GUITAR SUMMIT 2023
Get ready for a game-changing moment in the history of Ortega Guitars! We're thrilled to announce the global release of an exciting new series in our product lineup at the Guitar Summit.
Join us at Booth #078 at Guitar Summit 2023, taking place at Mannheim's Rosengarten from September 22nd to 24th
THREE NEW MODELS ADDED TO THE FAMILY SERIES PRO GUITARS
These three models are a successful addition to our Family Series of acoustic guitars with electronics. These guitars' solid Canadian Engelmann spruce top and mahogany body give them a well-balanced tone, which is one of their primary benefits. A full-body version with a traditional neck is an option, as is a thin line variant with a slim neck. This ergonomic design and the cutaway allows for effortless playability and smooth access to the upper frets, making it a joy to perform on stage or in the studio. A padded premium gig bag is included with each model.
