Hand Made Quality You Can See And Hear!

By Benny

from Cedar City, UT

Comments about Cordoba 55FCE Thinbody Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Flamenco Guitar:

I've been playing guitar for about 5 years now and I just got my hands on this beautiful guitar! First thing you notice about this guitar is the workmanship by Cordoba! Hand made excellence! I have played many guitars but nothing has comes close to this amazing guitar! The second you start to play you notice the warmth and projecting tone from thin body with Solid European Spruce and Flamed Maple Back & Sides. It's just amazing! The Pre Amp is just as amazing! Love how you can blend the Pickup with and built in mic. Beautiful sound! I will forever be a Cordoba player for life and my next guitar will surly be a Cordoba Guitar!

    Comments about Cordoba 55FCE Thinbody Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Flamenco Guitar:

    After years of playing rock, blues, jazz, rockabilly on electric and acoustic guitars, I decided to try my hand at playing classical guitar. After a lot of research, and, reading several reviews, both here and on other sites, I decided on the Cordoba FCE 55. I received this guitar today. It's just an awesome guitar! It sounds as beautiful as it looks. The photographs shown here do not do it justice. You really must see this guitar in person.

    If you're use to mainly playing an electric guitar, it will take some time to get use to playing this guitar, as I suspect it would any classical guitar. The neck is wide (1.96"), the fingerboard is flat, and the action is considerably higher than a well setup electric guitar. I am also a bass player, and, the neck width on this guitar is about the same as my Pedulla ET-5 Thunderbass! I now understand why most classical guitarists use a foot rest, you need one in order to hold the guitar in proper playing position to be able to reach around this neck. I would heavily recommend a foot rest in addition to the guitar. Please don't take these as negative comments, not meant to be. The reason I'm pointing these things out, is that it is so much different from playing an electric, or, acoustic guitar. So, these things are to be expected with a flamenco/classical guitar.

    Bottom line is it's just awesome! Beautiful finish, flawless craftsmanship, beautiful ringing tone. The humidor case is a very nice touch as well. The Fishman ProBlend electronics sound great. For a thin body guitar, the unplugged volume is astonishing, quite unexpected!

    Fast Action

    By EDWIN MCCLANNAN

    from Fayetteville, North Carolina

    Comments about Cordoba 55FCE Thinbody Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Flamenco Guitar:

    I have been studying classical nylon guitar as in Spanish or very formal style. This guitar has a slim body, is lightweight, and allows me to reach over the body due to the cut away and the neck is sleek and fast. The EQ really brings out a beautiful sound that you will love. I could not believe how fast transitioning the fret board and neck is compared to the true classical. This guitar has clear pick guard over the top and bottom area of the soundboard. It is a Spanish made instrument and quite beautiful. Purchased together with the case and humidifier case will avail you of Cordoba's extended warranty and some free goodies for registering on the website. I would recommend this for the guitarist that wants a classical small body guitar with nylon strings. It plays very similarly to my Martin HD-28 because of the neck and string spacing which is just a bit closer than a true classical guitar.

        By Fatboy77

        from Raleigh, NC

        Pros

        • Awesome Sound
        • Great size
        • Hardshell Humidor Case
        • Made In Spain

        Cons

        • No On-board Tuning

        Best Uses

          Comments about Cordoba 55FCE Thinbody Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Flamenco Guitar:

          Such a well made guitar, and sounds incredible. I do notice you have to tune it every time before playing. Love the humidor hardshell case. If it had an on-board tuner, it would be perfect. Love the size, especially neck. I have short stubby fingers. Can't go wrong with this guitar. I thought about the Yamaha NTX1200R, but decided on this one. Did not like the case that comes with the Yamaha.
