Topic: Cordoba Guitars
For some time, I've been looking around for an all-solid-wood guitar, with a Spruce top and Rosewood body ... hopefully in the $1,000 range. My frustration has continued to be with neck width, which is typically 1 11/16" at the nut for the majority of acoustics. Since I also play classical (2" nut) and 12-string (1 7/8" nut) I find myself jammed up on a standard 6-string, owing in part to my hand size.
So while visiting the luthier I use this week, he asked if I've ever heard of Cordoba Guitars. They're based on a Flamenco-style build (Spanish heel) and have a 1.8" nut width, almost identical to a 12-string. He endorsed their build quality, and they have the wood combo I'm looking for just under $1,000. Does anyone on Chordie have a Cordoba, and if so, what do you like / dislike about it? I'm going to have to order it on-line without playing it, and although the seller has a convenient return policy, it would be better to have someone's feedback first.
I found this thorough review at Acoustic Guitar, but would like to have one of your opinions if possible:
Many thanks in advance!
