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.

Great instrument - especially for the price

David D. 576, 09.05.2016
Hello:)
I have tested both the Ortega Octa-Suite and the RCE159-8.

Both sound well with rich basses.
Both guitars had a good playability!

The tuning mechanisms are not particularly good or stable. I would rather exchange them if I times good and suitable 8-string-mechanism fell into the hands.

Both sent me guitars had a defective pickup ... well that was annoying. Both returned. So I can not say to the PU.

The bundling of both is clean, however the intonation is partly up to 7 cent off. That is not fine.
But I do not care, since I want to re-band them anyway in another sound system.

---Compared:

The construction of both is the same, apart from the wood of the ceiling, floor and frame. The Octa-Suite is full-mass with slightly more expensive woods and the RCE159-8 has only a solid ceiling, but the sides and the floor are laminated.

The suite has a resonant, loud response to the high h ', falling over it.
With the RCE, the talk is somewhat thin already from the g-string. (Despite the same strings)

In the suite, melodies can be given a character and volume in every situation, but in chords it is quite unbalanced and centered in the sound.
The RCE is balanced in chords and overall slightly more brilliant, but rather weak with melodies on the treble strings.

She comes with a ruffle and the RCE with a nylon strap.

---Conclusion:

China guitars with the price-appropriate implementation but a lot of potential. Also, they are virtually unrivaled in this price class. (The Ibanez G208WC only goes down to the A1 and has a 650mm scale)

--Recommendation:

A guitarist who just wants to try something new, I would say that the extra charge is not paying off and the RCE159-8 to the heart, because also with the laminated rosewood and the greenhouse cedar the sound scatter is not so high.

Someone who uses this instrument professionally and for whom the higher price is worth every nuance, I would empehlen both to try. If the octa suite suits him, I would advise guessing different guitars of the series as they can sound very different.

In general, I would recommend the guitar to no beginner and no one with rather small hands, since the fingerboard is very wide. (Significantly wider than 8-string electric guitars)
But ambitious players, as is known, nothing can stop
