Ortega Left Handed R180L Classical Guitar


Quality Classical Acoustic With Striking Looks, Easy Playability and Tonal Versatility

Established in 1994, Ortega is a relatively new name in the world of classical acoustic instruments, and one of their stated company objectives is to break barriers without losing focus on the fundamentals of classical guitar making. This includes making their authentic acoustic instruments in Spain. The Ortega R180L delivers striking looks and impressive tonal qualities, making it an excellent buy in its price range.

The left handed Ortega R180L features an American Cedar top with a colorful rosette and Bubinga back and sides, giving this classical acoustic an absolutely beautiful appearance. The natural patterns in the tonewoods on the back and sides are finished in a lovely satin that enhances its feel and overall appearance.

The Mahogany neck is designed for comfort. Only 2.04“ wide at the nut, the neck fits well in the hand and with a 25.5“ scale length and dot fret markings along the length of the Rosewood fingerboard, this lefty Ortega R180L will make you feel right at home even if you are used to playing an electric. When you combine all of the premium appointments -- the satin finish Cedar top and Bulbinga sides, the thin Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard -- the lefty Ortega R180L checks all of the boxes for anyone looking for a full size classical acoustic.
