Full Sized Nylon String Acoustic With Modern Enhancements Designed for Player Comfort
The Ortega Feel Series ‘slim neck’ (SN) Guitars are traditional nylon string acoustics with modern enhancements that improve player comfort and playability. The left handed Ortega R138SN-L features a highly resonant Canadian Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides and a decorative Maple body binding that makes the glossy natural finish really pop. With a solid top and laminate sides, the Ortega lefty R138SN-L has a warm tone with nice volume and projection.
The area where the most modern enhancements have been made is in the neck design. This Ortega Feel Series guitar features the SN ‘Slim Neck’ modern neck design which delivers the kind of comfort and playability you would expect from a modern acoustic or electric guitar in a nylon string classical acoustic. With a nut width of 48mm instead of the traditional 52mm, the neck is more narrow and easier to play.
The lefty R138 SN-L features Ortega’s new 12-hole walnut bridge system which helps to reduce string tension and sweeten the overall tone of this traditional nylon string acoustic. The 12 hole bridge design also decreases the likelihood of string breakage and makes string replacement much easier.
