Work of art

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

The Ortega RGLE18FMH Guitarlele I have after a long research on the one hand for me as a third guitar to travel and on the other as an entry for my small daughter (2 years young) selected and bought.
(I had been thinking about whether it was a ukulele or a guitar guitar or a guitarleel.) As an adult with big hands, a 7/8 guitar makes sense and a ukulele is absolutely a new instrument and I wanted to stay with guitar A really good children's guitar costs considerably more and thus the 329 euro were manageable)

For the info and the comparison, I have a Martin HD28 Western guitar and my Hanika Grand concert as a classic master guitar.

To the Ortega RGLE18FMH Guitarlele I can say that it is absolutely beautiful and elegant, it also looks great and the wood is Hamma noble.
The sound has changed every time I play it, it sounds really really good (it has a unique sound with the small body).
The workmanship is also top notch (except a mini minimal wood burr on the inside of the mechanics where you can not see it anyway, but I can solve myself).

Although I have to admit openly that I have large hands (XL) and grab the first position is not a problem after a few minutes of exercise but further down on the handlebar it does not make sense with my hands because I always there To begin to smile because my fingers begin to knot there.

For children, young people and guitarists with small hands absolutely TOP and recommended and generally a wonderful instrument like a small work of art

The arrangement at Thomann was first class and I ordered the Ortega RGLE18FMH guitarlele on Thursday night and on Saturday afternoon it arrived.
