innovative, creative, different

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 for all our acoustic instruments. Options like the 12hole bridge often found only on high-end guitars, are standard on our entry-level to professional nylon string guitars. Our wide variety of body and neck sizes accommodates all ages allowing everyone to learn and play.


We started as a guitar manufacturer aiming to produce guitars that everybody can play and afford. Looking back these cornerstones mark our way from a small German guitar brand to a global corporation with distribution partners all over the world.

hand crafted quality made in spain

The starting point of our company was the crafting of guitars in the Spanish tradition. Today we have taken traditional guitar-making to new levels, developing instruments that are tailored by listening to our customers’ requirements. The results can be found in every single instrument we make, which you have helped to create.

The family grows

But we did not stop there. Over the last 25 years we have consistently extended our product range. Currently, our customers can choose from a wide variety of different stringed instruments like ukuleles, acoustic basses, mandolins and banjos. We also introduced smaller sized guitars like our 1/4, 1/2 & 3/4 models to support young talents with small hands.

Ortega Guitars Team

We love to design instruments as much as we love to play them. In each instrument you will find our passion for music, the pioneer spirit to create something new & the will to deliver instruments that are affordable and comfortable to play by anyone, anywhere at any time. At Ortega Guitars we are building traditional instruments for the modern-day player since 1994.
