Cordoba

Description

Cordoba has chosen to honor four master luthiers whose work has shaped the history of the nylon string guitar over the past 150 years, inspiring generations of guitar builders. Each Master Series model is a replica of an iconic guitar representing significant moments in the careers of Antonio de Torres, Hermann Hauser I, Miguel Rodriguez, and Manuel Reyes. Handmade with premium materials in Cordoba's California Workshop, Cordoba has partnered with Kenny Hill to examine the original guitars, poring over nuances and specifications to get inside the mind of each maker. From Torres' signature 7-fan bracing and unique small body design, to Hauser's famed 1937 model used by Andres Segovia, the Master Series allows today's players to get their hands on a slice of guitar history at a fraction of the cost.

The Torres Classical Guitar features a solid Engelmann spruce, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, and Spanish cedar neck with an ebony fingerboard. Other appointments include an Indian rosewood binding and bridge, a rope design wood top purfling with 3-ply back and sides purfling (maple/ebony/maple), and an all-natural mosaic rope and herringbone marquetry rosette. It also comes with gold Gotoh tuners with ebony buttons and a hardshell Cordoba humidified archtop case.
