Overview

The Maple belongs to Cordoba’s Fusion Series, a line of high-quality crossover or hybrid-style nylon string guitars designed to play and feel like steel string acoustics. Most notably, the necks are carved thinner than traditional Spanish-style "classical" guitars and have a nut width of 48 mm (1-7/8 in.). With the option of 12 or 14 frets to the body on most models, these slimmer dimensions, combined with a radiused fingerboard, give the Fusion Series the feel and playability that most steel string and electric guitar players are used to. Tonally the Fusion Series models have all the warmth, body, and resonance that traditional "classical" nylon string guitars are known for, and are built using traditional Spanish guitar methods like domed soundboards and fan bracing patterns in the design.

Additional features include cutaway and non cutaway body styles, Fishman or B-Band pickups, two-way adjustable truss rods, and Savarez Corum Alliance strings that offer the higher tension feel that most crossover players are looking for. Cordoba’s Fusion Series was first to effectively merge the feel of a steel string with the tone of a "classical" guitar, and with a variety of wood options and finishes is the most comprehensive line of crossover style nylon string hybrids on the market.

The Maple is built with a solid European spruce top and flamed maple back and sides. The neck has 12 frets to the body (14 also available), and has an ebony fingerboard. The bridge, binding, and headstock overlay are made of rosewood, and the rosette is hand inlaid using maple and rosewood rings. The Maple is equipped with the Fishman Presys Blend pickup, and includes a deluxe Cordoba gig bag.

The 12 fret model more closely resembles a traditional classical guitar, and allows the bridge to sit a bit further back on the soundboard, where resonance is optimized for a large sound with long sustain. The 14 fret model has a more familiar upper register for steel string players. The bridge is shifted slightly forward from the center of the soundboard, increasing ease of playability for the steel string or electric player. More frets are exposed, creating an easier territory for soloing.

    Comments about Cordoba Fusion 12 Maple Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    I played multiple guitars in store around the same price point, and this and the Fusion CE sounded and played the best, in my opinion, but I purchased this one because the finish on the back and sides with the maple flame is just gorgeous. The top is nice too but its the sides and the back that sealed the deal. I love the Fishman pickups installed and the overall playability of the guitar is fabulous.

    Comments about Cordoba Fusion 12 Maple Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    Everything about this guitar feels at homw to me. I play both electric guitars and nylon string acoustics. This was a step up for me coming from a C5-CE which is amazing of guitar for the price. The only downside was the cable inside that connects the fishman preamp was loose from the side of the guitar. Sloppy wiring for a guitar that cost this much, it shouldnt be an issue. Other than that the guitar plays and feels amazing. I can't stop playing it.
