Yann Kovic's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ortega RCE400ST
Cutaway classical guitar made in Spain.
19 fret ebony handle.
2 microphones will mixable via preamp Fishman Prefix (setting: hi - mid - low - volume - contour - mixing microphones).
Round handle quite resolutely classical type.

Soundboard: Solid Spruce.
Bottom, sides: Rosewood
Neck: Mahogany
Fingerboard: Ebony
Tuners: gold
Micro / Preamp: Fishman Prefix Blend
Finish: Gloss

Comes with soft case quality transportation scratched "Ortega"


The neck is thick, round, pleasant enough, but lends itself poorly to a game "thumb over" (remember this is a "classic"!)

Access to acute is pretty good for this type of guitar, and the thickness of the heel was reduced acute side for easy access.

Ergonomics is correct, the guitar is very light.

The acoustic sound is full, especially low side, quite round, and powerful. The acute is correct without more, and lack a bit of crystal. Maybe better strings would get better sound.
There is a preponderance for the lower, more present than the midrange and treble, probably due to the construction "Spanish" of this product. One senses a trend that pulls Flamenco.
The electro sound is good too, the Fishman preamp very comprehensive, but it took much trial and error to find a sound that suited me.


The sounds could suit me, but I regretted the lack of crystalline treble level. That is why I have not kept.


I have kept a few days.
What I liked least, I have already said, the lack of crystalline in the high (but hey, it seems that investing in a guitar of high-end genre "Ramirez" to get the sounds I am looking for ...)

I noticed a slight gap in the mechanical buttons, which is unacceptable for a guitar of this price (€ 1,130 in 2007).

I tried other models in the same price range, but it is difficult to find classical guitars that level of stock ... The ones I tried disappointed me, they looked like low-end guitars, because frankly their sound reminded me a Stagg 300 € that I have for some years!

I am a little disappointed at value for money (€ 1130 anyway). We see no difference in quality between the cheap folk guitar and those a bit more expensive than conventional guitars.
Repeat this choice ... I do not think because the sound is not that I'm looking for.

The guitar remains a good classical guitar electro, and may not be suitable for some my requirements.
