A crossover nylon-string with a solid top and a super comfortable neck.
The Fusion 12 Natural Cedar Classical Electric Guitar belongs to Cordoba's Fusion series, a line of high quality crossover or hybrid style nylon string guitars designed to play and feel like steel-string acoustics. Most notably, the necks are carved thinner than traditional Spanish-style "classical" guitars and have a nut width of 48mm (1-7/8"). With 12 frets to the body, these slimmer dimensions combined with a radiused fingerboard give the Fusion 12 series the feel and playability that most steel string and electric guitar players are used to. 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.
The 12 Natural is built with a Canadian cedar top paired with mahogany back and sides. The rosette is hand inlaid using maple and rosewood rings, and it features 3 ply maple and ebony top purfling for a sleek aesthetic. It also comes equipped with the Fishman Presys pickup. The fingerboard and bridge are rosewood, neck has 12 frets to the body, and comes with a deluxe Cordoba gig bag.

Comments about Cordoba Fusion 12 Natural Cedar Classical Electric Guitar:
After a good deal of research I decided to go with a Cordoba fusion 12 natural. The main reason was their excellent website. I was extremely disappointed when it arrived and I found the action was unplayable. I have been involved with the guitar for over 50 years and realize that a classical instrument has a different action than a jazz guitar but this was really bad. It made me wonder what kind of quality control the company has. I returned it for another figuring this was a fluke however when the second arrived it seemed fine until I checked the truss rod and found that it would not budge. This one also went back. I now ordered an instrument from a different manufacturer.
