Cordoba

Description

Part of Cordoba's Fusion series, the 14 Maple is a beautiful crossover acoustic-electric guitar that features a solid European spruce top and flamed maple back and sides for a bright, snappy tone and sweetly pronounced high end. Other than its strikingly beautiful back, the 14 Maple's main feature is its slim steel-string feeling neck (48mm nut width) and radiused fingerboard. With an onboard Fishman Presys Blend preamp, it's also ready for the stage.

This 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.

Fusion Series
The 14 Maple belongs to Córdoba’s Fusion series, a line of high-quality crossover/hybrid nylon string guitars designed to play and feel like steel string acoustics. 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 prefer. 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.

All Fusion guitars, including this 14 maple, features Savarez Corum Alliance strings that offer the higher tension feel that most crossover players want.
