminiert.

Die Suite hat bis zum hohen h' eine resonante, laute Ansprache, darüber abfallend.
Bei der RCE ist die Anschprache schon ab der g-Saite etwas dünn. (trotz gleicher Saiten)

Auf der Suite kann man Melodien in jeder Lage Charakter und Volumen verleihen, dafür ist sie in Akkorden recht unausgeglichen und mittig im Klang.
Die RCE ist in Akkorden ausgeglichen und insgesamt etwas brillanter, dafür eher schwach bei Melodien auf den Diskant-Saiten.

Sie Suite kommt mit einem Rauleder- und die RCE mit einem Nylon Gurt.

---Fazit:

China-Gitarren mit dem-Preis-entsprechender Umsetzung aber viel Potential. Auch sind sie quasi Konkurrenzlos in dieser Preisklasse. (Die Ibanez G208WC geht nur bis zum A1 runter und hat eine 650mm Mensur)

--Empfehlung:

Einem Gitarristen der bloß etwas neues probieren will würde ich sagen, dass der Aufpreis sich nicht auszahlt und ihm die RCE159-8 ans Herz legen, da auch beim laminierten Palisander und der Gewächshaus-Zeder die klangliche Streuung nicht so hoch ist.

Jemandem, der dieses Instrument professionell verwendet und für dem der höhere Preis jede Nuance wert ist, würde ich empehlen beide zu probieren. Falls ihm die Octa-Suite zusagt, würde ich raten verschiedene Gitarren der Serie zu probieren da sie sehr unterschiedlich klingen können.

Generell würde ich die Gitarre keinem Anfänger und niemandem mit eher kleinen Händen empfehlen, da das Griffbrett sehr breit ist. (bedeutend breiter als bei 8-saitigen E-Gitarren)
Aber ambitionierte spieler, kann ja bekanntlich nichts aufhalten;)
