Here’s what really matters
Owning an instrument comes down to improving something very important
You may have your own plans for what to do with a new ukulele, but one fundamental thing IS for certain.
You’re reading this page because you’re thinking about enriching your life with an instrument.
This is a BIG DEAL.
It’s what enters your mind first (before scale, wood types and finishes).
Playing an instrument can be life expanding. You develop a relationship with it instantly, you care for it, and best of all, it rewards you tremendously. Ask any new player or seasoned pro …this feeling never goes away.
Built exceptional and not just satisfactory, your instrument really can be an extension of you.
Simple done exceedingly well
Being a family-owned company based in the small town of Gutenstetten, Germany, at Ortega Guitars, we designed our Bonfire Series ukuleles with a classic sound, look and feel that doesn’t try to “challenge” what a great ukulele should be.
Instead, each element is carefully chosen and crafted to sound instantly recognizable while lasting a lifetime.
Designed in Germany with top grade materials and elegant finishing touches
Fine tone woods with etched body top
With fantastic brightness and a strong mid-range tone, this Bonfire Series Ukulele is made with a spruce top, sapele back/sides and mahogany neck—all in natural satin finish.
Top grade walnut is used for the fretboard and bridge that adds a high-end look with smooth feel.
For visual elements, we used a photogenic tortoise style ABS binding and topped the body with a laser etched “Butterfly and Grass” design near the bridge.
Featuring a MagusUke preamp/pickup system with built-in tuner and quarter-inch output jack, you can give your sound a boost in any setting.
Volume and tone dials allow you to easily mix your sound, and the built-in tuner is made for convenience with pinpoint accuracy.
On the side bottom is a quarter-inch output jack to send your signal to any amplifier or PA system (cables not included).
Modern die-cast tuning machines
Chrome plated die-cast tuning machines with synthetic black buttons give the ukulele a clean and modern look while being easy to operate.
This design keeps the gears sealed from outside elements for added durability.
These tuners allow for fast re-stringing, precise tuning adjustments, and they have an effortless touch when turning the buttons.
Here, you can also see the mahogany neck and headstock with natural wood grain coming through.
The concert size (scale 380 mm) blends crisp string articulation with full tonal development from the 68 mm deep body for a classic ukulele sound that can be used in virtually any setting.
This scale responds with a warm presence that can easily fill a room with sound.
The Bonfire Series concert ukulele is equipped with four strings (high G tuning: G,C,E,A). These white nylon strings are designed for warmth and punchy tone.
The best-selling Bonfire series features classic Ortega craftsmanship with a touch of flair. Available in all standard sizes, with or without electronics, a variety of wood choices and shapes, and with eye-catching laser engraving, there is a Bonfire ukulele for everyone, even lefties.
