The Ortega Feel Series ‘medium neck’ (MN) guitars are traditional nylon string acoustics with modern enhancements that improve player comfort and playability. The left handed Ortega R139MN-L features a highly resonant Canadian Cedar top with Mahogany back and sides and a decorative Maple body binding and a gorgeous Ortega Signature mother of pearl Rosette. With a solid top and laminate sides, the Ortega lefty R139MN-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 MN ‘Medium Neck’ modern neck design which delivers the enhanced playability you would expect from a modern acoustic in a nylon string classical acoustic. With a nut width of 50mm instead of the traditional 52mm, the neck is narrower and easier to play.
The lefty R139MN-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.
The left handed Ortega R139MN-L classical acoustic is one of Ortega’s ‘medium neck’ classical acoustics that combines traditional aesthetics with modern enhancements to create a beautiful nylon string classical acoustic with a traditional tone and more modern feel. If you love the tone of a nylon string, but have shied away from them in the past because of their neck size, this Ortega slim neck classical acoustic has exactly what you’re looking for! With the neck trimmed down to a slender width of 50mm, you will find that the lefty R139MN-L has the perfect feel for anyone with small hands or who is used to a modern acoustic or electric.
