Ortega 16 Hole Bridge

The innovative 16 hole bridge featured on the Ortega RCE159-8 makes string changes both quick and easy. By simply looping the string around the two holes provided for each string, the player can trap the end of the string in a noose, help in place by the string tension. This solves the challenging problem of tying knots in nylon strings without ball ends.
