A solid-top pro Ortega Requinto model designed for a variety of performance styles.

Rooted in Mexican and Latin American traditions, requinto guitars are smaller versions of the classical guitar with a shorter scale length and a notably deeper body depth. Ortega’s RQ38 Requinto Guitar is not only suitable for trío romántico groups and traditional folk music, but it’s also a great instrument for acoustic performances where amplification is not possible as they’re much louder than a traditional small-body guitar. The Ortega RQ38 Requinto features a tonewood combination of Engelmann spruce with sapele in a satin finish. Other features include an okoume neck, 2-way truss rod and walnut fretboard and bridge.

Ortega Requinto Series Pro models feature a solid top and come with a deluxe gig bag.
