The GK Studio Negra is the ultimate gigging instrument. Built with a solid European spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides, this nylon string guitar comes equipped with a soft cutaway and Fishman Presys Blend pickup. The GK Studio Negra is a flamenco guitar made for the stage, constructed with a slightly thinner body depth, neck, and nut width than a traditional Spanish guitar. The neck is designed to have little or no relief, offering low action for ease of comfort and quick playability.

For flamenco players, this model offers a bassier and more robust tone in contrast to the bright, snappy sound of ˜blanca™ flamenco guitars, but any guitarist looking for a new tone to add to the repertoire will feel right at home with the GK Studio Negra. With its comfortable body shape and classic tonewood combination, this model is the perfect choice for exploring the nuances in sound that can only be captured with nylon strings.

Like every Cordoba guitar, this model also has a two-way truss rod built into the neck. Other features include a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, high gloss finish, clear golpeadores (tap plates), and premium Savarez Cristal Corum strings. The GK Studio Negra includes Cordoba' deluxe gig bag.

I received my GK Studio Negra late June after a much anticipated wait, but finally it has arrived at Guitar Center. I purchased mine from guitar center and the guitar experts at GC worked so hard in collaboration with Cordoba to get this model to me before it was available online. Ive owned this guitar for less than 4 weeks and have to say is superb to hold. Dont let the Spanish Flamenco Body Depth fool you, it is light, comfortable, thinner body but boast a deep, rich, full sound that you wouldn't expect to come from its size. Don't get me wrong, compared to a dreadnought acoustic guitar it holds very little ground, but by itself or amplified with the amazing fishman electronics it possess just outdoes itself. At first I was really gentle with it but after a week or so just got into it and this guitar can take a licking (no pun intended). It is very durable so far but im not afraid to play it at its full potential with the lifetime warranty (with a purchase of a HumiCase) from cordoba, which extents Guitar Centers warranty as well from i believe 3 years to 10 years from pretty much anything. Right out of the box the guitar looked immaculate, but after further inspection there were some little issues. The pick guard had a stain on it probably when installing it, thinking it was on the guitar i was able to lift the guard up and it was on the guard not the guitar. Cordoba has then sent me a free replacement which GC will install for me. The action was great and low but as all guitars could use a set up with an expert. The tuning keys are beautiful black with gold, the only part was some of the gold leafing was missing upon very close inspection and was nothing but cosmetic. Some of the individual keys were a little tight but can be adjusted. You really cant go wrong with a Cordoba, affordability with beauty and function. Not to mention, great customer service. Every email i sent them was replied quickly and professionally, also to get a guitar before it was listed on sale is just phenomenal. Thanks.

I bought the Cordoba Fusion 12 off the rack at GC. Didn't notice the insane rattling until I got home. Thought new Savarez strings might do the trick to remove the buzz, but it didn't. Took it to a luthier who showed me that the bracing inside the guitar was terribly loose. He strummed, pushed down on the body, and the buzzing stopped. Returned it at GC where the salesmen strongly recommended the GK model. The second I strummed it I could hear the same buzzing. I called one of the salesmen over to have a listen and he could not deny how horrible the vibration was. Could it be that both these Cordobas were just thrashed from being over-used floor models? Possibly... Other reviewers seem to like this model, but they seem to have all ordered them online. I will offer this piece of advise - be cautious with Cordobas. The models I bought/played rattled like no other. The luthier said that even without the rattling, the construction alone is not worth 700.00.

Comments about Cordoba GK Studio Negra Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Flamenco Guitar:

I've been playing guitar for 50 plus years and I own many top tier guitars.....Paul Reed Smith, Gibson Les Pauls, Parker Flys, Fender Strats, Taylor acoustics but I must admit........after a little adjustments to the neck and bridge.....I must say that it's hard to set this guitar down. I've already done some recording with this instrument in my studio it sounds phenomenal !!! You did a good one here Cordoba !!!

Loving the sound

By ARTURO

Comments about Cordoba GK Studio Negra Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Flamenco Guitar:

I went to different Guitar Centers and tried out about 30 different guitars on different days and this guitar gave me the sound I was looking for. It has a pretty warm and yet solid sound. I play flamenco and classical music and it's perfect for my solo performances. Plugging in the guitar into an amp makes it sound good too. I like this product. The guitar is pretty light weighted and it comes with a "golpeador" for tapping the flamenco techniques. I think this guitar sounds way better than other way pricier guitars. The only thing I think it can be improved on it's the soft case, I'm a bit skeptic of these, I prefer hard case. Other than that I'm very happy with it and my fans love the sound too.

Great Overall Guitar - Not Just Flamenco!

By Gregory Hathaway

from Santa Monica, CA

Comments about Cordoba GK Studio Negra Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Flamenco Guitar:

I picked up this guitar a few days ago, and am completely in love with it! I play many different styles including classical, flamenco, jazz/bossa nova and blues, and I find that this guitar is perfectly well suited to all styles. The playability of the instrument is incredible - the thin neck and low action mean that I can play much longer with a lot less hand/wrist pain, and with a lot less "scrabbling around" on the neck. And I love the sound, both acoustic and electronic. Acoustically, each note has good definition with nice crispness in the tenor range and deep bass (the reason I bought the Negra). The Fishman preamp is excellent with plenty of adjustability to fine tune the sound for any style. I also find the construction and finish nearly flawless. For a fairly high-level amateur player (if I don't mind saying so myself! :-)) this guitar is perfect. Not being a true flamenco player, I'm probably not qualified to make a recommendation based solely on that style of playing, although I can't imagine why it wouldn't be great for that too. But as an all-around nylon string guitar, I recommend it very highly and think it's worth every penny! gh

The Guitar worth to have

By Issaic Russo

from Astoria, NY

Comments about Cordoba GK Studio Negra Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Flamenco Guitar:

when i walked into the store and tried guitars around the 600 dollar mark, there were a few guitars that sounded good. But the GK studio negra stood out from the rest and had a fine tone to it. Great sound and nice guitar for the price, the one i ordered had a good amount of action and wasn't buzzy, overall i am pleased with my purchase would recommend to a friend any day!

A joy to Play

By John Chamberlain

Comments about Cordoba GK Studio Negra Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Flamenco Guitar:

This guitar is beautiful instrument! It has good action which makes it comfortable to play and I think the sound (low and high end) is very pleasing. This is my second Cordoba guitar purchase and I am quite impressed with the quality of these guitars. I am recommending the Cordoba brand to my students because of excellent quality and value that this company offers. John Chamberlain Midlothian, VA
