Established in 1994, Ortega Guitars introduced German design to authentic and traditional methods of guitar making. Committed to innovation and quality, we strive to improve what is expected at every level of all our acoustic instruments. Options like the 12hole bridge, often found only on high-end guitars, are standard at our entry level to professional nylon string guitars. Our wide variety of body and neck sizes accommodates all ages giving everyone an opportunity to learn and play. Inspection standards are placed at many stages to assure that our instruments are the finest quality before they reach your hands.
Ortega is an innovative company taking Classical Spanish guitar luthiery and combining it with the latest manufacturing techniques and guitar developments to produce modern nylon string guitars.
Ortega breaks classical guitar barriers without losing focus on the raw basics of classical guitar making. Traditionally nylon string guitars do not come with a truss rod, but most of Ortega's do! For many, this is a step to far from tradition, but why not combine modern comforts like a 2 way truss rod, to ensure the action is always perfect, with a traditional classical construction?
