About Ortega

The starting point for our modern company was the crafting of guitars along classical Spanish lines. Today we have taken traditional guitar-making to new levels, developing instruments that are tailored listening to our customers’ requirements. And in doing so we use all our senses – listening to them, fingering them, gauging their shape and colour. The results can be found in every single instrument we make – which you have helped to create! Connecting all these things together allows us to on pulse of time.
