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.

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 spirit to create something new & the will to deliver instruments that are affordable and comfortable to be played by anyone. At Ortega Guitars we are building traditional instruments for the modern-day player since 1994.
