Inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso, the Cordoba Luthier C12-CD features several modern design elements such as lattice bracing and a raised fingerboard, which are normally only found on much higher priced instruments. We're impressed with the caliber of construction and the quality of materials used in the guitar. This guitar has a very lively cedar top and produces deep sonorous basses and very sweet trebles with lots of sustain, a nice balanced mid-range too.

Constructed of a solid Canadian cedar top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides, this guitar includes several nice touches including a vintage styled hand-inlaid mother-of-pearl and ebony rosette, a beautiful flamed maple wedge on its solid Indian rosewood back complemented by elegant maple bindings, and a very attractive set of tuning machines with ebony handles. The neck is carved in traditional classical profile and has an ebony fingerboard. The adjustable truss rod allows you to really dial-in the action. Very cleanly built both inside and out, this instrument dons an impeccable high gloss PU finish laid on at just the right thickness to protect the instrument but not mask its natural beauty. Comes with a Cordoba HumiCase humidified hardshell archtop case. Also available with a solid European spruce top.
