Work of art
20.11.2016
The first reaction when I received this guitarlele was sheer admiration for its loveliness. It's made of solid mahogany and it is absolutely beautiful, a work of art.

However, for me, the two most important things about any instrument are sound and playability and the Ortega scored full marks on both.

I already had a Yamaha guitarlele (as well as two acoustic guitars). The sound of the Ortega was in a different league from that of the Yamaha - as you would expect because of the huge price difference.

The Ortega is a pleasure to play because of its sound. It has a depth I have not heard on an instrument this size before. It's also very playable.

And then there is the pickup - it's marvellous. I play in a band and can use the guitarlele. The sound seems huge. Who would believe it was coming from such a small instrument.

The size is a bonus, too - marvellous for travelling.

Last but not least there is a well padded classy gig bag.

TOP Ortega RGLE18FMH Guitarlele
08.03.2016
Die Ortega RGLE18FMH Guitarlele habe ich nach langer Recherche zum einen für mich als Drittgitarre zum verreisen und zum anderen als Einstig für meine kleine Tochter (2 Jahre jung) ausgesucht und gekauft.
(Ich hatte lange hin und her überlegt ob es eine Ukulele oder eine Kindergitarre oder eine Guitarlele sein sollte. Als Erwachsener mit großen Händen macht erst eine 7/8 Gitarre sinn und eine Ukulele ist absolut ein neues Instrument und ich wollte doch lieber bei Gitarre bleiben. Zudem kostet eine richtig gute Kindergitarre auch erheblich mehr und somit waren die 329 Euro überschaubar)

Rein zur Info und zum vergleich habe ich ansonsten noch eine Martin HD28 Westerngitarre und meine Hanika Grand Konzert als klassische Meistergitarre.

Zu der Ortega RGLE18FMH Guitarlele kann ich sagen, dass sie absolut wunderschön und zierlich ist, zudem fasst sie sich herrlich an und das Holz ist Hamma edel.
Der Klang hat und haut mich jedes Mal um, wenn ich sie spiele, sie klingt richtig richtig gut (sie hat einen für sich einzigartigen Klang mit dem kleinen Korpus).
Die Verarbeitung ist auch erstklassig (außer einem mini minimalem Holz Grat an der Innenseite der Mechanik wo man ihn eh nicht sieht, habe ich jedoch selber locker entraten können).

Wobei ich offen gestehen muss, dass ich große Hände (XL) habe und das greifen in der ersten Lage ist nach ein paar Minuten Übung kein Problem aber weiter unten am Griffbrett macht es dann doch mit meinen Händen nicht so einen Sinn, da ich da immer anfange schmunzeln zu müssen weil meine Finger sich dort anfangen zu verknoten.

Fazit:
Für Kinder, Jugendliche und Gitarristen mit kleinen Händen absolut TOP und empfehlenswert und allgemein ein wunderschönes Instrument wie ein kleines Kunstwerk

PS
Die Abwicklung bei Thomann war erstklassig und ich habe die Ortega RGLE18FMH Guitarlele am Donnerstagnacht bestellt und am Samstagmittag ist sie angekommen.

Guitarlélé Acoustique
Florent O., 03.10.2011
Quelques parasites sur l'ampli lors des premières fois où j'ai joué avec, depuis plus rien...
Petite déception quant au fait qu'elle soit made in china, j'aurais préféré du made in germany.
Hormis ça, ça reste un instrument quand même correct en fonction du prix...

Wechsel der Batterie war das AUS - Thomann hat sie zurückgenommen
Anke Eva, 15.01.2019
Leider muss ich das korrigieren- klingt bekloppt aber die Kleinigkeiten machen es eben: als ich die Batterie für das integrierte Stimmgerät wechseln wollte, kam ich - ohne Bedienungsanleitung , handwerklich aber nicht unbegabt, an das Fach nicht heran und zerstörte dabei versehntlich einiges.. Und schickte sie zurück, bekam mein Geld zurück. DANKE THomann.
Ansonsten war sie vom Klang her eine wahrliche Steigerung zur GL1. Hab sie sehr gern gespeilt. Nur hätte es auch nicht soviel in Gold blinken müssen, wenn man die Batterie einfacher wechseln könnte :-), dann könnte sie auch im Preis etwas niedriger und ein wunderbares Instrument sein. ..Das bei Lieferung erst mal einige Tage sehr nach Lack roch....
