Product# J08471
OVERVIEW

Special tradititionally Spanish guitar design provides you with a lighter instrument with more resonance, attack and dark tone.

The D10-CE dreadnought appeals to the player looking for the darker, and more dynamic tone that is typically associated with solid rosewood back and sides. The D10-CE also features a solid Engelmann spruce top for added clarity along with a beautiful ebony fingerboard and rosewood bridge and binding. The styling is refined and sleek, using acacia wood on the double-ring rosette and 12th fret fingerboard inlays, capped off with Cordoba's signature elevated headstock with a rosewood strip and mother-of-pearl inlay. The finish is a thinly applied high gloss polyurethane. The D10-CE also comes with the Acoustic Fidelity System II (AFS), Cordoba's proprietary pickup that offers both piezo and mic blending capabilities. Other features include a tusq nut and saddle, gold Grover tuners, Elixir NANOWEB Light Gauge (.012-.053) strings, and a Cordoba deluxe archtop wood case with built-in HumiCase humidification.

The D10-CE belongs to Cordoba's Acero Series, a line of all-solid steel strings approached from a classical or Spanish guitar building perspective. Most notably, Cordoba is using an integrated neck joint or "Spanish Heel" instead of a traditional dovetail joint to join the body and neck of the guitar. This method of construction offers a lighter weight and more stable heel joint that increases resonance and is less prone to movement as the guitar ages. The bracing pattern is a hybrid of a Torres-style Spanish fan pattern and X-bracing, and allows the top to move freely with an explosive attack and big, dark tone.

    Comments about Cordoba Acero D10-CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I didn't see where I could review the non cutaway acoustic D10 so here it is.
    I'm particular to rosewood spruce and my other acoustic (seagull mariner sws) is same combination.
    Looks, sounds, and plays great.
    There is a dig in level available after playing mellow and quiet, the guitar has the capacity to deliver a big & interesting sound when you do play harder it amps up (i.e. with no pick-ups i.e. the guitar itself) in a smooth curve to the very intense organic edge of triple forte.
    Very cool.

    Comments about Cordoba Acero D10-CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar new as a stupid deal of the day back in February. My first impression of the guitar when it arrived was that it was a pretty guitar that sounded very good and played pretty well out of the box but I soon discovered some fret problems. With a little fret work and a setup this guitar plays and sounds great. I contacted Musician's Friend about the problem and they responded very quickly and took care of the problem to my complete satisfaction. Musician's Friend definitely stood behind their sale. I have several guitars but I spend a lot of time playing this one. This guitar was a steal at the stupid deal price but I was even more impressed with the customer service.

    Comments about Cordoba Acero D10-CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Unfortunately, this arrived with a cracked neck where the factory didn't drill a pilot hole ... instead, they just screwed in the neck strap-lock and that made it crack. I paid nearly eighty to send it back to Cordoba all the way in CA, after I was told by Musician's Friend that they had no recourse to help me on a discontinued guitar. They did offer me twenty in our American currency (which the filter on this form makes me call it) back though. Thanks? Anyway, I have yet to see if Cordoba can fix it. They hinted that once they get it in, they will determine if it was their fault that it cracked and then charge me accordingly. Oh boy, pray for me. As for the rest of it. Pickups are great, feel is awesome. Woods are wonderful. The finish work around the soundhole where it meets the neck is a joke (very poor work with varnish there). This one feels like the guitar that could have been incredible, but that will likely become a bane to me.

      Comments about Cordoba Acero D10-CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Have been playing this guitar instead of the others I own since I've purchased it. Came with a very nice hardshell case with built in humidor. I think it would have been a good deal at the regular price, but at the stupid deal price it was a steal.
